How It Works

You Get:

  • A shared desk at a coworking space
  • A network of parents to help look after your little one while you work

You Give:

  • Your time to look after your coworkers' children while they work


  • $200/month with no contract requirement

Wait, what?

The Workaround currently has four desks available at Rough Draft coworking studio in East Williamsburg from Monday to Friday, 9am - 8pm (no weekend hours available at this time). We can take up to 12 members, who may book spots on an hourly basis at one of these desks through a dedicated booking app. 

Parents arrange their own childcare with each other on a dedicated co-op scheduling site. The system uses a currency of points, where each time a parent watches another parent's child, they earn points towards their own babysitting. No money changes hands, built in playdates abound and a community of freelancers can pick up more work knowing we have each other to rely on.

We are now offering swap-only or desk-only options, please enquire for details
