State of the Map US is proud to announce that we will be offering childcare for the very first time ever! TAG IT! Because this State of the Map will be the most accessible OpenStreetMap conference ever regardless of age. Space is limited so be sure to register and sign up for childcare now! Also note if you are considering proposing a talk, Sunday (22nd) is your last opportunity to do so.
Childcare staff will will be provided by The Baby Sitters Guild of New York City. This guild of certified sitters have been providing trustworthy, tender, and conscientious care for babies and children since 1940 and are ready to bring all that experience to your little loved ones at the United Nations for State of the Map US. Specifically all caregivers are:
I am now going to do a rundown of the childcare activities but do not get jealous! Adults will be having a ton of fun and learning experiences at the conference proper. We might also bring Play-doh. Though I won't deny that a round of Catch the Balloon sounds real tempting. The child care arena will be decked with:
Lunch will be provided and a high staff ratio has been arranged. In other words, it will be awesome to be a kid and an adult at State of the Map US! All are welcome.
