Las Vegas has the well-earned reputation as America’s adult playground. Along the famed Strip are mega-resorts, casinos, posh restaurants and world-class entertainment. However, behind the glittery facades are the working people who go to their regular jobs every day, raise families and face the same realities as everyone else in America. Single moms in Las Vegas, a city of a million residents, must find suitable jobs and have the added responsibility of giving their kids the best possible care. There are many day-care, preschool and other facilities for kids of working parents in Las Vegas. Single moms have a variety of job options in a city where many of the hotels, restaurants, clubs and other facilities are open 24 hours a day. The working single moms have choices of resources that allow them the most favorable time to spend with their kids. Here are several of the most recommended. – Ted Sherman

Resort Childcare Facilities

Las Vegas, NV 89121
(702) 432-7569

Single moms may find it advantageous to find jobs that combine adequate income with having as much time with their small kids as possible. An ideal arrangement would be for the mom to work in or near a resort that has in-house quality childcare. Charges for care range from $6.75 to $8 per hour. Because Las Vegas resort staffs operate on a 24-7 basis, it gives single moms opportunities to work shifts in the casino, front desk, security, restaurants, housekeeping and other areas that could offer varieties of shift jobs. While on the job, the single moms can also make quick visits to in-house childcare facilities. If they work late shifts, they can spend quality daytime hours at home with their kids.
