Childcare & Parenting

They say it takes a village to raise a child, so why do it alone? Get connected to other parents, and find all the information and help you need. Here are different MIT organizations who provide resources and consultations concerning childcare and parenting.


  •  Attend informational briefings about infant and toddler childcare at the MIT Work-Life Center
  •  The MIT Work Life Center offers support for parents seeking all types of childcare (from fulltime daycare to babysitters to backup childcare)
  • Backup Childcare is available for both student & postdoc families in their homes or on site at local daycare centers.
