info for geeky #parents
attending and carting their #children
along from afar, like we do.
The I/O #daycare
was fantastic last year and I hope it's the same this year - we had never left ours with anyone before (under 2) and it was very well set up and convenient and safe. And.it.was.free.as.part.of.the.conference.
They have an excellent ratio of caregivers to kids, feed them well and they even get their own "shwag", which was downright adorable.
They separated the little ones (still napping/toddlers) from the older ones with different activity areas. (FYI - last year mine was still nursing part time and it was a 2 block walk to the conference, not hard).
They had very good time coverage to attend anything at IO you wanted to. Long hours.
No complaints at all. If it enables you to maximize your conference time, use it. I hope they continue providing such excellence this year.
