Participation with The Nevada Registry became a requirement for all caregivers working in licensed child care settings in April of 2009 (as per State Child Care Licensing regulations) and was fully phased in as of December 31, 2012. Mandatory participation with the Registry means that we now have a representative picture of the ECE workforce in our state for the first time in Nevada’s history. This page provides the accumulated summary/overview of growth since the inception of the program in January 2004. This page is updated on a quarterly basis.
