The Bozeman School District is looking for a new daycare center at Hawk’s Nest



Bozeman, Montana – Over the coming months, adjustments will be made to the Bozeman High School Hawk’s Nest daycare program.

In the Bozeman School District and Bridger Charter Academy, The Hawk’s Nest provides child care for employees, independent contractors, and teen parents.

On August 31, the district’s agreement with the Gallatin Valley YMCA was about to expire. According to a news release from the school district, the YMCA requested an extension after stating that they wanted to end their contractual commitments on December 31 of this year.

In order for individuals who are interested to submit, the district has now posted a request for bids on its website as they look for a new daycare provider. The deadline is October 11 at 5 p.m.

They are searching for a qualified childcare provider that has experience with kids between the ages of eight weeks and five. Providers would be obligated to provide care on PIR days and during the summer, with shortened summer hours, and would do so from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

It is preferred that providers offer high-quality, age-appropriate early learning experiences. The Hawk’s Nest collaborates with the Bozeman Reads initiative to encourage early literacy abilities before kindergarten.

Although they use public resources including Bozeman High School and custodial services, as well as receiving some packaged food, Hawk’s Nest employees are paid through tuition rather than receiving a salary from the district.

During the application process, factors like background, experience, and letters of recommendation will be considered. Additionally, those who are applying are required to attend an obligatory facility tour on September 25 and bring recommended timetables and curricula.
