Minimum Standards Overview

  • 21Steps


We’ve got rules to follow – these protect everyone, especially the children and families. Every staff person who works with children in a licensed facility or family day home is required to know and follow Minimum Standards for Child Care. Knowledge of these standards contributes to safe, quality care, providing clear guidelines and equipping everyone for regular compliance visits from licensing representatives. This introductory course is designed to give new staff an overview of what is required by licensing. It covers caregiver responsibilities, behavior management, staff-child ratios, guidelines for different age groups, record keeping and food and sanitation. Handouts include a listening sheet for taking notes, state documents and forms, and a printable copy of Texas Minimum Standards for Child Care.
