Parent - Child Room

There will be a parent-child room available on the day. This is not a crèche and any attendee bringing a child to the meeting must remain with their child at all times. The parent-child room will be a lecture breakaway space for those unable to find childcare but who still wish to attend the meeting. We appreciate that small children may need time away from the lectures and workshops and the parent-child room is designed to allow for this without you missing any content. The interactive afternoon workshops will not be live-streamed but the parent-child room will remain available.

There is also a breastfeeding room available for attendees needing a quieter space.

WICM recognises that the nature of conferences must change to allow for the mobility of parents. It is our aim to provide fuller childcare facilities at future WICM events and we hope the success of this event will allow us to do so.

The parent-child room will have:

  • Seating and a live stream of the lectures
  • Toys for ages 2 and under (the toys will have been professionally sterilised beforehand)
  • 3 small play mats and some soft furnishings

Attendees will be expected to bring; changing, food and medical supplies for their child as needed. 

All attendees intending to use the parent-child room must contact Lucy Rowan lrowan@ficm.ac.uk to confirm they wish to use the facilities.
