Bill establishes voluntary preschool for low-income Montana children

March 18, 2017View for printing

A bill entering the Montana House of Representatives Monday would create a voluntary preschool program for 4-year-olds from lower-income families.

House Bill 563, or the Montana Preschool Grant Program, would give children who qualify access to what Rep. Kathy Kelker, D-Billings ... AWSID=16507 , says is high-quality preschool education.

"This is not babysitting, this is not daycare, this is with a qualified teacher who has a background in early childhood," she said.
