From centers to in-home settings, full-time to part-time schedules, and bilingual to Montessori programs, you'll find the best Houston daycare & child care near you. As a Houston parent, you have a significant amount of options for child care in this city nearly two and a half million strong. Early childhood is an incredibly formative time for your child, though, and as a new family figuring out the right routine and logistics choosing child care is no easy feat. The first decision on your child’s child care journey often comes down to setting: do you want to place your child in in-home care, where she or he will be in a provider’s own home, or do you want a center-based environment that has more structure but less familiar feel? Center-based care doesn’t just mean preschool; center-based care can be for those as young as infants. Center-based care is popular amongst families looking for a more structured, reliable environment with plenty of resources for activities, learning and development; centers tend to be larger, with more socialization opportunities and more professionally trained staff. Centers can offer more specific learning curriculums, too, although many do not; in-home care on the other hand often doesn’t follow a specific pedagogy when it comes to learning and development. In-home child care is often known as daycare and is popular amongst parents looking for that familiar home feel for their child. In-home is often popular as a first transition out of the family home. In-home care ranges from infant daycare to programs for older students, as well, and can be part-time or full-time depending on the needs of the family and the hours of the caregiver. While centers are often known for their range of approaches and pedagogies, in-home care, too, comes in various shapes and sizes. In Texas, in-home daycare generally breaks down into three buckets: licensed child-care homes, registered child-care homes and listed family homes. The three primarily differ based on enrollment size, although these differences cascade down to how these homes are regulated. Licensed child-care homes are the largest of the three, as they serve seven to twelve children thirteen years of age or younger; registered child-care homes are the next tier, serving up to six children at a time thirteen years of age or younger. Listed family homes are the smallest, capped at no more than three unrelated children cared for at once. All three daycare types serve care out of the primary caregiver’s home, but all three are subject to different safety and security regulations. Licensed child-care homes must be fully licensed, meet minimum standards and receive at least one unannounced visit a year; registered child-care homes must hold a license, comply with minimum standards but only receive one unannounced visit every one to two years. Listed family homes are not licensed, do not have to meet minimum standards and do not receive visits unless there are complaints made against the home. While paying for child care, even in-home daycare, is expensive, Houston parents do have some options as to how to receive subsidized care for their little ones. Houston offers free pre-kindergarten to Houston families that qualify for aid, for children four years of age (and occasionally for three year olds if there are slots available), and pre-kindergarten facilities span the entire city. Pre-kindergarten is almost always attached to a greater elementary school; if you’re interested in pre-kindergarten, you can check with your local elementary school to see if it’s offered there or look up what pre-kindergarten serves your neighborhood online, as some elementary schools do not offer these programs. If your child isn’t yet a fit for pre-kindergarten, you can apply for aid through the Texas Workforce Commission, which provides eligibility based on family income status and parental status in the workforce, in training or searching for a job. Parents can apply for subsidized child care through the program and if accepted, can send their child to a licensed child care center, licensed child-care home or registered child-care home; one saving grace for families can be if no schools in those sectors have availability on the timelines families need, families can also apply their subsidized care towards care provided by a relative. The Texas Workforce Commission is a state agency, with different standards depending on where you live in the state, so parents that’ve moved to Houston recently should re-check their eligibility if they’ve previously applied for the program while living in a different city.
