CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Some child care providers were recognized Wednesday for taking extra steps to educate young children by Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend.

Texas Rising Star child care providers are actually certified by Workforce Solutions, and were honored in a ceremony at the Workforce Solutions office.

"These particular providers go above and beyond by learning new ways to teach our children," said Monika De La Garza of Workforce Solutions. "So they help them grow emotionally, socially and intellectually, which is very important to us as a workforce center because that's building our future workforce."

Officials used the occasion to encourage other child care providers to be certified as Rising Stars.
