HIGH QUALITY CHILDCARE BEGINS WITH HIGH QUALITY MANAGEMENT!
Brock Country Day opened in Summer of 2004 with the goal to be a high quality childcare with a loving & respectful environment. Brock Country Day continues to offer high quality child care as our reputation and references from our clients overwhelming share with us. We will continue to commit to high quality child care and being leaders in the Childcare Services.
Brock Country Day is licensed by the State of Texas for Center Child Care. In addition, we volunteer to submit to the regulating body Texas Rising Star. Texas Rising Star is a voluntary, quality-based child care rating system of child care providers participating in the Texas Workforce Commission's subsidized child care program. Texas Rising Star Certified Providers exceed the state's minimum child care licensing standards and, in return, receive valuable benefits. In 2015 Texas Rising Star was revamped and the certification requirements were elevated for higher quality of childcare and teacher education qualifications. This impacted the Texas Rising Star program greatly since majority of the childcare centers would not commit to this level of standards or could not pass the certification requirements.
We are proud to say that Brock Country Day was the first and only Parker County Child Care Center to receive the 2015 Texas Rising Star Certification for Child Care Centers. We recently completed our renewal certification and continue to hold a Texas Rising Star Certification. Brock Country Day typically has less than 5% of our families qualify for subsidized child care program, however, submitting to this higher level of childcare standards is very important to ensure we delivery high quality and up-to-date childcare services.
