ng-kids 2019

May 1-3, 2019

Grand America Hotel – Salt Lake City, Utah

Ng-conf kids is an educational program designed to teach children from Kindergarten through 8th grade the fundamentals of computer science and coding. Attendees will be a mix of children of conference attendees as well as sponsored children from the community. Come explore with us, get inspired by our energetic instructors and build critical STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) skills.

ITINERARY

NG KIDS is excited to welcome back DevMountain as our educational host for 2019. We wanted to balance out our tech and science based education by bringing in some cultural “artsy” activities as well including yoga/ movement breaks and a trip to a local museum.

Join us on the third floor of the Grand America (take a left out of the elevators all the way to the end of the hallway). Our classrooms will be in Provence (for the little tikes, Kindergarten – 3rd grade) and Fountainbleau (for the older kids, 4th – 8th grade).

CHILDCARE

Hours: (W/Th/Fri from 8am – 5pm, extended hours Wednesday night from 7-10pm).

Guardian Angel Babysitting

Guardian Angel Babysitting is licensed, bonded and insured and sitters are CPR certified. Angels will be on site to assist children in the classroom, take care of children on breaks, at lunch time and any other time the need should arise – in addition to caring for the younger children who are not part of ng-kids.

Daycare child to caregiver ratios will not exceed 5:1 and will often be 3:1. If you have formula or special baby food, please send that with your child. If your child is still in diapers please send those as well. Special blankets or stuffed animals are welcome! We want your little ones to be as comfortable as possible.
