School Readiness

Ensuring our children enter school ready to learn

We are committed to ensuring that every child in Nevada has the opportunity to enter school ready to learn by creating a comprehensive early childhood system in Nevada.

A few of our accomplishments around school readiness include:

  • Established the Strong Start for Children Campaign, which is aimed at mobilizing parents, educators, advocates and community leaders to make quality early childhood education a priority in Nevada.
  • Partial restoration of child care subsidy funds to support low-income working families' access to quality early learning programs, resulting in a 118% increase in State Pre-Kindergarten program slots from 2012 to 2014.
  • Advocacy training provided to over 1500 individuals throughout Nevada.
