What We Do

Partnering with families
to support the developmental needs of children
where they live, play and grow.

What does the Child Development Center do?

The Child Development Center is a western-Montana nonprofit who supports children who have developmental delays and disabilities. Our team primarily works in families’ homes and communities, and we serve kids from birth to high school graduation.

Thanks to our partnership with the Developmental Disabilities Program of MT Department of Public Health and Human Services, most services are provided free of charge. More information about Montana’s Developmental Disabilities Program (DDP) is available on their website.

What programs do you offer?

The Child Development Center offers four programs: Montana Milestones Early Intervention, Autism and Behavioral Services, Family Education & Support and the Life Skills Program. We understand that no two children, and no two families, are alike. For this reason, services are individualized to strengthen each family’s independence and maximize each child’s abilities.

All children deserve the opportunity to pursue their potential. With support, every child can thrive.

The Child Development Center contracts with the state’s Department of Public Health and Human Services through the Developmental Services Division, Developmental Disabilities Program. We bill Medicaid or private insurance when applicable. The rest of our funding comes from grants and private donations. You can find our form 990 on guidestar.org.
