Childcare services will be available from June 12 to June 21, 2024 from 8:00 to 17:00 each day during Congress 2024.  Space is limited and online registration is required.  

Drop-in childcare services are not available during Congress 2024. Please note that attendees are required to remain on campus while their children are being minded.

Daily routine  

We want every child to feel comfortable and safe; therefore, we offer a flexible program to meet their individual needs with open snack and free play with a variety of activities throughout the day. Children can take part in exploring both indoors and outdoors. The McGill outdoor campus offers many things to see and explore. Children will have the opportunity to join in art activities, make play dough, or play in our play kitchen. We have many fun-filled activities based on your child’s age to fill the day.

We will offer a comfortable, cozy place for your children to rest should they need to. We provide blankets and sheets if needed, and we also welcome special blankets from home. Should your child require diapers, we ask that you bring enough diapers and wipes to supply them for the time they are in our care. A change of clothing is also highly recommended in case your child needs to change during their stay with us.  Light morning, afternoon snacks and lunch for children signed up for full days may be offered at an additional cost.
