Facilitating childcare arrangements at the IEEE Conference on Decision and Control

The IEEE CSS cannot subsidize childcare for families attending the conference with their children. However, we want to facilitate childcare arrangements and coordinate families to reduce cost.
Aria hotel works with Nannies & Housekeepers USA:
They charge a flat rate of 55 USD/hour for a nanny to takes care of up to 3 children. Different families can pool their children (up to 3) and split the hourly rate. If you are interested in sharing a nanny with another family, please contact the local arrangements chair Elisa Franco (

More information about Nannies & Housekeepers USA:

  • There is a 4-hour minimum requirement for all in-room nanny services. Nannies & Housekeepers U.S.A. requests a minimum notice of 4 hours for booking a nanny. There is a 4-hour cancellation policy. If a family does not cancel at least 4 hours in advance, they will be billed for the full 4 hours (220 USD).
  • All major credit cards are accepted and a credit card number is required when reserving a nanny. Nannies & Housekeepers U.S.A. only accepts credit cards for payment for all Hotel In-Room Nanny Services.
  • All of the nannies must be at least 20 years old with a minimum of two years of experience with verifiable references. Every nanny is meticulously screened (Social Security check, drug test, criminal check). All nannies must have current CPR and First Aid certification. Nannies must successfully complete Nannies & Housekeepers U.S.A. training.
  • The nanny will arrive at the hotel 15 minutes early. Nannies are easily recognizable in their Nannies & Housekeepers U.S.A. polo shirts. Many nannies are professional educators and many are bi-lingual. The nanny will have the client sign a release form authorizing her to seek medical attention in case of an emergency. The form also provides a space to indicate if it is okay for the nanny to take the children out of the hotel room and/or off the hotel property. The nannies can also bring games, books, and other age appropriate activities for the children.
