YOUR KIDS PLAY

Many working parents face obstacles that are seemingly impossible to overcome. Juggling work and parenting duties typically forces parents to prioritize one over the other. By becoming a member of The Kitchen, parents can take back their time. Children can play on-site while their parent works nearby on a flexible basis that best fits the needs of the family. The Kitchen exists to remove barriers that prevent some parents from finding a sense of balance in their lives.
