About KiddieCorp

KiddieCorp has been providing high-quality programs to children of all ages at conventions, trade shows, and corporate events throughout the United States and Canada since 1986. KiddieCorp assisted the American Academy of Pediatrics in adapting their requirements for healthy play, a healthy environment, and the nurturing of children into the only written convention child care guidelines that exist. KiddieCorp continues to follow and fine-tune those guidelines. Read all about KiddieCorp.

KiddieCorp staff-to-child ratios are high to ensure that every child feels special (1:2 for 6–11 months; 1:3 for children ages 1–2 yrs.; 1:5 for children ages 3–5 yrs.; 1:7 for children 6–12 yrs.). KiddieCorp team members are selected according to their experience, education, and enthusiasm. They must be wonderful with kids!

Activity planning is based around the program hours and ages of children. Activities include exciting themes, arts & crafts, group games, music & movement, board games, story time, dramatic play, etc. Children can make their own choices within the KiddieCorp program.

Registration and Cost

The cost is US$7 per hour per child with a consecutive 2-hour minimum per child. Child care is available for children 6 months to 12 years old and at least one parent must be registered for the GSA Annual Meeting. The program has minimum and maximum requirements, so we encourage you to register early! GSA is proud to make this program available and affordable by subsidizing this service and paying most of the cost.

Cancellations must be made to KiddieCorp prior to 1 October for a full refund. Cancellations made after that date are subject to a 50% cancellation fee. Once the program has begun, no refunds will be issued.

Note: If parents do not pick up their children at the time scheduled or by the end of the day (no later than the posted hours), they will be charged a late fee of US$5 per child for every 5 minutes thereafter.
