Drop-in Child Care

Looking for child care for a night on the town, while you shop, or to catch a Griz game at the U? Or maybe you’re seeking permanent child care but have a need for care in the meantime?

Missoulians are fortunate to have several licensed “drop-in” child care centers where you can pay for child care by the hour and only when you need it.

Most of Missoula’s hourly child care centers accept children from age 1 through 12, with some accepting infants. Each center has extended hours into the evenings and on weekends. All serve meals and snacks and offer a wide variety of age-appropriate activities for children in a well-supervised, safe and secure environment.

Here’s a list of hourly care centers that accept children on a “drop-in” basis. Call each center for specifics about hours, rates, meal plans, ages of children accepted, and other details.
