Child Care Information

While you are attending the Ocean Sciences Meeting, your children can enjoy their own convention camp organized by ACCENT on Children’s Arrangements, Inc., a national company specializing in children’s activities. ACCENT has a proven record within this scientific community, having provided child care services during previous society meetings. The program provides complete morning-to-early-evening entertainment packed with activities for children ages six months to 12 years. Children will participate in age-appropriate activities, including arts and crafts projects and active games in a safe, nurturing, and educational environment. The high ratio of caregiver to child (1:2 for children six to 12 months; 1:3 for children 13 months to two years; 1:5 for children three to five years; and 1:8 for children six to 12 years) ensures that campers receive personal attention.

Arrangements need to be made on an individual basis through ACCENT on Arrangements, Inc. by completing the registration form online at http://www.accentregister.com/register/osm12. You also can call ACCENT on Children’s Arrangements at 504-524-0188 or email: registration@accentoca.com.

The meeting organizers assume no responsibility or liability for services rendered.

The meeting sponsors support parents and understand it is difficult and expensive to make daycare arrangements. A portion of the daycare costs is being subsidized by the conference. ASLO also offers daycare grants to parents who are members of ASLO. Please complete the on-line or downloadable form. ASLO will notify you following the acceptance of abstracts if you will receive a grant.
