The LASA2023 Congress will be hybrid: virtual, and on-site in Vancouver, Canada, May 24–27, 2023. Aiming to support LASA members participating in the LASA2023 Hybrid Congress, LASA is pleased to announce childcare services during the Congress for both on-site and virtual participants. 

On-Site Childcare 

Recognizing that childcare is a great responsibility and after the positive experience in past congresses, LASA has hired childcare professionals and is pleased to subsidize this service for in-person participants and attendees

The service will be provided by Accent on Children's Arrangements, Inc. for the Congress days only, from Wednesday, May 24 through Saturday, May 27, 2023.


Childcare rates vary by age and number of hours. These amounts do not reflect the actual cost of the service, as they are partially subsidized by LASA. Each reservation has a non-refundable fee of $15 per child. All amounts are quoted in American dollars.
