There will be a crèche facility provided at BAUS 2024.
The creèche will be run by Nipperbout who will run a daily timetable of activities. The crèche will be FREE, however, we require all those who would require use of this facility to indicate during the online registration system; places are extremely limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Please note if you book a place and do not turn up you are denying someone else a place.

The crèche will close each day for an hourover the lunch period (12.30-13.30). This allows crèche staff a break. Parents will, therefore, have to collect their child and feed them. Children can be returned when the crèche reopens at 13.30. Nipperbout supply a healthy morning and afternoon snack. Important:
Four hours is the maximum time a child can stay in a crèche, without being collected for food (three hours for children aged three years and under).
