Child Care Subsidy Program
The City of Henderson works in partnership with the
Las Vegas Urban League to assist parents who have
children attending Kids Zone, Safekey or Teen Scene.
The Urban League’s Child Care Subsidy program
provides subsidies for child care services to low-income
families with parents who are working, attending school
or training. The program operates in conjunction with
the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services to
improve the quality of child care and early childhood
development in Southern Nevada. To contact the Urban
League for information, call 702-473-9400.
The City of Henderson also works in partnership with
respite provided through the Desert Regional Center.
Contact the provider of this program for assistance at
It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to provide a
copy of the Child Care Subsidy certificate or respite
form to the city. Providing a copy of the certificate does
not automatically enroll the child. Children must be
registered prior to attending any of the city’s child care
programs, even if the subsidy provides 100% coverage.
Registration must be completed at the Youth Enrichment
office, located at the City Hall Annex, 280 S. Water St.
Child care subsidies are only applied to registered
service days on or after the day that a copy of the
child care certificate has been received by the
city, even if the “care authorized from” date on the
certificate is prior to the date received by the city.
Parents/guardians are financially responsible for
annual registration costs and any days or percentages
not covered by their current certificates. Maximum
reimbursement rates may not cover all program costs,
so parents will be charged the minimum difference at
the time of registration. The city accepts cash, checks,
money orders, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Make
checks/money orders payable to City of Henderson.
As per our refund policy, credits/refunds/transfers
are not granted for missed days. In the event the
Urban League or Desert Regional Center denies the
City of Henderson’s claim for reimbursement, you are
financially responsible for the difference. Services
may be denied if a balance is placed on your account
or registration has not been completed. Most subsidy
programs do not cover the yearly registration charge
of $10 (applies to Safekey/Teen Scene), late charges
and costs for extended stay.
