General Information

The Children’s Program will provide safe activities to engage and entertain children from infancy through age 14 over the course of the convention. In 2012, about 80 children of all hearing abilities participated in the program.

Pre-registration is required for the Children’s Program; there will be no on-site registration. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until the program is full or until program registration closes on May 15, 2014. Registration is for the full three-day program only; single-day registrations cannot be accommodated. Parents who are looking for babysitting for one day or in the evening may contact the hotel’s concierge service to make these arrangements.

Communication during the Children’s Program is through listening and spoken language. Children of all ages will remain onsite throughout the program; there will be no field trips. Infants and toddlers through 47 months of age will participate in activities based in a few rooms and a limited outdoor area. Children ages 4 through 14 will move around the resort throughout the day to participate in a variety of activities.

Children will be assigned to a group of same- or similar-age peers based on chronological age and grade level. Activities will be led by a team of individuals experienced in working with children of all ages and who are familiar with the activities at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort. All childcare personnel are screened and approved for participation in the program prior to the convention.

Meals and Snacks

Throughout the Children’s Program, lunch and two snacks are provided each day. Lunch will include a selection of beef, poultry and vegetarian (lacto-ovo) options. If the child has additional dietary restrictions, one of the following may be requested: vegan, gluten free or kosher. If the child’s dietary restrictions are more severe or restrictive, parents should plan to provide the meals and snacks required by the child. We are not able to meet requests for specific foods. Note: due to the number of children with nut allergies, we refrain from providing foods that contain nuts.

Medication

Program staff cannot administer any medication. If a child is not able to administer his or her own medication, a parent or legal guardian is required to administer the medication.

AG Bell does not provide personal aides, one-on-one care or interpreters for any child in the program. If your child requires this type of care or oversight, parents will need to provide this care. For infants and toddlers, diapers and formula are not provided
