We're offering a free crèche to all attendees at this year's PyCon UK.
It was also offered at the recent EuroDjango Con.

Put simply, it was a field on our ticket booking form and we have a
childcare provider lined up once we know the numbers closer to the event
date. We simply have to put aside a room for the crèche and our provider
is bringing "equipment" appropriate for the ages of the kids who'll be

BTW, we also have a kids' day where 100 kids between the ages of 7-18
will be turning up to learn Python (http://pyconuk.org/education#kids).

Happy to answer any questions.

Greetings from EuroPython in a hot and humid Bilbao!
