Schedule at a Glance: Child Care at Convention

by Carla McQuillan

Children between the ages of six weeks and twelve years are invited to attend child care during convention sessions this summer. The children will be divided into groups by age, with appropriate toys, games, and activities available to each. Child care is staffed by qualified, experienced teachers, including Michelle Chicon, a certified teacher of blind children.

Child care will be open during all general sessions of the national convention; the NOPBC Conference on Thursday, June 30; and Division Meeting Day on July 2. It will also be open during the convention banquet on Tuesday, July 5. Child care is closed on Friday, July 1.

Throughout the day, the preschool and elementary-school children in child care will engage in a variety of activities. Additional activities this year will include hikes to the on-site fishing lake. There will be a blind fisherman to help the children learn to fish using alternative techniques. This hotel also has large grassy areas for water play and field games.

The registration deadline is June 15, or as space is available. See you in Orlando!

* Important: All NOPBC children’s activities take place in NFB Child Care. To take part in the NOPBC children’s activities, your child must be registered with NFB Child Care for that day.
