Your child’s home away from home

Congress isn't just for adults - it's for the whole family! We've arranged some exciting programs to ensure that kids of all ages, including those with Down syndrome, have a fantastic time while you enjoy every moment of the event.

We've teamed up with the experts from Corporate Kidz Australia to provide safe, engaging and age-appropriate activities for children at the Congress venue.

All Corporate Kidz educators are highly qualified and certified in first
