Great early education for the children of Missoula!

Because education comes first at Honeybear Daycare Center, all of our programming options center around a fun, stimulating, and educational environment.  We gear all of our lessons to the right ages and development levels for your children, working to develop their motor skills, language skills, emotional and cognitive development, and more. Our caring staff fully understands that each child has his or her own unique abilities, and we work on responding to those individual learning styles to boost their strengths and interest while working on areas that need improvement.

Our mission is to provide quality educational service to the children and families of Missoula, Montana. We strive to give parents more than they expect when they enroll their children at Honeybear Daycare Center. We have several educational opportunities for your children. Licensed by the state of Montana for children ages 2 to 8, Honeybear Daycare offers in additional to our daily childcare program:

  • Preschool education
