NOTICE - Childcare at TriCon 2018
TriCon 2018 has enlisted the services of BrightStar Care out of Baraboo WI, a nationwide home care and medical staffing agency that also provides childcare, to provide childcare on site at the Wilderness Resort just for the evenings of May 4th and May 5th from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm. BrightStar is a fully licensed, Joint Commission accredited organization that provides screened, certified and/or licensed providers for individuals from age newborn to end of life. Please visit https://www.brightstarcare.com for more information about BrightStar and their exceptional care teams.
BrightStar will provide up to 8 caregivers for the event, but as you can see below, the ratio of caregivers to children will depend on the age of the children. Parents must complete the Childcare Services Assessment (Available Here) for EACH child that would require care and return to:
Barb Senn, Conference Chair
N7478 Niagara Lane
Fond du Lac WI 54937
Deadline to return the Childcare Services Assessment to Barb (for BrightStar) is April 16,. Childcare services will be provided at the conference center on a first-come, first-served basis, up to a maximum of eight caregivers (also based on ratio of children to caregivers). Assessment forms will be reviewed by BrightStar to determine all specific childcare needs and must be submitted no less than two weeks prior to the event.
The child to caregiver ratio would be as follows:
· Babies (up to 1 year of age) would be 1:1
· Toddlers (not potty trained) would be 2:1
· Toddlers and children up to age 7 would be 3:1
· Children age 7 to 12 years is a 6:1 ratio
BrightStar charges $27/hour per caregiver, but TriCon will cover ½ cost.
As a service to our Rotarian attendees, TriCon will help to subsidize the cost of your childcare. Cost to parent is listed below and will be charged to your TriCon registration:
· For babies up to one year – cost is $13.50/hour, based on 1:1 ratio
· For toddlers (not potty trained) – cost is $6.75/hour, based on 2:1 ratio
· For toddlers and children up to 7 years – cost is $4.50/hour, based on 3:1 ratio
· Children age 7 to 12 – cost is $2.25/hour, based on a 6:1 ratio
If you would like to secure childcare for one or more of your children on the evening of May 4 or May 5 at TriCon 2018, please complete the Childcare Services Assessment (one per child) and return to Barb Senn no later than April 16. Questions, please contact Barb at email@example.com
