Participation in 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 R112-06 and R001-09) 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.

As of September 30, 2020
