Program Details and Partnerships
Safekey is a before- and/or after-school recreational enrichment program designed for children, age 5 – 11 attending kindergarten through fifth grades offered at 68 Clark County School District (CCSD) elementary schools within the city of Las Vegas.  The program follows the CCSD calendar and operates only on days that school is in session (no p.m. Safekey on half days).  Daily and weekly scheduled activities include physical fitness, nutritional education, arts and crafts, music and drama, reading time, games, special events, homework and tutoring assistance, literacy programming and nutritious afternoon meals/snacks. 

This year the city of Las Vegas is proud to partner with the Clark County School District, Southern Nevada Health District, Three Square, APPLE Core Reading Program and the Andson Foundation in order to offer a program that is much more than just a place to drop off your children before- and/or after-school; Safekey provides the tools and resources that are the key to unlocking your child’s potential.  With the recent addition of the Three Square Kids Café, a program of Feeding America, we are able to provide full nutritional after school meals at all eligible Safekey sites.  Additionally, we are helping in the fight against childhood obesity by teaching kids how to make healthy choices in their lives by integrating nutrition education materials and a physical activity component into our program through our CATCH Kids Club.  This coupled with a safe, supervised, fun, socially-interactive environment makes for the most well-rounded before- and after-school program available.
