The onset of COVID-19 in the United States has led to a dramatic shift in the child care landscape. Beginning in March 2020, many child care businesses were forced to close their doors to stem the spread of the virus. Some have closed indefinitely. However, with state mask mandates relaxing and an ever-increasing percentage of the population becoming fully vaccinated, the nation is beginning to return to a pre-pandemic sense of normalcy.
With more than 35,000 customers, Procare Solutions, the leader in child care management software, can offer an important and unique perspective on the recovering state of the child care industry. In this report, Procare provides data showing the impact of COVID-19 on trends in attendance as centers begin to return to full capacity.
