PEARLAND, Texas – A childcare center in Pearland has seen an increase of families since Texas Gov. Greg Abbott released an order saying daycares can open.
“I’m getting calls every single day trying to see if we have services available because some parents are stressed out because they say they don’t have anyone to take care of their kids and they have to go to work and they don’t know what to do,” said Virginia Robinson with Taking Kidz Places.
Taking Kidz Places is located on Shadow Creek Parkway and Kirby Drive.
Parents must sign in their children outside the front door and use hand sanitizer before they enter the business.
Taking Kidz Places has been open throughout the pandemic, taking care of children of essential workers.
The staff members said they have been doing activities that limit child-to-child contact.
“If everybody’s taking precautions, it is safe. It’s very safe once they’re taking precautions. If they don’t take precautions, I advise you not to open if you’re not gonna do what is required of you.”
