Morningstar Learning Center
Enrollment for Academic Year 2024-2025

 Morningstar’s mission is to develop and connect Big Sky’s young children and families by providing reliable childcare, quality early education, and supportive resources from planning through parenthood. 

Our school operates year round using an academic calendar (September through August). We require a minimum enrollment of four days a week, Monday through Thursday, from 8:30am-4pm. We also offer limited Extended Day spots from 4pm-5:30pm. We are currently closed on Fridays, but we hope to soon offer limited Friday spots as well from 8:30am-3:45pm. Enrolled families are eligible to add drop-in Extended Day and Fridays, based on our availability.

Any family who wishes to enroll a new infant at age 6 months is advised to notify Morningstar at the earliest opportunity with the expected birth and enrollment dates. Infants will be placed on a waitlist for their expected month of enrollment, and spots will be assigned based on availability in order of our admission priorities.
