Take Your Child To Work Day - Phase I Registration to Open Tomorrow at 12:00 PM ET.

The 27th Annual NIH Take Your Child to Work Day (TYCTWD) Phase I Registration opens tomorrow, March 23 at 12:00 PM (noon) at https://takeyourchildtowork.nih.gov. At that time, you will be able to register for up to two limited space activities per child.

Registration Phase II begins next Tuesday, March 30 at 12 PM (noon), at which point you will be able to register each child for an additional two limited space activities, for a maximum of four limited space activities per child. Choose from "open" and "limited space" activities. Open activities do not require registration.

Here are a few reminders:

  • The registration site is only accessible by you using your NIH PIV card login credentials (either at work or through VPN). For additional information on how to pre-register or register your child/ren visit: https://takeyourchildtowork.nih.gov/Documents/TYCTWDSiteGuide.pdf.
  • Be prepared. You can now review the limited activities with your child and have at least your top 5 selected in case one activity is full. You can check the registration site periodically up until the event for available slots in case someone unregisters for an activity.
  • Check in with your supervisor to inquire about your ICO's policy for participating in TYCTWD.
  • Registration will remain open through April 22.

Individuals needing a sign language interpreter to participate in this event may enter the request directly at https://portal.ainterpreting.com or contact Linda Kiefer at 301-827-3252, no later than Wednesday, April 7. Find additional information about the NIH Interpreting Services program at https://www.ors.od.nih.gov/pes/dats/interpret. Individuals needing other reasonable accommodations should contact their ICs for support.
