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.
If you have recently taken the 60 hour Infant -Toddler class or the 60 hour MT Preschool Teacher Education class, you can apply for the monetary awards through the ECP website. Please see the Incentives tab for more information.
If you have taken college classes from a Montana university during the summer semester, and are working toward a national credential in Early Childhood, you can apply for the PDIA-HE summer award. Please see the Incentives tab for information about applying and qualifications. Applications are due by September 3, 2021.
Montana Registry provides scholarships for teachers, directors, owners, and family/group providers working in childcare to complete coursework in early childhood education.
