You should use the "forget your username or password" option on the front page of Harvard Careers. We recommend candidates set their security questions carefully, utilizing question/answer combinations they can easily reference later. Note: please be sure to disable any autofill settings or password manager applications, especially if you recently changed your password.
If you are unable to unlock your account using your security questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s a good idea to apply as soon as you know you will need care, whether you are expecting a baby or moving to the Cambridge area. Even if you are applying “late,” please don't assume that every center is full and that it’s not worth applying. Harvard's population is very mobile and things can change quickly.
Child-care centers are licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care. Group sizes, adult-to-child ratios and the number of square feet required per child are all regulated by law.
No, families must apply to each center individually. You can apply to one or more centers using the universal online application, available at the web sites of each of the centers. You will only need to enter your family’s information once. You will need to indicate, however, which centers you wish to receive your application by checking the relevant boxes.
