The Child spaces so far...

To give you an idea of what I have been up to this afternoon, here is the very draft programe in glorious technicolour. 
Saturday appears to be the busiest day and most favoured for children too (Hence the choice of having a professional creche that day).  I have therefore worked around what we had and created a program of activities _as well as_ the creche for Saturday.  With regard to the rooms, you can see they are colour coded, both the mini room next to Oshaneshii and the hotel suite will be used.  I am not sure if people would prefer that the creche remain in the suite all day, that might be easier...let me know.
As for the other days...  As you can see, activities (where we have them) will be next to Oshaneshii and there will be no creche if there is an activity running at this stage.  If people start putting their hands up to run the fan creche in the hotel suite that can be reconsidered.  At some times there is a fan creche but no activities running - the room allocation for this has been random.  From what splanky has been saying, it seems we won't have huge numbers at any one time so one room should be adequate anyhow, any preference which one we use? 
I have thrown a few names at various times based on what people have given me.  If you are unhappy with what I suggest at this point let me know, it is just a draft.  Alternatively, if you can do more also sing out. If you are reading this and want to help, also please comment with which gap you can fill.  As you can see there are a few gaps where there will be nothing available at this stage...
black_samvara needs the final program by the 18th if it is going into the Con booklet, which would be nice and kind of useful so please check, look and comment (politely please : ) )!

Looking good! well done, you are doing such a great job with this :)

I can't see any clashes with other program items for me atm so that is fine.

Is there a reason you are changing rooms for the creche? Unless there is a reason I think it would be much easier (particularly in terms of kids comfort, plus not having to move stuff) to keep it consistently in the one room.

And don't worry about not having stuff or or creche on at all times--just having the space available for parents to go with their kids and let them play is a godsend :)

That's the kind of feedback I'm after. I have shifted the professional creche to the acacia suite for the day now...

Just a few more gaps to fill for the fan creche - would you be ok with one more hour? I think if you and I and maybe one or two others can do an hour we are basically fully staffed! I might shift you from the 4-5pm slot Fri to 3-4 as welland shut an hour earlier that day - better to close early and be fully operational than have a gap don't you think?

yep, I agree.

I am prepared to do more hours in theory, but I would like to check out the program first, panels I really want to see might take preference over extra hours :) but yeah, pencil me in.
