Award-winning child care provider Kids & Company is innovating the lives of Boston’s working families with the introduction of Kidco Work, which will offer complimentary co-working spaces to parents starting September 3, 2019. Desks are available at Kids & Company's Boston Seaport Center on a drop-in basis for parents with children enrolled in any Kids & Company child care program (part-time or full-time). Individual work areas are complemented by a communal work space, lounge area, coffee station, as well as access to private nursing spaces. Kidco Work — where boardroom meets playroom — maintains a child-first standard: ensuring consistent access to high-quality child care. This model is also being piloted in Toronto (Queen West), with additional locations planned for both Canada and the U.S.
“Kids & Company is proud to offer a solution for working families.” says Kids & Company Founder & CEO (and mom of 8!), Victoria Sopik.“To address an increasing need for flexibility, Kidco Work allows parents to achieve work-life balance by pairing high-quality child care & early learning with effective work and collaboration spaces.”
