NDE, OELD Seeking Non-Profit Sub-Grantees for State Pre-K

The Nevada Department of Education (NDE), Office of Early Learning and Development currently sub-grants with school districts, charter schools, and non-profit organizations to provide no-cost pre-K programs and wrap around services to 4-year-olds whose families are at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Limit. Licensed child care facilities are eligible to receive State funding to implement high quality State Pre-K seats, but are required to partner with a non-profit organization.   This partnership is a valuable way to expand our State Pre-K program.
