Sitters Studio, a licensed childcare service, will be providing childcare for our conference. Sitters Studio has hosted Kids Camp at some of our other Earicles conferences, including NYMAC 2015 and NYMAC 2017.
Earicles will provide childcare for 2 children, per family, age 2 years and up, during the Saturday morning conference lectures. Each additional child is an additional $50 fee, payable during online registration. Please note that the Earicles is still subsidizing a portion of the childcare despite this addition fee. Children are NOT encouraged to attend the conference lectures out of respect to other conference attendees.
For children under 2 year of age, families can book individual childcare service through the childcare provider that is providing childcare for our event. The child can also participate in Kids Camp activities with the group but with individualized attention. To book this childcare service, at a reduced rate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and mention that you are with the Earicles conference. It is to our understanding that the rate would be $25/hour for 4 hour minimum for 1-2 siblings, but please contact them directly for details.
All children must be pre-registered for Kids Camp! We cannot stress this enough! This includes the child with microtia AND any siblings. Please register each child during the online Registration process, including name(s), age(s), and any allergies.
