News, Updates & Events

Attention Center Directors and Owners!

Do you have a large space at your facility that would accommodate a group of adult learners? Would you be willing to offer your space free of charge to approved trainers in the evenings and on the weekends who are looking for new locations to offer their Registry-approved training? If so, please let The Nevada Registry know as we are keeping a running list of facilities who have expressed a willingness to open up their location to trainers. Working together we can increase professional development opportunities for the ECE workforce in Nevada! 

Thank you!
