The Center offers a comprehensive network of resources to assist MIT community members in finding or using child care services for children of all ages, as well as an internationally recognized program of services to support those in the community who are raising children, including biological and adoptive parents, step-parents, guardians, grandparents, extended family, foster parents, and others responsible for children's care.
Originally established as the Child Care Office in 1970, the Center maintains a strong commitment to supporting the child care needs of MIT families. See Child Care Information.
Over time, the Center's range of services for families has expanded dramatically. While continuing to assist families with child care needs, the Center now also offers a broad range of resources for parents and families with children of all ages, from infancy through adulthood. See Parenting.
