Bean Work Play cafĂ© is the new alternative for busy parents who need a place to work and flexible, safe childcare for their kids. As more and more parents meet the challenges of this new economy by opening their own business or by supplementing their income with contract and part-time work, they need options for managing childcare.
Offering parents an open work space environment, mini private offices and a conference room, Bean enables parents to find a little quiet time and/or conduct business. Right down the hall their children will participate in an educational care program that is inspired by the Italian, Reggio preschool approach to learning. Kids will experience a self-directed learning program with highly-qualified teachers in a stimulating space filled with natural light. Theyâ€™ll interact with sound, movement and found objects as they play and discover.
Bean was founded on the premise that parents need options to keep their kids busy and happy beyond the endless scheduling of play dates and play facilities. Parents need an option that caters to their comfort and convenience as well. Beanâ€™s alternative environment appeals to both adults and kids. The fun, modern and relaxed space helps create a community where kids can thrive and parents can be productive.
â€śWeâ€™ve all struggled with trying to work at home while our kids are demanding our attention. Or, going nuts trying to run errands while our children are shuffled in and out of car seats. Both situations leave everyone frustrated. We believe Bean gives parents a reasonable way to manage work and family while responsibly tending to both.â€ť says founder and proprietor, Adela Yelton. Ms. Yelton, a former HR executive at ING, is the mother of three including twins. she knows firsthand the challenges of both professional and stay-at-home parents.
