Unfortunately, we are unable to offer childcare at IRC this year.

Children are welcome to attend IRC with their families this year.  We will have activity packs for kids available in the workshop sessions and ask that you step out with your child if they become disruptive.

To help support families who may need to bring their children to IRC, we will provide a sensory break room that families are welcome to visit with their child.
