City of Henderson Scholarship
The City of Henderson works in partnership with the State of Nevada Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) to provide financial assistance for individuals using Safekey, Teen Scene and other youth enrichment programs. The CCDF Child Care Program assists low-income families, families receiving temporary public assistance and those transitioning from public assistance in obtaining child care so they can work or attend training/school. CCDF monies are also used for activities to improve the quality of child care by financially assisting childcare providers in their professional development maintaining healthy, safe, and appropriate learning environments for children (up to age 12). Other services provided include resources and referrals for parents seeking child care and consumer information on aspects of quality child care. Resource and referral services are available to all Nevada families at no cost.
The City also provides scholarships for individuals on CCDF waiting lists and for select Parks and Recreation programs. A financial assistance application for the City of Henderson scholarship may be picked up at any recreation center. For more information, call (702) 267-4100.
