GDC attendees with children, take note: Game Developers Conference organizers are proud to continue their partnership with leading childcare provider KiddieCorp to offer GDC 2017 attendees access to an on-site children's program. However, the advance deadline to register for the program is January 30th -- just weeks away!
You want to register early, because registration is handled on a first-come, first-served basis. It's also possible to register on-site, but there is no guarantee KiddieCorp will be able to accommodate on-site registrations and doing so is not recommended.
Back by popular demand, the KiddieCorp children's program is for children ages 6 months through 12 years old and will be located within the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. The KiddieCorp team charges an affordable hourly rate for their services and snacks and beverages will be provided, but meals do need to be supplied by parents each day.
Plus, the KiddieCorp team will engage your children with activities they want to attend, providing you with that critical peace of mind so you can attend your sessions and events worry-free. Activities include exciting themes, arts & crafts, group games, music & movement, board games, story time, dramatic play, etc. KiddieCorp provides actvities appropriate for each age group, using safe and sturdy equipment. Children can make their own choices within KiddieCorp's program.
To learn more about the service and register your child as a participant, head over to the KiddieCorp GDC 2017 children's program registration page. Again, make sure to register early as availability is limited and handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
This partnership is just one of many ongoing GDC efforts aimed at encouraging a broader variety of game industry professionals to attend and speak at the conference.
Also, don't miss your opportunity to save money by registering early -- the deadline to register for passes at a discounted rate is January 18, 2017. GDC 2017 itself will take place February 27th - March 3rd at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
