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 directorStephanie Blakeman

Having joined the Early Childchood Education field in 2007, I bring classroom and administrative experience to my role as Center Director. My degrees in Deaf Studies and Early Childhood Education allow me to connect with children and their families in a meaningful way. My background in child care center management and customer service allow me to connect with teachers in a way that promotes a nurturing and educational environment for all. My favorite part about being a Center Director is spending time in the classroom getting to know all of the children. Thank you for sharing your beautiful children with me. I am excited to be a part of not only the MIT family, but yours as well."
