For Families

We support member organizations, advance the early childhood profession, and improve the quality, affordability and accessibility of child care.

Our Mission


is more important

than your family!

For Providers

Child Care Resource and Referral programs help families find and evaluate child care, learn about child care regulations, and develop an understanding of child care services.

Montana's child care system recognizes four types of child care and requires that anyone caring for 3 or more unrelated children on a regular basis become registered by the state.
