Office space meets child care

Cubes & Crayons mixes work space for professionals, 'kid space' for children

by Veronica Sudekum

I was at the Cubes & Crayons Open House a couple of weeks ago, and this is going to be a fantastic resource for local parents. The office space is professional and cozy, while the kids were playing away right down the hall. Brilliant!

Excellent idea. It is a dream of mine that you have made come true. Maybe someday I will have the opportunity to utilize your great facility. I hope you have great success and it becomes a trend for future business set up. Any thoughts on going in house to corporations? Or marketing to companies that allow telecomuters?

Thanks everyone for the great comments. We are looking to link with corporations directly and partner with them for telecommuters. If you have insight on this, give us a call or email. Feel free to contact me at any time with questions, ideas, etc. at contact@cubesandcrayons.com or 650.323.2551. I love that everyone is enjoying our company.
