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.
ECSB will not be awarding incentives for the 60 hour Infant Toddler and MT Preschool Teacher Education courses after June 15 since those courses have been discontinued. If you took those classes within the past year and have not already submitted an application for payment, please submit your application under the Incentives and Awards tab in your registry account by June 15. Classes that were taken more than a year before your submission will not be accepted. If the Infant Toddler class is taken through a college for a degree after the Fall 2022 semester, it can be submitted for a PDIA-HE award.
Applications are now available for the Spring 2023 PDIA-HE awards. Please see the Incentives tab or the newsletter that was emailed for more information.
