Nevada State-Subsidized Childcare

Families in Nevada who meet specific income requirements may be eligible for state-funded childcare services. This funding can assist in reducing any childcare costs for families.

Child Care Subsidy Program

The Child Care Subsidy Program, administered by the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services, helps low-income families to afford quality childcare. If you meet the income and need requirements (e.g., working, attending school, or participating in job training), you can apply through the official Division of Welfare and Supportive Services website.

The Head Start Program

The Head Start and Early Head Start programs offer free learning and development services to children aged 0-5 from low-income families. Services can also be provided to pregnant women. The services provided include health, nutrition, social, and other services determined to be necessary by family needs assessments. You can find official Nevada Head Starts in:
  • Clark County
  • Washoe County
  • Rural Nevada

Finding the Right Provider and Environment

The State of Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health's Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance oversees the licensing of childcare facilities in Nevada, whether they are in-home or center-based. Check their licensing status and any violation history to ensure they comply with all health, safety, and child-protective laws in Nevada.

Registering Your Child for Childcare or Preschool

Once you've found a childcare provider or preschool that suits your needs, the next step is registration. This process typically includes filling out paperwork, providing evidence of immunizations, and possibly attending an interview or orientation. Check with each provider for specifics.


Choosing the right childcare or preschool for your child can be a significant decision but remember that the perfect choice depends largely on your individual family needs and circumstances. With a variety of options available, knowing about the resources at your disposal can significantly ease your decision-making process.
