Tip of the Day: Is The Nevada Registry the Same as Child Care Licensing?
Posted Friday, July 31, 2015 by Shelly Nye
While the Registry works very closely with Child Care Licensing, they are two very separate and distinct programs. The Registry’s focus is on individual professional development and providing resources to the ECE community. In contrast, child care licensing is a regulatory agency responsible for licensing child care facilities and monitoring those facilities for regulation compliance. Commonly, there is confusion as it relates to the training approval system. While the Registry is responsible for reviewing and approving all informal training for the state, licensing is responsible for verifying that the annual training requirements outlined in the regulations are met. In this case, the Registry provides the resources to the ECE community in the form of the training calendar, whereas Licensing’s role is regulatory in nature.
