UPDATE: Kid Con registration is now closed.
Each year, Type-A has (and will) offer high-quality and affordable childcare for attendees through Kid Con. Kid Con is a mini conference just for the children of attendees, featuring experienced caregivers, fun activities (OK, the agenda isn’t quite as rigid as the grown up one), meals and snacks, and their own gift bag. In the past, activities have included everything from Kindermusik and eco-friendly crafts to talent shows and drum lessons. Special thanks to Boy Scouts of America for being a Kid Con sponsor.
The pricing for this year’s Kid Con is $30 per day, per child for full-time (5-9 hours) and $15 per day, per child for part-time (4 hours or less). This cost is heavily subsidized by conference sponsors, and the number of spots is very limited.
You must already be a registered attendee to register your children for Kid Con. The hours are from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Evening childcare in-room is also available ($12 per hour first child, $7 per hour for siblings).
Childcare will be provided for the second year in a row by Elegant Event Sitters. You can follow the owner, Tish, on Twitter at @eventsitters. She will also be tweeting updates about Kid Con during the conference and can also DM parents updates about their children during Kid Con.
