Know Your Children are Safe, Entertained, and Close By

Our Child Minding Program will be managed by certified Early Childhood Educator (ECE) Professionals, who are governed in British Columbia by the rules and regulations set forth under the Ministry of Children and Family Development.

Child Minding Services will be provided at one of the properties in our official hotel block, located in direct proximity of the Vancouver Convention Center. [Exact hotel location will be disclosed to parents as they pre-register, or to parents enquiring in advance]


Our secure child minding area will have various stations for the children to enjoy different activities throughout the day, based on the ages of the children. Children will be permitted to leave the premises for outside activities with child care staff, only if expressed written consent is given. A quiet room with cribs or beds, will be available for nap time for younger children.
