Onsite day care initiated in Texas.

Onsite day care initiated in Texas

State-owned buildings in Texas will be housing day care facilities for the children of State employees as part of a bill signed by Governor Bill Clements. The bill mandates the building of onsite or nearby day care facilities at all State buildings. In addition, designers of new State buildings must consider inclusion of a day care facility.

The program will be financed by the Texas Capital Trust Fund, which collects money for capital improvements from the sale of State-owned land and property. The law allocates up to $400,000 from the fund beginning with the 1990 fiscal year to provide renovations of State buildings for day care centers for the next two fiscal years. The money will first be used to start a pilot program for workers at agencies in Austin, the State's capital. The program is expected to be operating smoothly within a year, leading to adoption of programs in other cities with large numbers of State workers.

A child care development board, consisting of representatives from the offices of State administrators, will manage the program. The board will set the standards for child care services and select a licensed child care provider who will be responsible for all aspects of operating the facility.
