As a solutions-oriented, nonpartisan early childhood policy organization, Zero to Five Montana is a catalyst for change – working toward a Montana dedicated to every child.
We know there are not enough quality early care and education settings in Montana to meet the need for families seeking care. And when families can’t access child care and preschool, they miss work, cut back on hours, or rely on inadequate options.
We need policy solutions that work for Montana’s children, families, and employers.
When children and families have access to early care and education, all Montanans can thrive.
Zero to Five Montana is working with leaders across the state to strengthen and expand the early childhood system. Some of our collaborative partners include:
- Zero to Five Montana Infant/Toddler Tribal Language Pilots
- Zero to Five Montana Community Child Care Innovation Pilots
- Zero to Five Local Community Collaboratives
Together, we are focused on increasing access to early care and education and supporting the state’s families, communities and our economy.
