Childcare

  • contact:  childcare@wiscon.net
  • Deadline to register:  May 15
Because kids under 5 are not allowed at WisCon this year, we’re combining Childcare and Kids’ Programming. Childcare & Kids’ Programming are open to all pre-registered children 5-12 who are vaccinated. Either a Childcare membership (for ages 5-6) or a Youth membership (for ages 7-12) is required for a child to receive babysitting.

  • Childcare and Kids’ Programming will be open to all kids ages 5 and over who are vaccinated (and may be accompanied by their parents/guardians).
  • The first time you drop off your child, please leave yourself a little extra time to fill out our contact sheet. Parents/guardians must sign their children in and out.
  • In compliance with our COVID-19 policy, all children, parents/guardians, and caregivers must remain masked in the Childcare space.
  • Childcare will offer unstructured babysitting during the following hours (updated May 6, 2022, to better reflect our programming schedule):
    • Friday (5/27) 8:30-11:45 am and 12:45-6pm
    • Saturday (5/28) 9:30-11:45 am and 12:45-6pm
    • Sunday (5/29) 9:30-11:45 am and 12:45-6pm
    • Monday (5/30) 9:30-11:45am
  • You MUST pick up your child by closing time and prior to the lunch break (there is no childcare available between 11:45am and 12:45pm). You will be charged a late fee of $10 per child for each 15 minutes you are late.
  • Kids’ Programming will offer several structured activities throughout the weekend which will take place in the Childcare space. Teens are also welcome to attend during those times!
