      With COVID Vaccines Ramping Up, So Are Child Care Waitlists

      Workers at Casa de Corazón locations found out Tuesday that they had been chosen to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

      “It does sort of feel like winning the lottery,” Casa de Corazón founder Natalie Standridge said.

      The state of Minnesota is currently vaccinating a limited number of child care providers, but plans are in the works to expand as more supply comes in.

      Standridge says they have had an increase in inquiries, tours, and enrollment this month.

      “Now with the vaccine it’s really a light at the end of the tunnel for so many individuals and families,” Standridge said.

      Their child care centers saw anywhere from a 20-30 percent drop in enrollment when many families were able to get in without waiting. Things started pick up again in the fall. Now several locations are getting back up to a 12-18 month waitlist for infants.

      We are honored to be a part of Aspioneer’s Best Franchises in 2020! We just opened our third franchise and are excited to expand into more communities to build brighter futures for children.

      “I love partnering with other entrepreneurial spirits who want to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves. I share what I have learned through two decades of experience in this industry willingly and wholeheartedly,” explains Natalie.

      We are looking for franchise owners who believe children deserve the highest quality education in the healthiest environment possible. They want to be a part of a growing market that impacts their community. They are passionate about creating a legacy. They hope to own and operate a company that makes a difference in the lives of our future generations.
