Some parents may scramble, at times, to find child care during the summer months. For some working parents with younger children, it’s a year-round challenge. And for Houston parents who want high quality care for their child that’s affordable and convenient, it can be a long and frustrating process to find day care that fits. We discuss when parents should begin looking for child care and what they should look for before settling on a day care provider, on this edition of Houston Matters.

Also: The World Health Organization says there have been more than 1,700 cases of Ebola and more than 900 deaths since the start of the outbreak in Africa earlier this year. Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and, more recently, Nigeria are batting the virus. The World Health Organization is meeting in the coming week to discuss the possible use of experimental drugs in the outbreak. Researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch were recently awarded a grant of up to $26 million to develop drugs against Ebola. We learn more about the research they’re undertaking.

And: CultureMap Houston sports columnist MK Bower joins us, to discuss the latest goings-on in Houston sports.
