AEJMC Childcare

There will be supervised on-site childcare at the AEJMC Conference.
AEJMC is excited to partner with KiddieCorp, as it previously did in 2018, to provide subsidized on-site childcare services to parents, families, and caregivers during its annual conference.

As part of the recent policy to create a caregiver and child-friendly culture, the organization is grateful to be able to provide this benefit to members to help make the conference more inclusive.

KiddieCorp will be hosting this program for members and their children during the conference. With thirty-eight years of experience, KiddieCorp has been a trusted provider of high-quality children's programs and youth services for conventions, trade shows, and special events.

KiddieCorp has solidified its position as a leading provider of children’s program services through its endorsement and longstanding partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics.
