Who is KiddieCorp?
KiddieCorp is an organization that has been providing
high quality programs to children of all ages at conventions, trade

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 Sunday - Wednesday, January 6 - 9, 2008. The dates
and times for the program are January 6 - 9, 2009, 8:00 a.m.

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 $30 per family (nonrefundable).
Additional cost will be $9 per hour per child or $7 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 who subsidize this service
and pay most of the cost making this program affordable.
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 9, 2007 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. (Registration for the JMM begins on September 3, 2007.)
Again, space is limited, so registrations are only guaranteed if
received by KiddieCorp by the pre-registration deadline of December
9, 2007. 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.
