Creating A Kid-friendly Coworking Space

Balancing homeschooling with newfound remote working positions has proved to be a challenge for many working parents in the past year.

For some, this meant seeking kid-friendly coworking spaces to help balance their responsibilities. But what can operators do to modify their space and policies to better accommodate the parents?

To start, firms should distribute the workspace in a way that makes it easy for visitors with small children to occupy the area. Then, creating kid-friendly spaces categorized into age groups can help provide more catered childcare options based on their needs.

For instance, have separate spaces designated for toddlers (1 to 3 years old), preschoolers (3 to 5 years old) and school-age children over 6 years old.

Companies should also onboard professionals to help take care of the children, around one babysitter per five children.

Probably most importantly, ensure the space is safe and healthy for everyone. This allows parents to focus on their work without worrying about their children being secure in the workspace.

Creating a safe, kid-friendly coworking space means ensuring no strangers enter the space, installing security cameras that can allow parents to monitor their children from their phones and keeping the space as sanitary as possible.
