Childcare is not provided. This pre-convention mini-conference is geared for adults and takes place during exhibitor set-up for the AFHE Home Education Convention. There is no place available for children to play or hang out during the mini-conference sessions. Nursing infants are welcome as always. For your children's safety and to allow you to glean all that you can from these mini-conference sessions, we encourage you to make childcare arrangements early. If you bring your child with you, he or she must remain with you at all times, and out of courtesy for other attendees, we ask that you step out of the workshop room if your child becomes noisy or a distraction to those around you.
