The City of Reno announced yesterday the opening of an early learning center at the Community Assistance Center at 335 Record Street.

“This learning center will provide much-needed security for community members working toward independent living,” said City Councilmember Oscar Delgado. “This facility truly illustrates the power of community partners coming together to serve our most vulnerable families.”

The center gives homeless families childcare opportunities as a licensed childcare facility. The preschool serves up to 42 children each day, ranging from infants to 6-year-olds.

“The opening of this center represents a community response to caring about children and families facing difficult circumstances,” said Mike Pomi, executive director of The Children’s Cabinet. “The organizations involved in this effort collaborated to provide manpower, support, and ideas to create a safe, welcoming place for kids.

“The Early Learning Center 2 is the terrific outcome of listening to the needs and concerns of parents and working together to create solutions for our community.”
