Child Care Centers

You’ll find three types of licensed child care options in Montana: family care, group care, and center care. Each option is differently suited to address the specific needs of the families they serve – but rest assured, whichever licensed option you choose will be a great one.

Child care centers are out-of-home environments  in which day care and early learning is provided for thirteen or more children on a regular basis. Some centers include formal preschool programs, however all facilities provide early learning experiences. Licensed child care centers provide positive, safe and healthy learning environments for children.
