Child Care Service
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 KiddieCorp to offer a full child care program from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm on August 16-18 and 8:00 am to 4:30 pm on August 19 for children between the ages of 6 months to 12 years. The Child Care Service will be located at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square for the 2014 Annual Meeting.
Staffing is based on a 1:2 ratio for children 6 months to 1 year, 1:3 ratios for children 1-2 years of age and a 1:5 ratio for children 3-12 years of age. The program includes a customized hourly schedule of creative and educational activities, age-appropriate toys and games, popular arts and crafts projects, and child-pleasing movies and cartoon videos.
Families intending to use the ASA Child Care Service must preregister before July 9. The non-refundable preregistration deposit is $50 per child. The deposit will be applied toward the on-site daily usage fees, which are $50 full-day and $30 half-day for preregistrants.
Several financial assistance scholarships are available to provide reduced daily usage fees for children of unemployed or low-income members/students. To apply for a scholarship, write a letter identifying your membership status and requesting a child care scholarship and attach the confirmation of your meeting registration and send it to:
ASA Meeting Services, 1430 K St. NW, Suite 600, Washington, DC 20005
firstname.lastname@example.org; fax: (202) 638-0882
Be sure to fill out the Child Care Registration portion of the form, provide daily usage estimates, and remit the basic child care preregistration deposit.
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. If there are any openings, fees for children who were not preregistered will be $75 per day per child. No exceptions.
