OryCon 39 will be providing professional childcare to watch over your children during the convention. Hours will be posted soon.
Childcare will be provided by professional adult nannies. The parent or legal guardian must sign a medical waiver so that the nanny can release the child for emergency medical care in the event of an emergency and the parents cannot be located in a timely fashion. We also require a liability waiver. Both forms will be available at check in. Scrip will be available at the rate of $5 per hour or 5 hours for $20. For security purposes the room number will only be given to scrip purchasing convention members at the Ops office.
Low allergy healthy snacks, safe toys, G-rated videos, games and arts and crafts will be available. We plan on having beds and a playpen for naps in a separate room from the play area, in case your child needs quiet time. The kids always have a lot of fun. We do not have any spare diapers so please leave all the necessary supplies for infants and toddlers in training pants. Pajamas might be a good idea if the child is staying late. Hot meals, bottle or spoon feeding snacks, medication and special nutritional needs, are the responsibility of the parents. Please alert the nannies of any allergies.
This service is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. The nannies are legally allowed to take only a certain number of kids (total number is age dependent) at a time. A $10 surcharge will be applied for late pickup.
All children must be registered with the convention, and all children purchasing memberships must be accompanied by an adult.
- Children ages 5 and under are admitted to the convention without charge and will be issued a badge that must be kept with the child (or a nearby diaper bag, for example) rather than with one of the parents. The child must be under the supervision of an adult, or in the official Child Care Area, at all times. If a young child is found unattended, he or she will be delivered to the Child Care Area and the responsible adult(s) will be billed.
- Children ages 6-12 are admitted at half the adult price. Children over the age of 10 may operate independently as long as they cause no problems. Those not capable of operating responsibly on their own must be kept under adult supervision or taken to the official Child Care Area. Children 6-10 need to be under the supervision of someone age 16 and up.
- All children 12 or under must be under direct adult supervision after 8 PM. Children 8 and over may work as convention volunteers, but those ages 8-11 may do so for no more than 4 hours per day. Those ages 12-16 may do so for no more than 6 hours per day.
