Benefits & Perks

Discover resources for childcare @ Harvard

When you come to work each day, you don't stop being a parent, or the child of a dependent relative. Harvard offers an array of resources to make that balancing act a bit easier. Are you a nursing mom? Are you looking for daycare or an after-school program? Do you have a backup plan if your dad's home-care falls through? Harvard's Office of Work/Life or Employee Assistance Program (EAP) may have a service that suits your needs.

Child careHarvard's Office of Work/Life offers a wide range of help to working parents, including

  • Assistance finding and paying for childcare;
  • Information on local school districts, after-school programs, summer camps and school vacation programs;
  • Financial assistance toward adoption costs;
  • Flexible back-up care programs to help you when regular care for a dependent child or adult fall through.

In addition, there are six on-campus child care centers in Cambridge and Boston. Each center is independently operated and manages its own enrollment.

Please visit Child Care @ Harvard for details on all these benefits and more.
