Welcome To

Providing a loving home like experience to every child, where they can play and develop with caring experienced staff.

Big Timber Daycare

Big Timber Daycare opened in 2018 after we saw an overwhelming need for more child care in Sweet Grass County. We have a fantastic staff that loves children, is here to help them grow and develop to the best of their abilities and loves providing a positive atmosphere for each child that comes here.


Our mission is to care for children in a positive atmosphere, giving them time to play, and develop their God given abilities .


Our vision provides a loving home like experience to every child where they can play and develop with caring experienced staff.


Our philosophy is play-based. We allow children to learn about their environment through play experiences every day all day.

I just wanted to take a minute to brag on what an awesome daycare/preschool/childcare place we have in this community. Big Timber Daycare has always gone above and beyond to help me with all my kiddos. They have made last minute room when I get last minute placements. They are understanding when those placements have issues and are flexible with the never knowing how long the kids will be there. That alone is incredible, but they go above and beyond that. They send me pictures and notes of my kiddos throughout the day. Not every day, but I know when there is an issue. My favorite, I don't just get messages when there is a problem. They also send me notes to brag on things my kids are doing. I LOVE them for how they love my kids...even the harder ones. THANK YOU, Stacey Smith and crew!! We all love you!
