Finding Child Care

Child Care Resources maintains a database that includes all types of legally operating programs, both licensed and unlicensed. We have information about ages of children that the programs serve, hours of operation, rates and programming. We update our database regularly, particularly so we know which facilities have vacancies.

Paying for Child Care

Child care is expensive, period. Child Care Resources administers Montana’s Best Beginnings Child Care Scholarship program to help families with low income cover the cost of child care.

Developmental Milestones

These guidelines for specific ages were developed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help you assess how your child is developing, learn how you can help, and know when to seek professional assessment.
