KiddieCorp Children's Program

Who is KiddieCorp?

KiddieCorp is an organization that 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. It has enjoyed a long-time partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, which has helped to establish KiddieCorp as a premier provider of event children's program services. Read all about them here.


KiddieCorp's goal is to provide your children with a comfortable, safe and happy experience. Their staff to child ratios are high to ensure that every child feels special (1:2 infants; 1:3 toddlers; 1:5 school age). KiddieCorp team members are selected according to their integrity, experience, education and enthusiasm. They must be wonderful with kids! You will feel secure knowing that the KiddieCorp team is bonded and that they carry ample liability insurance.


All 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. KiddieCorp provides activities appropriate for each age group, using safe, sturdy equipment that you can feel comfortable with. Children can make their own choices with KiddieCorp's program.

Where, When, For Whom

This program is for children ages 6 months through 12 years old. Space per day will be limited. The dates of the meeting are Thursday - Sunday, January 12 - 15, 2006. The dates and times for the program are January 12- 15, 2006, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. It will be located at the Hilton Palacio del Rio in San Antonio, TX. If you would like to know how many children will be in the same age group as your child's, please call KiddieCorp.

Parents are encouraged to bring snacks and beverages for their children but items such as juice boxes, cheerios, and crackers will be provided. KiddieCorp can arrange meals for children at cost plus 15% or parents can be responsible for meals for their children. Parents who have questions about specific programs that will be offered or specific requests, rules, or needs for their children must call KiddieCorp ahead of time.


The registration fee is $25 per family (nonrefundable). Additional cost will be $8 per hour per child or $6 per hour per child for graduate students. Parents must be registered for the JMM to participate. These reduced child care rates are made possible to the meeting participant by the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America.

If parents do not pick up their children on time as scheduled or at the end of the day if scheduled (no later than 5:00 pm), they will be charged a late fee of $5.00 per child for every 15 minutes thereafter.

Cancellations must be made to KiddieCorp prior to December 22, 2005 for a full refund. Cancellations made after that date will be subject to a 50% cancellation fee. Once the program has begun, no refunds will be issued.


To register, go to https://www.kiddiecorp.com/jmmkids.htm or call KiddieCorp at 858-455-1718 to request a form. Parents must also be registered for the JMM to register for this service. Again, space is limited, so registrations are only guaranteed if received by KiddieCorp by the pre-registration deadline of December 22, 2005----extended to January 5, 2006. KiddieCorp must receive both the registration and consent form with payment in full to hold reservations. Although every effort will be made to accommodate late or on-site registrations, there is no guarantee that KiddieCorp will accept children unless they are pre-registered. Late or on-site registrations will be accepted based on space availability only. Parents who are not signed up but require daycare services at the meeting, should inquire about availability at the Registration Desk.

KiddieCorp accepts credit cards, checks and money orders only. (Cash will be accepted on-site if space is available.)

KiddieCorp and the JMM reserve the right to limit participation of children whose presence or behavior may disrupt KiddieCorp's program or endanger the health or safety of others.
