Montana Early Learning Alliance

The mission of the Montana Early Learning Alliance is to work towards a future where Montana’s early childhood system engages families and provides resources for affordable access to a developmentally appropriate learning environment for every four-year-old that is led by a highly skilled early educator who is valued, respected, and fairly compensated.

The Montana Early Learning Alliance (MELA) is a multi-sector partnership of early care and education organizations dedicated to identifying a pathway for quality preschool options across Montana. This group meets monthly to discuss evidence-based research and solutions that make sense for Montana. The alliance can provide data, policy guidance, and resources to support efforts to implement quality preschool. Learn more about early literacy efforts underway in Montana.

MELA partners with the National Institute for Early Education Research for policy guidance. Montana partners Include:
