Child Care

On-site childcare for the NAISA annual meeting will be provided by KiddieCorp. KiddieCorp has been providing childcare since 1986. Their goal is to provide your children with a comfortable, safe, and happy experience. Their staffing will be based on these staff-to-child ratios:

1:2 ratio for children 6 months through 11 months old

1:3 ratio for children 1 through 2 years old

1:5 ratio for children 3 through 5 years old

1:7 ratio for children 6 through 12 years old

KiddieCorp will provide age-appropriate toys and games, different arts and crafts projects for each day, and children’s movies and cartoon videos. They will provide morning and afternoon snacks, so parents will be responsible for providing breakfast, lunch, and dinner for their children. Written hourly infant/toddler reports will also be given to parents.

The hourly rate per child is $12. Services will be available May 29th-31st from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM. If you have further questions, please contact Lakota Pochedley ( or check out KiddieCorp’s website (
