A flexible childcare solution for parentprenuers and freelancers

As you may have noticed, working life and parenting life doesn’t quite add up. As the nature of work changes, so many of us are in dire need of some better solutions. Solutions like the new flexible childcare facility offered by FountLondon. FountKids breaks away from the formalities of a day nursery and also offers a drop-in creche for children aged 1-5 years, plus co-working options for parents, in a creative studio within the same building. #THMsmembers can take advantage of a 15% off special during half term.

Flexible childcare is something FountLondon has always been passionate about – mainly because there doesn’t seem to be enough flexibility for families and when there is, it is often too expensive.

When FountLondon – now FountHackney– opened its gates to the railway arches back in 2015, they aimed to create a start-up accelerator and community hub. With an affordable childcare option a priority, they set out to support entrepreneurs, micro-businesses/start-ups and families. All of the above aspects factored into creating the nurturning space that is FountNursery; somewhere parents felt comfortable leaving their child while avoiding some of the stress of squeezed finances.

After the success of FountNursery, founder Rachel Munro-Peebles has wanted to develop something that answers the needs of parents whose work is more unpredictable. Offering a childcare solution for entrepreneurs and freelancers, FountKids brings the flexibility we have all been waiting for.

And it wouldn’t be a FountLondon production if the interiors were not also stylishly furnished with an eclectic mix of vintage and modern pieces. With FountKids Rachel has created a truly unique and stimulating environment for up to 16 children within FountShoreditch.

So whether it’s full time nursery, a few half days or just a couple of hours you are looking for, FountKids is the most exciting new childcare option around. Located in a central location for working parents, it has the flexibility that enables entrepreneurial mums and dads to flourish and thrive secure in the knowledge their children will be well looked after.

Free taster sessions are currently available for large groups of parents and 24 hours notice is required for all bookings. Why not take a morning or an afternoon off with some friends? Contact for more information.


FountShoreditch is the first of FountLondon‘s site house FountKids and it provides growing opportunities for not only children, but independent, micro, small and start-up businesses; FountLondon has a portfolio of commercial property working with these types of businesses within Shoreditch. Having been established for 20 years by Rachel, FountLondon’s aim is to protect and nurture creatives within an area that has seen so many leave because of over saturated rents.
