We offer free childcare for the duration of the SRCCON program and welcome families of all sizes.
Childcare and Caretaking
We are offering free childcare throughout the full SRCCON schedule (including Thursday evening). Our providers are the wonderful KiddieCorp team, whom we welcome back for their fifth year at SRCCON.
For the first time this year, we’re also offering one scholarship of $500 for caretaking-related costs. (Either to bring your loved ones to Minneapolis, or help care for them back home while you’re at the conference.) There is a question on the call for participation form to apply for this scholarship.
Our Care Providers
Staff-to-child ratios range from 1:2 for children 6-11 months to 1:7 for children aged 6-12 years, and KiddieCorp will work with SRCCON organizers to handle registration and logistics so your kid(s) can have a great time while you’re conferencing. All caregivers act as employees of KiddieCorp (not contractors) and are recruited from local licensed daycare centers, elementary schools, preschools, and collegiate departments of early childhood education.
Two of our own staff members have had their young children happily in KiddieCorp’s care during prior SRCCONS, and we were all impressed by the thoughtfulness they brought to every aspect of their services.
Childcare will take place at a hotel very close to the conference venue. If you’re interested in childcare, please tell us on the call for participation form. You can learn more about KiddieCorp’s staffing and security procedures.
If you’ve already purchased your SRCCON ticket and you know you are planning to use our childcare program, you can register today by filling out this form. The registration deadline is June 13, 2019. Register early as availability is limited and handled on a first-come, first-served basis. KiddieCorp must receive the registration form to hold any advance reservations.
