Child Care Services

ASA continues its long tradition of providing an on-site program of activities for children of Annual Meeting registrants. Arrangements have again been made with KimberLee Care to offer a full child care program for children between the ages of 6 months to 12 years during the following time intervals.

  • Saturday, August 12 from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm
  • Sunday, August 13 from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm
  • Monday August 14 from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm
  • Tuesday, August 15 from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm

The Child Care Service will be located in the Palais des Congres de Montreal. Families wishing to enroll their children in the child care program must preregister for the Annual Meeting and submit payment for the services in full by July 11, 2017. The fees for the child care program are $55 USD per child, per day or $35 USD per child, per half day (defined as five hours or less). After preregistration and payment is received, you will be contacted to submit your child's information and expected schedule. Child care program enrollment will be added to preregistration on May 1, 2017.

Care Grants

Financial assistance is available to offset the cost of using the Child Care Service for children of unemployed, low-income (as defined by membership category) or student members. To apply for a grant, please submit a letter identifying your membership status and email or fax it to ASA Meeting Services, fax: (202) 638-0882. The deadline to apply for a grant is July 14, 2017. The available grant pool will be split among qualified applicants. Successful applicants will be notified the following week.

Space for Non-Preregistrants

It is unlikely that non-preregistered families can be accommodated on-site. The service staffing is contracted based on the number and age of preregistered children, and on-site adjustments are limited.
