Handprints Academy Earns 4-Star Accreditation from Texas Rising Star Program

Handprints Preschool locations in Dallas and Nacogdoches have earned a 4-Star Accreditation, the highest rating possible.

Dallas, United States - November 12, 2019 /PressCable/ —

Dallas, Texas— Handprints Academy is pleased to announce that it’s Dallas-Peavy Road and Nacogdoches preschool centers have earned 4-Star Accreditation from the Texas Rising Star Program. Four-stars is the highest rating possible rating available from this Texas Workforce Commission program.

The Texas Rising Star program is “a voluntary, quality-based childcare rating system of child care providers participating in the Texas Workforce Commission’s subsidized child care program.” TRS Certification is available to Licensed Center and Licensed and Registered Child Care Home providers who meet the certification criteria. The TRS Provider certification system offers three levels of certification (Two-Star, Three-Star, and Four-Star) to encourage providers to attain progressively higher certification requirements leading to a Four-Star level.

“We recognize the responsibility we have as a preschool to ensure the learning environment for children is at its best,” said Chad Elias, owner, Handprints Academy. “Our goal is to ensure that all of our locations achieve this level of accreditation, so parents know they have the right partner in their child’s development.”

A Texas Rising Star (TRS) provider is a childcare provider that has an agreement to serve Texas Workforce Commission (TWC)-subsidized children and that voluntarily meets requirements that exceed the State’s Minimum Child Care Licensing (CCL) Standards.

Across Texas, parents and families enroll their children into childcare programs, including center-based and home-based programs. Numerous research studies have shown that at-risk children who attend higher quality childcare programs are more prepared for school entry than children who do not attend quality childcare programs.

Those providers that voluntarily achieve TRS provider certification, offering quality care that exceeds the State’s Minimum Child Care Licensing Standards for director and staff qualifications, caregiver-child interactions, age-appropriate curricula and activities, nutrition and indoor/outdoor activities, and parent involvement and education, are in a better position to contribute to the early development of children. As providers progress through the levels of TRS provider certification, they contribute progressively more to the development of the children they serve on a daily basis.

TOKYO — The lawyers of former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn, who is awaiting trial in Japan, said Thursday they have asked that financial misconduct charges against him be dismissed.

Hong Kong police say homemade bomb targeted officers

HONG KONG — A homemade, remote-controlled bomb intended to "kill or to harm" riot control officers was detonated as they deployed against renewed violence in Hong Kong over the weekend, police said Monday, in a further escalation of destructive street battles gripping the business hub. The "loud thud" Sunday night close to riot officers who had been clearing away a protester-built road block marked the first known use of an explosive device during protests that started in June over a contested extradition bill and have snowballed into an anti-government, anti-police and anti-China movement. "It exploded less than 2 meters (yards)...

BEIJING — Asian stock markets have risen after Washington and Beijing announced a truce on tariff hikes in a trade war. Benchmarks in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul advanced.

President Donald Trump agreed Friday to put off planned tariff hikes this week on Chinese goods in a fight over Beijing's trade surplus and technology plans. In exchange, he said China would buy American farm goods. But the two sides reported no progress on basic disputes that sparked the 15-month-old fight that threatens global economic growth. Friday's truce "has simply temporarily halted the escalation...
