Children & Hospitals Week Teacher Information

The Children and Hospitals Week field trip will be held Feb. 26 to March 2, 2018, at Louisville Slugger Field.


  • Registration will begin Monday, Nov. 27, and close Tuesday, Dec.19, 2017.
  • Children and Hospitals Week is for kindergarten students only.
  • Slots from 10 a.m. to noon are extremely popular and fill up quickly. The more flexibility you have (coming early or staying late), the greater chance you have of being scheduled. The more days you are available also increases the chances. We have 5,000 little visitors each year, and we do our best to schedule every school! Flexibility is the key!
  • Please verify with your transportation how early you are able to arrive and how late you are able to stay before completing the registration form.
  • Jefferson Transportation has agreed to offer buses for $170. In the past, buses with Jefferson Transportation have been able to stay later than regular school buses because they do not have to return for middle school runs. If you are interested in this option, call (502) 614-7269 to schedule a reservation.
