Tuition rates

We establish tuition rates for MIT Technology Childcare Centers (TCC) every year after evaluating TCC priorities and surveying local tuition rates and teacher salaries at non-TCC providers. The tuition rates below apply to MIT affiliates only and are subject to change annually.

Note that tuition rates are higher for employees of the Broad Institute, Whitehead Institute, Draper Laboratory, and employees of on-site contracted vendors. Higher rates also apply to families who are not affiliated with MIT, including Minuteman Vocational Technical High School employees. (Non-affiliates are eligible to enroll at Lincoln Laboratory Childcare Center only). Check with the enrollment coordinator for details.

The age ranges for classrooms are as follows: Infant is 8 weeks to 14 months, Toddler is 15 months to 2.8 years, and Preschool is 2.9 years to kindergarten entry.
