Montana in midst of expanding quality preschool

June 15, 2017View for printing

Working parents of young children pay dearly for child care in Montana. A recent analysis from the Montana Budget and Policy Center pegged the annual average cost of full-time care for a 4-year-old at nearly $8,000 a year.

Low-income families all too often find high-quality preschools out of reach; regardless of income, those who live in Montana's most rural communities have similarly limited options.

So we should all applaud Montana's recent progress on expanding quality preschool programs. Hopefully, these first shaky steps will lead to more stable footing that will soon allow Montana's preschools to be off and running.
