Message from the Nevada Department of Education, PDG Team:

Calling all ECE providers! Did you know Early Childhood practitioners are sharing their voices and ideas to help the state develop a statewide ECE Workforce Wellness Guidebook? We are committed to transforming the way statewide early childhood resources are developed by intentionally including as many voices from practitioners as possible. Please share your voice by completing a quick scenario survey and/or opt in to participate in other ways.

We want to hear from you for your vision for wellness. Click here to participate.

This statewide ECE Workforce Wellness Guidebook, when complete, will be available to all care providers and include specific wellness strategies that have been successful in our Nevada context, as well as ideas to support staff in meaningful ways. Through Preschool Development Grant Birth through Five (PDG B-5) funding, companion wellness grants will also be available for providers to apply for and receive support in implementing their own version of the strategies from the new guide.

Should you have any questions or want to be informed on updates and progress of the guidebook, but not participate in future focus groups, please email Jamie Mendez, our Early Childhood Workforce Specialist at jamie.mendez@doe.nv.gov.
