Safekey 2019-2020 school year
Safekey is a before- and after-school youth enrichment program that is part of the city’s Strong Schools initiative. Safekey offers opportunities for learning beyond the school bell and is designed for children ages 5-11 attending kindergarten through fifth grades. It is offered at 70 elementary schools within the city. Morning passes cost $7, while afternoon passes cost $10.
The program follows the Clark County School District calendar and operates only on days that school is in session. Daily and weekly scheduled activities include physical fitness, nutritional education, arts and crafts, games, STEAM activities, special events, homework time, literacy programming and nutritious afternoon snacks. The Department of Youth Development & Social Innovation manages the program. For more information, view the Safekey Parent Handbook.
The Safekey program accepts many childcare subsidy certificates and Employer-Issued Child Care Assistance Vouchers. Currently, financial aid is not available, but you can be added to a waiting list by calling 702-229-KIDS.
