Bishop Timothy W. Whitaker, Presiding
2005 Florida Annual Conference Event Preschool* Child Care
*Child care is offered for preschool age children only!
The Florida Annual Conference and First UMC, Lakeland will again provide preschool child care for delegates who are attending business sessions of the 2005 Florida Annual Conference Event, June 2-5. Preschool child care will also be offered on Wednesday, June 1, for those delegates participating in the Pre-Conference Missional Outreach Project who need preschool child care and for the Ministers’ Mates Luncheon on Saturday.
In order to provide this service, it is imperative that we know how many children will be attending, therefore pre-registration is required. If you show up at First UMC, Lakeland not having pre-registered, there is a very good possibility you will be turned away. Pre-registration ensures that we have enough child care workers on duty to meet the child/worker ratio (required by law) and also prevents us from having too many workers on duty, which hurts us financially. Please be considerate of the staff at First UMC, Lakeland who are providing this service for you and for the Conference. If your child care needs change from what you initially request on the pre-registration form enclosed, please let them know so they can adjust their staffing needs accordingly. No shows really hurt us all!
