Welcome To

Creative Habitat

Whether you are navigating parenthood and business development for the first time or are a seasoned entrepreneur with a family, we are glad you are here.  It takes a village to raise a family and grow a business.  At Creative Habitat, we do both together. 

We are dedicated to creating a nurturing environment for families to work, play, and grow in business and life.  We partner with community spaces to provide workspace for parents, playspace for kids, and creative coworking for all. Creative Habitat provides a flexible solution for today’s modern workforce where work, play, and community are interwoven to create an engaging experience for both parents and their kids.

May your family and business be enriched.

"I chose to join Creative Habitat because I want to surround myself with other like-minded women who love their kids and want to be moms but also have a dream too! It's ok to want both. It's hard to go it alone and this Co-Op group provides a village of support that has benefited both my family and my business."
"Any time you get the chance to work with an organization that is passionate and know their target is great! We loved having moms, kids, and the Creative Habitat team members at the museum during their summer 2018 and 2019 Co-Op program. We also love that we continue to see these families throughout the year."

"Creative Habitat is an innovative childcare solution for entrepreneurial parents and their kids. Their signature Co-Op program and partnership model brings economic vitality to the communities and families they serve."
