Child Care

While planning on how much fun you'll have at con this year, what with dancing, panels, gaming and parties, don't forget about the kids! Go ahead and bring them along! Orycon 27 will be providing professional childcare during the convention to both watch and entertain your children.

Hours of operation:

Friday 5pm to 11pm

Saturday 9am to 11pm, with breaks at 12 – 12:30pm & 6 – 6:30pm

Sunday 9am to 3pm

Childcare will be provided by professional adult nannies. The parent or legal guardian must sign a medical waiver so that the nanny can release the child for emergency medical care in the event of an emergency and the parents can't be located in a timely fashion. We also require a liability waiver. Both forms will be available at check in. Scrip will be available at the office at the rate of $5 per hour or 5 hours for $20. For security purposes the room number will only be given to scrip purchasing convention members at the office.

Low allergy healthy snacks, safe toys, G-rated videos, games and arts and crafts are profusely available. We plan on having beds and a playpen for naps in a separate room from the play area, in case your child needs quiet time. The kids always have a lot of fun. We don't have any spare diapers so please leave all the necessary supplies for infants and toddlers in training pants. Pajamas might be a good idea if the child is staying late. Hot meals, medication and special nutritional needs are the responsibility of the parents. Please alert the nannies of any allergies.

If you know what times you want to use this service, let me know and we can make arrangements. Otherwise this service is provided on a first come, first served basis. The nannies are legally allowed to take only a certain number of kids (total number is age dependent) at a time. A $10 surcharge will be applied for late pickup.
