Only licensed facilities are eligible for Best Beginnings Child Care Scholarship payments, the Child and Adult Care Food Program, STARS and facility grants.
Part-time programs do not have to be licensed in Montana. Preschools and school-age programs operating a few hours a day or only part of the year are exempt from licensing. Drop-in care also falls in this category.
