Facilities & Activities

Childcare takes place on the Conference Center campus in the main building on the upper floor as well as in appropriate outside play areas.  All faculty sessions take place in the Conference Center as well, so parents have easy access to children in case of an emergency.   

Children are supervised at all times.  During the sessions, children enjoy games, crafts, story times, and other age-appropriate activities. Cribs, walkers and other equipment for infants are not provided.  If you bring a child between the ages of newborn and three, please bring these items to assist in providing the most comfortable environment possible for your child. 

Please bring your children to the childcare area at the times listed above and return to pick them up promptly following the close of each session.
