There is no question that the coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused great uncertainty around the world. According to researchers, the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.The disease causes respiratory illness with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing.
As a result of COVID-19, millions of students are out of school and completing their studies online. However, child care programs are considered "essential". Child care homes and centers are still open for business. Many parents are in need of full-time care, as they begin to transition back to work. As school districts continue to cancel and delay classes, parents will be in need of emergency child care. The demand of child care programs will be on the rise over the next several weeks. Starting a child care business, whether a child care home or child care center, has never been more lucrative. While we are not minimizing the effects of COVID-19, we are raising awareness on the anticipated increased need of child care programs in Texas.
