Assistance to help defray half the cost (up to $250 of support) for childcare during the MPSA Annual Conference is offered to attendees who are current members of the MPSA (with an annual income below $75,000) and who are staying at the Palmer House or Hilton Chicago. The application deadline is March 15.
One company that the Palmer House has referred guests to for years is American Child Care
. The rates for a family are $21 per hour with a four-hour minimum and a $25 agency fee. They accept reservations online and caution that reservations for childcare during the day should be made at least two weeks in advance. Information about their staff and security norms are on their website.
