Child Care Workforce

TXICFW is committed to gather and report on the rates charged to the general public (or the “market rate”) for child care in each of the 28 local workforce development areas (LWDAs) of Texas).  We provide reports to the Texas Workforce Commission and Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDBs) to assess the cost of child care services available in local workforce development areas. TXICFW believes providing market rate data on child care services throughout Texas will create better services and opportunities for families to acquire the child care needed to succeed.
