Texas Childcare Director Qualification Training


Using Care Courses to qualify for the Texas Director’s Credential means that you will be qualifying under subsection (a), option 7 in §746.1015 of the Texas Minimum Standards for Child Care Centers. This qualifies you to be a director of a child care center licensed for 13 or more children.

This option states that you will have 9 college credit hours in child development and 9 college credit hours in business management and 3 years of experience in a licensed child-care center. Texas accepts Care Courses towards the college credit requirements at a rate of 50 clock hours for 3 college credits.

You or the Permit holder will submit your training and experience qualifications to licensing along with the following information:
  1. A completed Licensing Personal History Statement form specifying the education and experience of your designated director;
  2. A completed Licensing Request for Criminal History and Central Registry Check form;
  3. A completed Licensing Affidavit for Applicants for Employment form;
  4. A completed Licensing Governing Body/Director Designation form; and
  5. An original and current Licensing Child-Care Center Director’s Certificate form; or an original college transcript or original training certificate which verify the educational requirements; and complete dates, names, addresses, and telephone numbers which support the required experience.
You must submit the information to licensing as part of a new application for a permit and within ten days of designating a new director.

Licensing will grant you the director’s certificate.

If you wish to become a director of a child care facility in Texas, you must first speak with a Texas child care licensing representative to determine what training you are required to have.

Your training requirement will be based on two things:     
  • the state’s current training requirements for directors, and     
  • any training you have had in the past (for which you may get credit).
Only a Texas childcare licensing agent can give you this information.   

Texas Director Qualification requires training in child development and management. We recommend the following sets of courses in each of these areas. If you need fewer than 150 clock hours of training in either child development or management, select only the courses you need from the following bundles. If you need more than 150 clock hours in either child development or management, please send an email explaining your needs to: info@CareCourses.com
