Thank you very much for your interest in the Game Developers Conference children’s program. Our goal is to provide your children with a program they want to attend, while providing you with that critical “peace of mind” feeling so you can attend your event activities.
KiddieCorp is pleased to provide a children’s program during the 2023 Game Developers Conference. KiddieCorp is in its thirty-seventh year of providing high-quality children’s programs and youth services to conventions, trade shows, and special events. We take caring for your children very seriously. KiddieCorp has enjoyed a long-time partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, which has helped to establish KiddieCorp as a premier provider of event children’s program services.
Activities include exciting themes, arts & crafts, group games, music & movement, board games, story time, dramatic play, etc. We provide actvities appropriate for each age group, using safe and sturdy equipment. Children can make their own choices within KiddieCorp's program.
Our goal is to provide your children with a comfortable, safe, and happy experience. Our staff to child ratios are high to ensure that every child feels special (1:2 for children ages 6 months through 11 months old; 1:3 for children ages 1 through 2 years old; 1:5 for children ages 3 through 5 years old; 1:7 for children ages 6 through 12 years old). KiddieCorp team members are selected according to their integrity, experience, education, and enthusiasm. They must be wonderful with kids! In addition to our selective and competitive hiring process, KiddieCorp remains at the top of the industry by carrying ample liability insurance.
