Research demonstrates the vital importance of professional education for individuals providing early care and education experiences for children. What we do or do not do for young children makes a difference in their learning capabilities and their future success in life. Ensuring that individuals who provide these experiences have the knowledge and the skills to provide quality early care and education environments is essential. Ensuring that ECE professionals are then recognized for their professional accomplishments, formal ECE education and specialized training is essential to the growth of the field and to the public understanding of Early Care and Education as a viable and critical profession in our society. These are the guiding principles that form the foundation of The Nevada Registry’s Vision and Mission.
The Nevada Registry’s Vision and Mission were originally created in 2005 when the Registry was in its infancy. Both statements were recently reviewed by members of the Registry Advisory Committee and revised in May 2020. A Value Statement was also formulated as part of the revision process.
Nevada’s diverse and stable Early Care and Education workforce is well-educated, highly-skilled, valued, equitably compensated and supported by a comprehensive professional development system to support positive outcomes for children and families.
The Nevada Registry recognizes and supports the Early Care and Education (ECE) workforce by promoting members’ professional growth and contributing to workforce data and research in order to foster high quality early learning for children birth through age 8.
The Nevada Registry is committed to delivering services in a professional and respectful manner while valuing each member’s personal and professional journey. We openly collaborate with partners and stakeholders to strengthen the state early childhood system and elevate public awareness of Early Care and Education as an essential resource for the community.
