All interested families are encouraged to apply to SFPCC. You do not have to be affiliated with Harvard Business School or Harvard University in order to apply. We do, however, have the following priority in admission:

  1. siblings of families currently enrolled at the Center
  2. affiliation with Harvard Business School
  3. affiliation with Harvard University
  4. alumni families
  5. families in the Allston/ Brighton community
  6. families in the broader community.

A completed application form and $30 application fee are required in order to be considered for enrollment. Applications can be submitted at any time, but enrollment is generally offered for late August/September.  Upon contracting for first-time enrollment, one month’s tuition is required to secure the child’s space in the class.

We typically receive more applications than we have slots available, particularly in the infant program. If we are not able to offer you enrollment in the year when you submit your application, you will be placed on a waiting list and we will notify you as soon as a slot becomes available.

We have moved to an online application, which is available here. Please note that our new online application is designed as a convenience for families. The online application system 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.

Your application will not be considered complete until we have received your online application and the application fee of $30. Once you have completed the online application, please mail the application fee to: SFPCC, 1 Soldiers Field Park, Box 101, Boston, MA, 02163. Please be sure to put your child’s name on the check.

SFPCC enrolls 80 children on a full time or part time basis. All children are enrolled 5 days a week, with part-time slots reflecting a part-day option (8 am – 1 pm or 8 am – 3 pm).
