Childcare Services

During the SOT 59th Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, registrants are allowed to bring children under full parental/guardian control into the Scientific Sessions and the ToxExpo Exhibit Hall. For more on the SOT child policy, visit the “Annual Meeting Policies” web page.

SOT Childcare Program

SOT has contracted with KiddieCorp, a premier provider of children’s program services during events, to offer childcare during the 59th Annual Meeting and ToxExpo. The childcare program will be located at the Anaheim Marriott and will provide care for children aged six months through 12 years.

This program is intended for the children of registered attendees, to help maximize the meeting experience for those registrants traveling with their families. The cost to participate in the childcare program is $12.00 per hour per child, and each child must be enrolled for a minimum of two consecutive hours on each day the child will participate in the program.

The advance enrollment deadline to participate in the childcare program is January 10, 2020. You are encouraged to enroll early, as availability is limited and handled on a first-come, first-served basis. KiddieCorp must receive both an Enrollment Form and payment in full to hold reservations. To enroll, please use the online Enrollment and Payment System or return the Enrollment Form PDF to KiddieCorp. See the online or PDF Enrollment Form for more information about the childcare program and KiddieCorp’s services.
