Nevada Ranks eighth in the nation as least affordable in licensed preschool programs. That’s why we offer the Strong Start Academy Pre-K program. Read more below about our academy locations and mobile pre-K bus.
The Strong Start Las Vegas campaign was launched by the city to advocate for and bring awareness to the importance of early childhood education from birth to age eight, which supports school readiness and grade level reading. We know that 90 percent of the brain develops before Kindergarten and that experiences during the first five years of life are crucial. As part of the effort to build our community to make lives better, we have invested in pre-K infrastructure to increase access to high quality early childhood education.
The Strong Start Go Mobile Pre-K Academy offers children and families an affordable high quality early education program closer to their neighborhood. This program provides half-day pre-K classes along with family engagement workshops and activities at no cost to families.
