Schools are back in session and with the ongoing nationwide teacher shortage, now is the time to start your career in early childhood education.
In the state of Texas, new caregivers in child-care are required to have a minimum of 8 hours of training before being given responsibility for a group of children and to be counted in the staff/child ratio, and an additional 16 hours within 90 days of employment. This adds up to the 24 Hours of Pre-Service Training required by Rule §746.1305 of the Texas Administrative Code regarding, “What must be covered in pre-service training for caregivers?" For the full text, including training requirements, see Minimum Standards for Child-Care Centers as published by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Child Care Regulation.
