    At this site they tell the differences between listed, registered and licensed. It seems licensed centers/homes need to meet higher standards and are visited by licensing personnel regularly.

  • I am not sure about Texas, each state varies. You can go to your states webpage and look up the process to see what is required. Where i live I can be listed but only watch 3 children, no background check no classes nothing to give you a sense of piece that i have been checked out by anyone but you, If I want to watch more than 3 children i can take classes on childcare safety and laws, reoprting and recognizing child abuse, get a food handlers card, a background check, and becoe CPR/First Aid certified. After all that you have to pass a home inspection by the state and believe me there are alot of things you have to do to be ready for them, once you pass that you are licensed for 2 years then you have to attend yearly classes on various subjects and also a home inspection every 2 years.
