Since 1985, the Montana Early Childhood Project (ECP) has been dedicated to improving the quality of programs and services for Montana's young children and their families.
We work closely with partner organizations across the state to promote early childhood professional development. On a national level, we are actively involved in The National Workforce Registry Alliance and other organizations to promote a knowledgeable and skilled early childhood workforce.
