Corporate Kids Events, an organization that provides conference childcare, teamed up with the LGS Foundation (Lennox Gastaut Syndrome) a non-profit organization in Renton, Washington on May 10th-12th of 2019 for the International Family and Professional Conference on LGS. Corporate Kids events had done many special needs kids camps and this would be the first for the Foundation. The event was located on the beautiful Hyatt Lake Washington and welcomed 350 families.
The LGS Foundation is an organization dedicated to providing information about Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome while raising funds for research, services and support for individuals living with LGS and their families. The Foundation is based in New York and provides services and information to thousands of members across the world.
Corporate Kids Events allowed families to bring their children with them to this 3-day conference and the kids participated in their own fun side event with the theme of Arts and Crafts Extravaganzza ™ while the parents learned more about LGS research, support, professional educators and socialization. We organized many activities for the kids which included, arts and crafts, games and playing music together, which the kids loved!
Corporate Kids Events hosted 34 children for this 3-day conference childcare program, managed by our own Miss Lucy Leon. “It was amazing to see the LGS kids and non-affected siblings interacting and having a great time with each other,” reports Lucy.
Playing music is great for any child to teach them rhythm, brain development, memory and helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. “My favorite part was when we all played music, the whole room seemed to come alive and kids of all abilities had a fantastic time!” adds Lucy.
“The board games and cards were a bit hit!” said Lucy. Board games play a big role in children’s brain development and growth. Kids playing board games helps them to gain logical and reasoning skills, boost critical thinking and communication…its also really fun.
The arts and crafts activities were also very well enjoyed by the kids. “The kids really loved all the coloring and gluing,” Lucy adds. Art is a non-judgemental form of human expression and also boosts creativity. The kids loved creating art projects with their peers and our staff at this conference childcare event.
Many of the specially trained staff were extremely excited to work with the special needs LGS Kids. Everyone learned quite a lot, the kids had a fantastic time and everyone was very well cared for.
This LGS Foundation event in Renton, Washington was located at the Hyatt Lake Washington Seattle Seaport Hotel with 350 families in attendance. You can learn more about the LGS Foundation by visiting their website www.lgsfoundation.org
