All clients are required to notify their child care provider any time a child will be absent. The child care provider is required to report to Workforce Solutions Northeast Texas when a child is absent 5 consecutive days. (i.e. Monday - Friday; Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Monday, Tuesday). The Provider will be paid based on the days of care you are authorized based on schedule and needs. Every time the child care provider reports your child(ren) absent will count against the total number of absences allowed within your 12-month period. Workforce Solutions Northeast Texas will pay the child care provider every other week for your child(ren)'s care. You will be required to pay a portion of your child care cost, called a parent share of cost, to the child care provider.
This assures the provider will reserve a place for your child while he/she is absent. Children are allowed 40 absences within their 12-month eligibility period.
