Each year we receive many applications for childcare. Applications are placed on the waiting list in the order they are received. Priority for enrollment is determined by a tier system as follows:

Our online application is designed as a convenience for families and is used by the six child care centers that operate on Harvard's campuses. It is hosted on a secure server at Harvard University, but each child care center is independent from the university and from other child care centers and has sole control of its enrollment process.

Enrollments for the PTCC program year starting in August are usually offered in the early spring of that same year. You will not be offered a space unless you submit an application and application fee. You will get an automated email to letting you know that your application has been received. Please check your spam folder as sometimes these messages end up there.

No child or family shall be discriminated against because of race, religion, cultural heritage, sex, national origin, disability, political affiliation, marital status, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
