Mansfield Home Childcare Association
Thank you for your interest in the Mansfield Home Childcare Association. The association was started in 2005 with the sudden growth in Mansfield, Texas and the need for Home Childcare Providers. The association’s main purpose is to increase the quality of care children receive by offering provider’s valuable training & support. The Association meets every month to exchange ideas, receive required annual training & meet fellow providers. Through this network of providers, we support one another and exchange ideas to enrich the children’s lives that we care for every week.
MHCA offers a variety of training topics to providers, including child growth & development, SIDS/Shaken Baby Syndrome, early brain development, tax & record keeping trainings. Members will receive a training certificate verifying 1.5 hours of training for each meeting attended.
The association requires that members provide us with a current copy of their CPR/First Aide training certificates, as well as a current copy of their Registration Certificate & proof of payment of the yearly renewal fee. These requirements insure that parents are being referred to providers that meet at least the minimum standards set by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), who are registered, licensed or listed.
Many of our provider's are affiliated with the Texas Professional Home Child Care Association (TPHCCA) and the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC), as well as other child centered organizations. Some Provider's are also members of a state food program and offer well balanced healthy meals and snacks.
Again, thank you for your interest in our Association; we look forward to seeing you soon!
