Child Care Information  

While you are attending the 2013 ASLO Aquatic Sciences Meeting, your children can enjoy their own convention camp organized by ACCENT on Children’s Arrangements, Inc., a national company specializing in children’s activities.  Daycare service will be available during the meeting, 0730 to 1830 (7:30 am to 6:30 pm), Monday, 18 February, through Friday, 22 February. This is a complete morning to early evening entertainment program packed with activities for children ages six months to 12 years. Children will participate in age-appropriate activities, including arts and crafts projects and active games in a safe, nurturing, and educational environment. The high ratio of caregiver to child (1:2 for children six to 12 months; 1:3 for children 13 months to two years; 1:5 for children three to five years; and 1:8 for children six to 12 years) ensures that campers receive lots of personal attention.

Program costs include morning and afternoon snacks and juice, entertainment, and craft materials. Lunch is not included. However, a lunch can be purchased when registering, or parents can send or bring a lunch to their child.

Arrangements for child care need to be made on an individual basis through ACCENT on Arrangements, Inc. by completing the registration form online at http://www.accentregister.com/events/ch_events.asp?eId=6365

The deadline for advance child care registration is 8 February 2013. After this date, rates are subject to increase, so please register early. ASLO assumes no responsibility or liability for services rendered.

Child Care Grants

ASLO has made a commitment to support those parents with young children and will subsidize a large portion of the care.  There are a limited number of child care grants available.  Please complete and submit the Child Care Grant Request Form.  Once submitted, you will be contacted by email for additional information.  If you do not receive funding, you will be asked to pay ACCENT directly for any additional costs.
