A Smart Spot for Nurturing Smart Ideas
How will 2015 shape up for you. Hands up if you want it to be the year when an idea turns into a reality?
You already know we are passionate about parent empowerment and seems we’re not alone. Step into the spotlight Ann Nkune who has created Parent-Cubator and Parent Workspace with whom we are delighted to be collaborating with in 2015.
Working patterns have changed beyond recognition in the 25 years Riverside Cares has been supporting families. The concept of ‘workplace’ has altered and with it there is now a far more flexible approach to what defines a working day. But does this allow for real creativity, the kind of creativity that enables a parent to foster an idea and mold it into something that could have a commercial reality?
Parent-Cubator is helping parents and carers by offering a place where would-be entrepreneurs can develop their ideas without having to worry about childcare. Ann has witnessed the development of co-working spaces and with her first love Bloomsbury Babies has created a social working space which offers ten 2-hour sessions for in Belsize Park for £99 (£20 for parents on low income). The new term of this rolling programme begins January 10th 2015.
Parent Workspace is Ann’s other ‘baby’ where she’s offering 3 hour hot-desking and crèche sessions in Islington and Belsize Park, at £6 per hour it’s irresistible http://www.bloomsburybabies.co.uk/parents-work-space/
Add into the mix an opportunity to be mentored by fellows from the Royal Society of Arts and concessionary places for women on low income and we hope you will agree with us it is irresistible.

What’s clear is that there is more and more need for flexible and creative ways of addressing the dual challenge of working and bringing up a family. If you’re idea is already up and running or your need is more than one day per week Riverside Cares has developed a system where you can access home-based childcare for as little as half a day and only when you need it. Daily we have qualified experience DBS police cleared nannies. Our offices open at 7.30am Monday to Friday click here to learn more.
