Head Start Enrollment 3,316

The total population of Nevada is 2.8 million—and more than two-thirds live in the Las Vegas metropolitan area.  The tourism industry remains Nevada’s largest employer—and this has a significant influence on the well-being of families who are employed in service-related industries.

Another vastly rural state where the Head Start programs are concentrated nearer the larger cities, Nevada has an estimated 46,000 at-risk children under age five. Of those, only 14% of three- and four-year olds had access to Head Start. And only 2% of children under three had access to Early Head Start.

Just seven Head Start grantees or sub-grantees provide services to 3,100 children and support a total enrollment of more 3,100 adults in adult education, workforce training, parenting and dual-language classes.
