Technology Children's Center at Lincoln Laboratory



MIT has long been dedicated to providing a supportive workplace that promotes work-life balance. Back in 1972, we identified high-quality childcare as a key component of that mission, and we established MIT's first full-day childcare program—the Technology Childcare Center (TCC) at Eastgate graduate-student housing complex. Today, we operate five TCC centers—four on the MIT Cambridge campus (The David H. Koch Childcare Center, Eastgate Childcare Center, Stata Childcare Center, and Westgate Cooperative Preschool) and one near MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington (Lincoln Laboratory Childcare Center)—accommodating a combined total of 380 infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.

Located in Lexington Massachusetts, the Lincoln Laboratory Childcare Center is convenient for members of the MIT community working at Lincoln Laboratory and for families who reside in the suburbs northwest of Cambridge. The TCC Linc program is enriched by the presence of early childhood education student interns from Minuteman. This is the only center that invites non-MIT-affiliated families to apply.
