Programming will be provided through Jan. 1, 2021. The program provides the Las Vegas community a safe, caring and affordable childcare option, which will also provide academic and technical support for distance learning. Each site provides age and grade appropriate academic, artistic and recreational programming.
Space is limited due to social distancing and other safety guidelines mandated by the Governor’s Office. The cost for all academies is $20 per day per child, or $100 per week. A onetime $20 registration fee will be charged at the time of enrollment. This fee will be discounted for families who enroll multiple children. First child registration is $20, second is $15 and each additional child is $10.
