Children Come First is a licensed child care facility. CCF started out as a mother's day out program in 1970. The program slowing grew over the years and became licensed for full-time care in 1985. Since 2001 we have been implementing full curriculum in all of our classrooms.
FOUR STAR PROVIDER
Children Come First is proud to be recognized as a Texas Rising Star Provider through Childcare Assistance Services. We have been recognized with the highest rating (4 stars). Rising Star Centers meet standards that are higher than the Texas Department of Protective and Regulatory Services Minimum Standards for Day Care Centers. These requirements include lower group sizes in the classrooms, additional annual training requirements for staff, and increased director and caregiver responsibilities in goals, activities, and equipment. We joined the program in August of 2002 and in early 2003 had our first evaluation becoming a 4 star provider. Assessments are completed annually on our staff and center.
