Child Care Regulation Updates for Child Day Care Providers

The following are recent changes that Associate Commissioner for Child Care Regulation Jean Shaw is announcing:

We’ve been slowly introducing our new name, changing from Child Care Licensing to Child Care Regulation. Since moving to HHSC, CCR has been working on continuous transformation including the following new appointments.  

  • Rachelle Daniel is the new state office director of Child Day Care Regulation. Rachelle has over 20 years of combined experience with DFPS and HHSC.  Rachelle has 11 years of experience within the Centralized Background Check Unit, including more than 5 years’ experience as the director of CBCU.
  • Lana Estevilla is the new deputy associate commissioner of Regional Operations.  The deputy associate commissioner is a new position within CCR and oversees both the Residential and Child Day Care programs. Lana has over 13 years of CCR experience. She has spent the past six years as the director of policy and operations for CCR. 
  • Julie Richards is the new deputy associate commissioner for Program Operations.  This is also a new position within CCR, overseeing the background check program, quality assurance program, training program, policy, rules, data and IT program. Julie has over 14 years of CCR experience spending the last five years as the director of field for daycare operations.

We appreciate the work you do and look forward to our continuing collaboration to provide the best care for children in regulated operations.
