We are currently trying to gauge child-minding needs.  There are a few options; one of them being an external child-minding company that will come to the Mantra and host a fully supplied creche in a room at the hotel.  The cost would be between $7 and $9 per hour; we would need a minimum of 10 children and require a minimum of 3 hours booked.  When you are registering; if you are interested in furthering the conversation about a child-minding facility please ensure that you click the 'Add' button.  You are very welcome to contact Sarah Jordison directly on events@gci.org.au should you have any questions.
