Work Hard, Play Hard – Roo’s Coworking Space

Sign up now!

Work while your child plays in a supervised Montessori-inspired environment.

Self-employed; work remotely from the rest of your team; or you’re an entrepreneur? Is your usual childcare provider ill/unavailable and you still need to get work done? Need to catch up on bills/emails/vacation planning but your trusted sitter isn’t available? Or, need to just take a break?

Utilize the comfort of Roo’s common space upstairs to meet your work-from-“home” needs, while your child (up to five years old) is engaged in Montessori-inspired play just down the stairs.

Roo’s co-working space and supervised Montessori-inspired play is available Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9:30 am – 1:30 pm and Wednesdays from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm.

How does it work?

While you’re working hard upstairs, we’ll play with your child engaging them in Montessori-inspired play and activities such as circle time, live music (Mondays), Yoga (every other Friday), etc.

Reservations are required; we have only four co-working spaces at this time. However, we allow for one drop-in per day. We encourage you to call/reserve online at least 24 hours prior to arriving to ensure we have a workspace available for you and we are appropriately staffed. We recognize that it’s not always possible to know in advance that you’ll need to work from “home” and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

What should I bring for my child?

We have all the toys and fun they’ll need, but we also suggest bringing:

  • A complete change of clothes
  • Blanket/favorite toy/lovey, if they have one
  • Pacifier
  • Diapers and wipes
  • Labeled bottles and formula/breast milk (prepared)
  • Sippy cup (labeled)
  • Snacks/lunch – nut-free

We have filtered water available and a refrigerator and microwave to store and heat up simple snacks/lunches in our kitchen. Please leave all toys at home unless it’s a lovey that helps soothe your child. We have plenty of toys for kids to play with and we would hate for a toy to get lost or left behind.

A gentle reminder that we do not currently offer drop-off childcare; and, therefore, you are legally required to stay on premises with your child; if you need to leave for any amount of time – you must take your child with you. If you’re a business owner, write this off as an out-of-pocket business expense at the end of the year- be sure to talk to your accountant!
