YWCA Billings is one of a few organizations in Yellowstone County that provide school readiness curriculum and the only one providing a program for children as young as 6 months. The first five to six years of life are critical to a child’s lifelong development. During this time, young children’s experiences and environments set the stage for their future development and success in school and life by establishing the neural connections that provide the foundation for language, reasoning, problem solving, social skills, behavior and emotional health.
Early childhood education improves school readiness in young children which ensures their transitions into kindergarten are smooth and that they are equipped for success in grades 1 through 12.

Montana Child and Adult Care Food Program
Nutrition is a very important part of good health. Children need well-balanced meals in order to meet their daily energy needs, and to help them build strong bodies and minds.
Our Child Center meets children’s nutritional needs by providing breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. We are part of the Montana Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), which requires us to serve meals and/or snacks according to Federal Regulations.
