Welcome to Texas Professional Home Child Care Association

In 1989, the first conference for family child care providers in Texas ended with the beginning of the Texas Professional Home Child Care Association. The momentum created by the interest of family child care generated a dynamic organization dedicated to quality home child care in order to best serve the children, parents, and providers in Texas.

Within the first year, TPHCCA became incorporated and a non-profit organization. The association has included over 1,300 volunteers to represent family child care in the local, state, and national child care community. The annual conference, quarterly newsletter, regional workshops, and representatives in every region help the family child care community become a recognized voice for Texas children. Our Annual Conference has continued to enhance our growth and professional development for our members.

TPHCCA strives to maintain a healthy working relationship with regulators, agencies, corporations, policy makers, and other interested organizations to ensure that family child care remains an identifiable choice for working families. Additional details can be found in Members Benefits.
