We have obtained a quote from a specialist firm, Crechendo, to run a crèche on campus from 9am to 5pm for the duration of the conference. The crèche will be in a room upstairs in the same building as the plenary sessions will be held and next door to where the contributed talks will be held and catering will be provided.
Parents will be required to look after their child during the lunch break and to be able to be contacted by phone at all times, including to change children’s nappies. All activities will be provided but parents are asked to provide their children with snacks for morning and afternoon tea and bottles of formula if required.
The cost will be $800 per child for the whole conference. Due to the fixed costs involved, we can only provide this service for the whole conference and cannot charge by the day. Parents who wish to use this service must have registered and paid for the service by Friday June 15. We will let you know when this is done. We will need at least five children to take up places for us to run this service. If we are not able to run the crèche, we will refund any fees and suggest alternative services.
