Childcare at ESC Congress

ESC Congress 2024, London & Online, 30 August - 2 September

Dear ESC Congress delegates,

The ESC is delighted to offer all parents a professional childcare service for the duration of the congress. Make the most of your attendance while your child(ren) is well cared for and entertained at the Congress venue.

The service will be provided by Nipperbout, a trusted provider of childcare services to events that has been working across global exhibitions, conferences and congress for over 30-years.


The Nipperbout team will be bringing their Spy Academy-themed creche to this year’s event. Your child will navigate Nipperbout laser course, train their senses, head out on a treasure hunt to forage for items of interest, mix their own mocktails, pit their wits in card games, build a spy HQ and more. All in addition to the usual Nipperbout activities of dress up, arts and crafts, quiet time, reading, dance and exercise classes, a huge variety of games, and nutritious snacks.


Our goal is to provide your children with a comfortable, safe and happy experience and enable you to focus on the Congress knowing they are cared for and close by. Nipperbout’s staff-to-child ratios are high to ensure that every child feels valued and gets the attention they need and deserve, the activities and entertainment are varied to cater for the needs of all children and the Nipperbout team are selected according to their integrity, experience, education and enthusiasm.
