From centers to in-home settings, full-time to part-time schedules, and bilingual to Montessori programs, you'll find the best Austin Daycare & Child Care near you. As a parent, choosing the right child care provider is a weighty and important step to take for your family. In general, Austin parents have two options for where they want to send their child: a center-based environment or an in-home setting, often called daycare. While center-based options are often popular for parents of children that are slightly older, more developed and ready for a more structured day, in-home daycare is popular for parents that welcome the opportunity to send their child to a space that’ll feel a little like the family home. A center-based environment can be considered a preschool, too, but doesn’t necessarily have to be, whereas in-home child care is not a preschool and usually doesn't offer the same clear education or pedagogy that a preschool may offer. In-home care is served by a provider out of her or his own home. In-home care is therefore almost always in a small environment; most providers will not be licensed for more than an eight or twelve student maximum capacity. Children may benefit from the cozier setting, however, and the small community gives parents, children and the provider an opportunity to bond and form close relationships. In-home daycare is especially popular for Austin parents seeking to transition their child into someone else’s routine care for the first time, as the family-like environment of a provider’s home can make for a smooth first transition outside of the family home. In-home daycare is highly regulated, though, and providers must apply for and secure a child care license, meet criteria and standards for safety and host regular inspections from the state. Texas differentiates between in-home childcare providers based fundamentally on capacity, as homes with seven to twelve children are referred to as licensed child-care homes, homes with up to six children are considered registered child-care homes and homes with up to three children are called listed family homes. There are different standards for these different provider tiers, however, and parents should be aware of this as they consider where to send their child. Licensed child-care homes, as the highest tier of in-home child care provider, receive at least one unannounced visit per year by regulators in Austin; registered child-care homes only receive at least one unannounced inspection every two years. Listed in-homes are the least regulated, and don’t have to comply with minimum criteria and only receive an inspection if there are reports of abuse or problems within the home. Paying for child care in Austin is challenging for many if not most families, but the city of Austin does provide financial assistance for those who qualify and encourages families to join a waitlist for subsidized child care. In Travis County, subsidized child care is provided to eligible low and moderate income families by Workforce Solutions Capital Area Child Care Services. The program provided by Workforce Solutions is subject to current funds, so eligibility doesn’t mean families will necessarily receive aid, but qualified parents are encouraged to check their eligibility and join the waitlist if they qualify. Families may also be eligible based on whether parents are in training or school, as well, in addition to income requirements. Families that are accepted into the Workforce Solutions program have the freedom to choose amongst over 400 providers that contract with the program. These providers include both licensed child care centers and licensed child care homes. Austin providers currently contracted include Angels Care and Learning Center, Dora Gallegos, Elizabeth Riney and Ebenezer Child Development Center. Over 100 of the 400 total providers are Texas Rising Star program participants as well. Note that if your family qualifies for subsidized child care but cannot find an open spot at a participating provider that fits your family’s needs, you can actually arrange child care with a relative and still receive funded care. The program offers other benefits as well, such as monthly parenting classes to help parents get familiar with the program, requirements, policies and to highlight the importance of high quality child care and education. Because participation in the Workforce Solutions program is not just limited to in-home providers of child care and daycare, Austin parents enrolled in the program can continue their child’s education into a center-based program if the family feels that a center is the right next step for their child. Centers are popular amongst parents for a more structured approach to the day and often a clearer sense of educational philosophy. Centers included in the Austin program include Ashford Montessori, Generations Child Development Centers, Growing Imaginations Learning Center and more. Workforce Solutions providers also include some locations in Pflugerville.
