Texas Rising Star Providers 
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)-subsidized children and that voluntarily meets requirements that exceed the State's Minimum Child Care Licensing (CCL) Standards. TRS Certification is available to Licensed Center, and Licensed and Registered Child Care Home providers who meet the certification criteria. 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.
