Child Care Services

Welcome to Child Care Services (CCS) for the Workforce Solutions for the Heart of Texas!

CCS, an important program of Workforce Solutions, has three overarching goals. They are to:
(1) help parents pay for child care so that they may enter the workforce or complete their education/training,
(2) increase the professionalism of the early childhood workforce by providing curriculum, materials, and professional development and
(3) improve outcomes of our future workforce by increasing access to quality early learning programs designed to prepare children to succeed in school and beyond.
