Access to child care
If you plan to travel to Melbourne with your child and require access to child care during conference hours, you can visit mychild.gov.au to find more about the different care options available for you with a service provider. At least two nearby childcare providers offer casual places. The first is Little Assets: Melbourne City Early Learning Centre. Their contact details are 03 9620 2887. The centre is located at Level 3, Tower 4, 18-38 Siddeley St, Melbourne. Centre Director Anjali recommended getting in touch about 4 weeks out from the conference to discuss availability. The other is Only About Children, which can be reached on 038529 5000. This organisation has two nearby centres, one at Southbank, and the other in South Melbourne. Please contact the service provider directly to discuss placement options, we are unable to secure or negotiate places on your behalf.
We welcome babies at the conference and breastfeeding is welcome anywhere in the conference. On Level 1 (accessible via lift) there is a kitchenette with fridge space, a microwave and hot water available for bottle preparation and storage. A space will be available for baby care needs including feeding and changing. Please let us know if you need access to this by contacting us directly.
