a solution for today's Modern Workforce
coworking + Childcare Co-Op
how our Co-OP Model works
Work to Play. Play at Work.
Our Co-Op model is designed to serve as the modern day village for today’s entrepreneurial families seeking parenting support and creative collaboration. We strive to provide a home away from home for parents who desire a focused work environment without the household distractions in addition to engaging play experiences for their kids. All of our curriculum and programming is play-based, strengths-based, and founded in design thinking principles. At Creative Habitat, we encourage familes to explore their individual creative gifts. Here, we work to play and play at work! Play is at the heart of innovation and since Creative Habitat is an innovative approach to childcare and coworking, we believe play is fundamental for both kids and adults. All Co-Op members have the opportunity to serve alongside our skilled childcare leaders and learn from the true experts in play – kids! Parents can then bring an attitude of play and innovation back to their work. Win/Win!
our Co-OP Model values
Play & creativity
There are countless scientific studies that show play is essential to our well-being, creativity, and health. Creative Habitat is all about creating nurturing environments for families to support overall well-being. Well-being helps us think more creatively and helps us resolve challenging situations. Parenting and running a business can both be challenging, so why not add a healthy dose of play in the weekly routine? Why not make play a creative habit? We focus on the power of play in business and life because we believe it reaps substantial rewards for your health, the success of your business, and the overall well-being of the family unit.

our Co-OP Model Focuses on
We focus on strengths-based development for the families we serve. This creates a flexible environment where we encourage everyone to leverage their unique talents and creative gifts to positively contribute to the Co-Op model. We also provide resources to our members to help develop their strengths outside of Co-Op sessions including providing all members a copy of Gallup’s Strengths-Based Parenting book which extends strengths-based psychology to the most important operating system in the world – the family.
our Co-OP Model is founded in
While all of our Co-Ops follow a basic model, we design each Co-Op to meet the unique needs of the families involved. We seek to leverage the individual strengths of each of the Co-Op members to design a creative and productive environment where both parents and kids can thrive. We believe design thinking involves creating the Co-Op experience with and around the families we serve. Their feedback and input fuels our design and innovation process.

We know how busy the days are when you are caring for little ones. We also know how much noise you face on a daily basis whether it is physical noise, digital noise, or internal thoughts swirling around. We designed Creative Habitat with the goal of providing you some much needed focused time and space to reconnect with your intuition and rekindle the passion within. We know any great work requires focus which is why we focus on creating great places to work.
