Texas State Dept. of Public Welfare, Austin.
This report reviews the issues raised in revising the existing Texas child care licensing statute. The brief final report gives an overview of the history of the Day Care Licensing Review Project. Position papers concerning the major issues involved in a consideration of child care regulation in Texas form the bulk of this report and include: (1) consideration of statutory alternatives in the development of an effective legal framework for the licensure of day care facilities for children, including such concerns as period of licensure, provisional licensure, denial and revocation of licenses, and methods of enforcement; (2) review of alternative State roles in the regulation of private preschool education facilities in Texas; (3) discussion of the possible alternatives for regulating child care in Texas and description of several models for registration of family day care homes; and (4) consideration of the issues involved in fee charging for day care licensing. These issues were discussed at four regional forums attended by day care directors, lawyers, judges, educators, parents and child care professionals. Summaries of their responses to these position papers are included in the report, as well as transcripts of the original Texas child care licensing statute and the child care licensing act of 1975.
