Governor Bullock Announces $3 Million to Expand Preschool in Montana

June 7, 2017View for printing

Montana Governor Steve Bullock today announced the availability of $3 million for Montana preschool programs to expand access to quality early childhood education for four-year-olds. Governor Bullock worked with the 2017 Legislature to secure the first-ever state investment in publicly funded preschool. Funding to create a pilot preschool grant program was included in House Bill 639 and passed with bipartisan support.

"Focusing on our youngest Montanans gives all families and their children the building blocks they need to succeed, prosper, and contribute to the state's economy," said Governor Bullock. "This funding will expand access to preschool options that are affordable to families in both small and large communities who want to make sure their kids enter kindergarten ready to learn."
