Texas Early Childhood Education Newsletter I September 2021
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, child care centers were some of the most economically vulnerable businesses in Texas. During the pandemic, Texas families relied on child care providers more than ever for essential services and critical early childhood education. While some providers were able to innovate and keep their doors open, others struggled to stay afloat under new pandemic-related pressures.
In this September 2021 Issue of the Texas Early Childhood Education Newsletter, the CHILDREN AT RISK team unpacks the impact of the pandemic on Texas child care providers, highlights stories of recovery and renewal from providers throughout Texas, and makes recommendations for policy change in the near future.
