At Partners Child Care Services, our goal is to provide high-quality, developmentally appropriate child care options to the employees of Partners HealthCare.
We appreciate the challenges of finding the right child care for your family. To help, we offer services that include:
- Traditional child care services operated by Partners
- Backup child care services operated by Partners
- Priority enrollment for the children of Partners employees
- In-home backup child care through a contract with Care.Com - Backup Care (formerly Parents in a Pinch)
- Information and referral services through the Partners Employee Assistance Program
We invite you to learn more about these services and how they can benefit you and your family.
Partners Child Care Services operates three traditional child care programs, the MGH Children's Center, the IHP Children's Quarters and the McLean Child Care Center; these programs offer full day, year round child care for Infant, Toddler and Preschool age children for the benefits-eligible employees of the institutions they serve.
Partners Child Care Services operates two backup child care programs, the MGH Backup Center and the BWH Backup Center; these programs offer emergency and backup child care for children Infant through 12 years of age for the benefits-eligible employees and patients of the institutions they serve.
Please note rate change: The hourly tuition rates at the BWH and MGH Backup Child Care Centers will increase effective October 2nd, 2016.
The hourly rate for backup child care as of 10/2/16 will be $8 per hour, per child. The new rate continues to be at or below the average rates reported by Boston and surrounding area employer-supported backup child care centers and/or services.
For families with three (3) or more children scheduled to attend the program at the same time, the maximum rate will be $20 per hour for the sibling grouping.
Priority enrollment for the children of Partners-affiliated institutions is available at the Children’s Corner at Newton-Wellesley Hospital.
Care.Com - Backup Care (formerly Parents in a Pinch) is a service provided to all benefits-eligible employees who receive their benefits from BWH, MGH, NWH or Partners Corporate.
Please note: Effective January 1st, 2016, there will be a change in the way care is paid for; instead of paying the Caregiver directly, employees will pay the same hourly co-pay to Care.com, which will be charged to your credit card after the care has taken place.
A wealth of family resources, information, and assistance is available through the Partners Employee Assistance Program.
