Child care

The linux.conf.au team has committed to provide a children's programme for the duration of the conference, free of charge for attendees' children.

If you're planning on bringing your child(ren) to LCA and require child care, please ensure you:

  • List all children and their ages in your attendee profile; and
  • Fill out our childcare form before 31 December 2018.

Child Minding service

5 years and younger

The child minding facility will be located nearby to the main conference rooms in the Jack Erskine Building and will be staffed by qualified professionals.

The service will be available from 8:30am to 6pm each day.

Code Club Aoteaora

6 years and older

We are excited to have partnered with Digital Future Aotearoa / Code Club to provide an engaging and educational programme for all children aged 6 and up. More information about the programme will be released to the conference wiki in due course.

The programme will be run on-campus and might involve one or two offsite trips which we'll announce beforehand. It is run by staff and volunteers from Digital Future Aotearoa with support from LCA volunteers.

Morning and afternoon tea will be available, and parents are expected to pick up their children during lunch hours.

The programme will run from 8:30am to at least 5pm (we're working on the details) on all five days of the conference.
