Co-Office Day Care Solutions for Working Moms

Day Care Offices Offer Best of All Worlds For Working Moms

Pack your briefcase and don't forget the sippy cup. While the debate over the success of working mothers rages on, many mamas seek out jobs that allow them to work from home in order to achieve the balance they desire. Having the flexibility to conduct their business as their wee ones wander about sounds like an ideal situation until the kiddos refuse to take their naps and mom is forced to conduct a conference call hiding on the floor of her closet.

Babysitters, nannies and traditional day care centers may be available to watch the kids, but where does that leave the work from home mom? Cubes and Crayons is one solution. A Bay Area co-working space, the first of its kind, offers on-site day care for members. The mostly female members can use desk space, WiFi, communal kitchens and lounge areas while their lil ones enjoy all of the benefits of day care right next door. Members pay based on the frequency with which they use the space and are surrounded by parents in similar working situations.

Would you consider joining a co-working day care center to allow you to maintain your career while still spending as much time with your children as possible?

As a WAHM who spends many nights thinking up outdoor activities to keep her nanny and son out of the apartment, I would love this. The interaction with other mothers in a similar situation would be great too!
