Of particular interest to residents of Eastgate and Westgate, and especially to spouses and partners, four information sessions coming up in October address “Becoming a Licensed Family Childcare Provider” in the new MIT Campus Family Childcare network.
Once providers have taken the training and become licensed, planned for about January 2016, the childcare network will host infosessions for MIT grad students in need of affordable campus childcare options.
The October sessions are for anyone interested in the process of becoming a provider.
- Wed. Oct. 14 at 10 am, in Westgate Lounge
- Thu. Oct. 15 at 3 pm, in Eastgate Lounge
- Thu. Oct. 22 at 3 pm, in Westgate Lounge
- Fri. Oct. 23 at 10 am, in Eastgate Lounge
Licensed MIT Childcare providers in the network will run their own business and set their own fees and contracts, earning about $8-10 per child per hour. The sessions will explain the financial assistance available for start-up costs and technical assistance provided to you to help you through the licensing process with the Massachusetts Office of Early Education and Care (EEC). You will also learn about the professional trainings, marketing materials, and referrals that this program can provide. There will be ongoing assistance and networking with other Family Childcare Providers. Bring all you questions to the session.
