First Step Learning Center receives high TRSP honors
In October of 2013 First Step Learning Center of Hearne was recognized as a Texas Rising Star Facility for the second time.
The learning center was first recognized in October of 2010 and have been providing childcare services since 2002. The learning center also meets Texas Rising Stars childcare providers with teaching certificates. Most employees either have their teaching certificate or are in the process of receiving their teaching certificate.
The Texas Rising Star (TSR) certification is available to Licensed Center and Registered Child Care Home providers who voluntarily meet requirements that exceed the State’s Minimum Child Care Licensing Standards.
The TSR Provider certification system offers three levels of certification (Two-Star, Three-Star, and Four-Star) to encourage providers to attain progressively higher certification requirements leading to a Four-Star level.
Those providers that voluntarily achieve TRS Provider certification, offering quality care that exceeds the Stat’s Minimum CCL Standards for health and safety, group size, child/staff ratios, caregiver training, and age-appropriate curricula and activities, are the providers that contribute most significantly to the early development of children.
The First Step Learning Center takes children from 6 weeks of age through their after school program.
The learning center preps children for school, teaches social skills, feeds nutritious meals, and is a locally owned business.
