In order to become a Regulated Provider, you will need to gather the following documentation and submit them to CCCS:

  • Copy of your rates for child care for all age groups for which you provide services. If you serve school age children, please be sure to include:
    • rates for before and after school and
    • full time rates for school breaks and summer care

Relative Care Provider

A parent may choose to use a relative of the child as their child care provider. An eligible relative is an individual who does not reside in the same household as the child, is at least 18 years of age, and is, by marriage, blood relationship, or court decree, one of the following:
  • the child's grandparent or great-grandparent;
  • the child's aunt or uncle; or
  • the child’s sibling.

Individuals who are listed on the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Sex Offender Registry are not eligible to be a relative care provider.
