Every Montana deserves the opportunity to get quality, affordable child care.
It is essential for our economy; it is essential for Montana workers to have the freedom to go to work knowing their children are safe.
For many families the cost is out of reach, if they can find child care at all. Not only do we have an affordability crisis, we have an availability crisis.
Affordable childcare is essential to keeping our Montana parents employed
The Governor’s proposed budget for HB 2 does not go far enough even though there is 2 billion dollar surplus
