I’ve been a work-from-home mama since my first son was born. I needed flexible, affordable, and reliable childcare without missing out on my baby’s cuddly, snuggly playtime and milestones. I tried a lot of different options for childcare, but none of them were quite what I needed.
That’s why I created Itsy Bitsy Play & Café. It’s a place where parents can have a few hours of uninterrupted work while their young child is playing and engaging in activities with nurturing caregivers. It’s a place to build community with other parents, something I also needed as I was a new parent living in the city without family close by.
I envision Itsy Bitsy as a space where children can play and grow while parents have support of onsite childcare, so they can continue to nurture their passions and careers.
We are opening soon and cannot wait to meet you!
