Childcare at Socialism 2017

The annual Socialism Conference offers free, on-site childcare for children aged 6 months to 13 years to all conference attendees who purchase a conference ticket and inform us of their childcare needs by the childcare registration deadline. We make this a priority so that all parents can attend and fully participate in the conference knowing their children are enjoying themselves as well. Childcare staff offer a range of engaging and fun activities for children of all ages.

You can register for childcare at the same time as you register for the conference. During registration you will be asked to note whether you will need childcare during the course of the conference, how many children you will need it for and on which days, as well as information about them (their names, ages, and any special needs). Please note the conference schedule above and monitor it for any updates. While we offer free childcare during the course of each day’s sessions, we do not offer it in the evenings after conference sessions have concluded.

Offering professional, on-site childcare for a four-day conference of 1,500 people is an enormous undertaking for a project of our size. To support our operation, we ask all conference attendees who can to contribute a donation to help fund the operation. We also ask that anyone who uses post-session, evening childcare on nights it is offered to contribute extra to the fund.

The deadline for childcare this year is midnight (CST) on Monday, June 5. Because we need adequate time to coordinate childcare and determine how many staff members we’ll need, we will not be able to accept any requests for childcare after this deadline. We will not consider any exceptions to this policy.
