What made us start BubbaDesk?

BUBBADESK IS A COWORKING SPACE WITH ONSITE CHILDCARE, WITH SPACES ON THE CENTRAL COAST, ST LEONARDS, AND CARINGBAH. MORE SITES PLANNED FOR LAUNCH ACROSS AUSTRALIA!

From the founders.

BubbaDesk Founders are Lauren and Tom Perrett, with Chief Play Officer, Charles (2 years), and new bubba Harvey born in July. "I returned to work after just 6 months of maternity leave and was riddled with post-natal anxiety, plus we found it really challenging to find reliable (and affordable!) care for our son, Charles, on the Central Coast of Australia. 

We juggled WFH with a baby for a few months, feeling guilty Charles wasn’t getting the present, playful parents we wanted to be. I love my career and wanted to hit my targets and perform at the same level as pre-baby, but I also wanted to make sure I was being the best possible mum.

The idea to build a space where I could be super productive, and have my child close by being looked after by trusted professionals seemed like a no-brainer. My mothers' group validated the idea immediately! The original plan was to have us all work from the same office and all pitch in for a few nannies. And that’s where the idea for BubbaDesk started.

The demand for BubbaDesk across Australia has been huge - with parents wanting a space in Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Adelaide. Watch this space - we are coming!

We're really excited to watch the BubbaDesk community grow. Any businesses or brands that want to collaborate, please get in touch. We hope to meet you in the space soon.
