Jewish Nevada Preschool



What is the Jewish Nevada Right Start Program?

Right Start, the first program of its kind in Nevada, was created to increase awareness and access to Jewish early childhood programs for our community's families. Jewish Nevada Right Start provides a financial voucher as a one-time incentive for Jewish families enrolling their children in a Jewish infant, toddler, or preschool program for the first time.

Why Jewish Preschool?

A child's early years are the most formative. What a child experiences before age 5 becomes the foundation for thought patterns, value structures, and ways of viewing the world into adulthood. Jewish preschools partner with families to ensure each child's earliest years are filled with engaging play, exciting discoveries, loving teachers, laughter and friendship. Through the richness of traditions, rituals, and stories, Jewish preschools help families raise children who have a sense of wonderment and responsibility for the world around them. Jewish preschools aren't just about the children. Through each child's experience, the whole family is engaged. They are immersed in the richness and diversity of Jewish life. They are welcomed and supported. Celebrations are infused with new meaning, and the friendships created can grow throughout your child's lifetime.


Applications for 2024 are now open. Apply now for children starting for the first-time on or after January 1, 2024.
