For your convenience, the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America will again offer childcare services to registered participants. They make this program available and affordable by subsidizing this service and paying most of the cost. This gives you the opportunity to leave your child(ren) with professionals who are solely dedicated to making them safe and happy. Attend sessions with peace of mind knowing your child(ren) are having fun with other children in a safe environment provided by one of the most successful children programs in the country.
These services will again be offered through the KiddieCorp Children's Program.
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 about them at www. kiddiecorp.com/.
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.

The registration fee is US$30 per family (nonrefundable). Additional cost will be US$14 per hour per child or US$10 per hour per child for graduate students. These reduced child care rates are made possible to the meetings participant by the MAA and the AMS, who heavily subsidize the cost of this service, thus keeping this program affordable for families.
