A Texas Rising Star (TRS) Provider is a child care provider that has an agreement with a Local Workforce Development Board's (Board's) child care contractor to serve Texas Workforce Commission (TWC)- children on scholarship and that meets requirements that exceed the State's Minimum Child Care Licensing (CCL) Standards. All providers that have an agreement with the child care contractor are considered "TRS Entry Level" providers until they have been completed the official certification process. Providers on agreement include Licensed Centers, and Licensed and Registered Child Care Home providers. The TRS Provider certification system offers three levels of certification (Two-Star, Three-Star, and Four-Star) to encourage providers to attain progressively higher certification requirements leading to a Four-Star level.
