Searching for solutions to Missoula's childcare crisis

June 22, 2018View for printing

Esther and Beau McBryde have a 1-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son to care for. When their son, Alistair, was an infant, they tried alternating their work schedules, with Beau working nights at Harlow's Truck Center and Esther working days as a social worker at Community Medical Center, but they couldn't make it work. They found a home daycare where Alistair stayed a few days a week while they offset their work schedules to cover the other days. More than a year later, when their job schedules changed, they enrolled Alistair at Origins Education Preschool, a Missoula childcare center for infants to 5-year-olds, where he stayed until last fall, when he started kindergarten.
