Eastgate Childcare Center

Welcome to TCC Eastgate—The Eastgate Childcare Center

The Eastgate Childcare Center has served two generations of MIT families. Its care and education programs emphasize language development, multicultural experiences, and collaborative relationships between teachers and families. In the heart of MIT’s East Campus, the center includes an infant room located in Building 68, toddler and preschool classrooms located in Building E55, and a well-equipped playground shaded by graceful birch trees.

Meet the directorDoreen Anzalone

I entered the field of early education because I believe that children should be supported in all areas of development through exposure to high quality and enriched learning experiences. I also believe that children learn effectively through hands on activities that foster their sense of inquiry and are built around their interests. This belief has inspired me to teach at every age level, to teach educators at the college level, to mentor teachers as an education coordinator at TCC Koch, and currently to serve as a director of TCC Eastgate. I hope to inspire and mentor teachers as they acquire skills and reach their goals which will complete the cycle towards creating high quality education for children."
