NextKids – About Us

NextKids Facebook Header

In a world hyper-connected through technology, we are often separated by space. Nowhere is this more evident than in the challenges of balancing a productive work life with a new family. Up until now, the best care environment for our children and the best work environment for ourselves have been in different places.

NextKids challenges the status quo by creating a workspace for parents and a carespace for children, where both parent and child can thrive, equally, without compromise – in the same location. We invite you to experience a new way of living, working, and caring for your children the way we were always meant to – together.

 We welcome you to learn more about our:

Care Approach & Team

NextKids was founded by a mom who valued the closeness of her family and wanted a way to integrate her work and her life as a new mother. The team at NextKids is dedicated to supporting a family’s growth and development. NextKids joined NextSpace in 2013 to bring this vision to reality.

You: As a parent, you are most likely experiencing, in some way, the (r)evolution of how you work & live. You crave the physical, virtual, and social framework that enables you as a professional to successfully compete in the 21st century knowledge economy and lead a more integrated, balanced, enjoyable and saner life. You thrive in an environment where you can bounce ideas off others, share knowledge, build relationships, find support and grow mind, body and soul. You are excited about getting your work done AND being close to your child. You, like us, believe that “we’re better together.”

Your Child: Whether your child is on the go or just new to this big, wonderful world – engaging with caring, loving adults and other children is essential to building and maintaining successful, healthy relationships. We celebrate the development of children and through strong, healthy bonds to feed their sense of being known and understood. This encourages children to stay engaged with learning and further fortifies their relationships. We are honored to shape the next generation of thriving, creative citizens.

Together: When we can more seamlessly integrate work and life, we believe that we’re better. We’re better together – as a community, a family, a talent workplace ecosystem, a society!

Our Team: We’ve assembled a cohesive team of incredible early childhood development educators. Meet our team! 

Memberships & Amenities:

NextKids offers membership levels that allow you to integrate work and life in the way that works best for your family – from working a little to working a lot, all while benefiting your child’s development. Our memberships include 24/7 access to the workspace, 2-day, 3-day, or 5-day full-day care and include compostable diaper service, organic snacks, and programming.

Infants (3-18 months) and toddlers (18-36 months) thrive in separate spaces which include areas for napping, eating, art, motor development, reading, building, dramatic play, and so much more! We also have a gym romp space for indoor play and group classes. We also take the children outside to nearby playgrounds in buggies and carriers.

Awesome stuff you get with every membership:

Awesome peeps: A community of creative, curious, fun-loving infants & toddlers to roll a ball, wash hands with, high five or hug when your child falls down or when they do something new.

Play ‘til you drop: Play-based learning through our morning meeting, creative play, enrichment activities, self-care, and mealtimes.

Developmentally-appropriate care: Our teachers get to know your child in a way that helps them develop gross motor, fine motor, language, cognitive, social, and self-care skills.

Nap in peace: Nap rooms and cots provide rest-times. Infants nap on their own schedules and toddlers look forward to universal resting time following lunch. An alternative to universal rest is a cozy book or a quiet project.

Diapers, Diapers, Diapers: We work with EarthBaby Compostable Diaper Service to provide your child’s bum with a chemical-free diaper that gives back to the earth within 14 weeks.

Snacks and more snacks: Seasonally appropriate, locally-sourced, and thoughtfully prepared organic snacks by NextKids and Fresh Baby Bites.

Nice and tidy: Daily toy sanitization, scientist-approved natural materials and fibers, & daily janitorial services that keep your child’s carespace healthy, safe and clean.
