Nevada Receives $600K Federal Preschool Development Birth Through Age Five Grant

The Office of Early Learning and Development within the Nevada Department of Education has been awarded nearly $600,000 through a federal preschool development birth through age five grant.

The one-year grant will help Nevada develop plans to collaborate and coordinate its existing early childhood care and education programs within a statewide mixed-delivery system to prepare low-income and disadvantaged infants, toddlers, and young children to enter kindergarten. The funding will allow Nevada to conduct a comprehensive statewide birth through age five needs assessment, followed by in-depth strategic planning, while both enhancing parental choice and knowledge of programs and improving transitions between early childhood and school systems.
