We understand that many parents face the challenge of finding reliable and affordable childcare while attending professional events. That is why we are excited to announce that CppNorth will provide childcare for parents if childcare is required to enable them to attend the conference. This service is available for children aged 0 to 14 and will be at the conference venue. You can register your child online when you sign up for the conference. Our qualified and experienced staff will make sure your child has a great and safe time while you learn, network and discover what is new in the C++ community. CppNorth hopes this initiative will make the conference more accessible and inclusive for parents.

Childcare will be at the conference venue, so you may check on your kids as often as you would like. You will also get regular updates on your kids' activities through messages.

Our childcare staff includes at least one certified first aid and CPR provider and volunteers. The number of staff depends on the number of kids and their age.

Lunch is not included. There are kid-friendly restaurants in the neighbourhood. We can help you order food for kids as well. Snacks are, however, available (fruits, vegetables, cookies, milk, water, and Juice).
