Crèche available for delegates

In 2017, for the first time, ANZCA is able to make available the services of CHARLTON BROWN®, a professional childcare provider, to delegates attending the 2017 ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) in Brisbane.

CHARLTON BROWN® will run an onsite crèche at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) as well as offering discounted nanny rates for 2017 ANZCA ASM delegates who would like care for their children offsite. This is an independent service separate from the College.

The crèche and the nanny service are both offered as pilots in 2017 following feedback from delegates at previous ASMs.

An evaluation will be conducted post the ASM to determine satisfaction with the service offered and whether it met the needs of delegates.

ANZCA accepts no responsibility for the services offered by CHARLTON BROWN®.
