ARE CHILDCARE SERVICES AVAILABLE DURING REUNION?

Yes. Lemberg Children’s Center is happy to arrange childcare for parents who wish to have a sitter in their hotel or on-campus housing. The sitters are students, many of whom work at Lemberg Children’s Center. Though the arrangements are made privately between the caregiver and the parent, Lemberg Children’s Center will coordinate connecting parents with a sitter. Hotel room childcare arrangements must be made by May 12 to ensure a sitter. We cannot guarantee sitters after this date.
