The David H. Koch Childcare Center

Welcome to TCC Koch—The David H. Koch Childcare Center

The light-filled classrooms of MIT’s newest childcare center feature design elements drawn from the landscape and culture of the surrounding MIT campus and the Cambridge environs. The result is an inspiring state-of-the-art space for MIT children and families. Construction of MIT's newest TCC facility was made possible through the generosity of MIT alumnus and Corporation member David H. Koch SB '62, SM '63, who provided a lead gift, and alumnus Charles W. Johnson CE '55 and Jennifer C. Johnson. Koch recognized the demands facing parents at MIT who balance demanding carers with the responsibilities of raising young children.

Meet the directorBrendamarie Contreras

I have been an early educator for over 35 years and take great pride in creating early learning enrivonrments where children, their families, and teachers find joy in each day. Albert Einstein said, 'it is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge'. Children have one childhood, is is an honor to be a part of it!"
