We have put together some activities to keep your little ones occupied while you attend the meeting.
We partner with a professional childcare organisation to provide the tiniest RIPE Meeting attendees with a fun-filled week while their parents are fully engaged in the meeting. Qualified childminders set up a safe and fun childcare room with a variety of activities and develop a programme for the kids that changes daily.
Childcare is available for children of ages from 6 months to 10 years. Please make sure to notify us of your childcare needs before 5 May 2024.
RIPE 88 Childcare includes:
A safe, secure daycare facility run by a professional childcare provider at the meeting location
- Available from Monday – Thursday between 8:30-12:30 and 13:30-19:00 and Friday 8:30 – 12:30
- Highly-trained childcare staff
- Age appropriate toys, arts and crafts, sports, games, etc.
- Tailored activity programmes that change daily
- Optional in-room babysitting in the evenings
For safety reasons children must not enter the meeting area.
If you want to register for childcare but have already registered to attend RIPE 88, please email meeting [at] ripe [dot] net and we will check the availability and notify you accordingly.
