About Variety Early Learning Center:
By way of background, in 1955, the Variety Club of Southern Nevada Tent 39
recognized the need for a day home that would care for children of working mothers.Through their efforts and with support of local hotel owners and entertainers, their vision became reality. The Divine Providence Variety Day Home opened doors in 1956 and was the first of its kind in Las Vegas. Tent 39 chose the Sisters of the Holy Family to operate the Day Home, which eventually became the independent, non-sectarian, not-for-profit known today as Variety Early Learning Center. Community need grew over the years and led to the Center expanding its services. Today, the Variety Early Learning Center is consistently recognized for its academic excellence and its commitment to the community to provide affordable, high quality early education for the children and their families. www.varietyearlylearningcenter.com
