Texas Home Daycare

There are three types of home based child care providers in Texas: Listed family homes, Registered Child Care Homes, and Licensed Child Care Homes.
  • Listed Family Homes: Provide child care in their own homes for 1-3 unrelated children, for more than four hours per day, three or more days a week, and more than nine consecutive weeks. After receipt of an application and licensing background check clearances, a certificate is issued. The listed family home caregiver must be at least 18 years old. However, there are no minimum standards, orientation or training requirements for listed homes. They are not inspected unless a report is received alleging child care is offered subject to registration and reports of abuse or neglect are investigated.
  • Registered Child Care Homes: Provide care in the caregiver's home for up to six children under age 14; they may also take in up to six more school-age children. The number of children allowed in a home is determined by the ages of the children. No more than 12 children can be in care at any time, including children of the caregiver. The application process requires that a registered child care home provider complete an orientation class and receive clearances on background checks. A registration certificate is issued after licensing staff completes an on-site inspection to ensure minimum standards are met. Registered homes are inspected every 1-2 years and if a report is received related to child abuse/neglect or standards deficiencies.
  • Licensed Child Care Homes: Provide care for less than 24 hours per day for 7-12 children under 14 years old in the permit holder's own home.
