Flexible Coworking with onsite Childcare

Hello everyone. Apologies we have been quiet for a while.

Sadly we have decided to wind Caboodle up for now. We think there is still a need for flexible childcare and more support for working parents and we will continue to take part in those conversations, seeing what we can do to help. However, we don’t have the capacity to run Caboodle as a CIC at the moment, either financially or in terms of time, so we are going to call it a day.

We want to thank everyone who has been involved, from the mums who gave us their ideas and support in the early days, to the children and parents who came to our sessions. We also want to thank everyone who helped make the sessions possible and gave us the chance to explore this idea further, gave us advice and listened to our thoughts. We are very happy to share our experience with others and hope one day to see some flexible childcare and work space options for all those out there who don’t work 9-5.

Best wishes from Ellie B, Isabel and Ellie F

Caboodle is a social enterprise based in South Bristol working to offer mums, dads and carers inspiring deskspace, a growing community and flexible childcare that works when you need to. 

We ran a series of PAYG pop-up coworking with childcare every term-time at Windmill Hill City Farm, Bedminster, Bristol.

Caboodle coworking maximises your valuable work time by minimising stress and travel time.

Flexible Childcare

Your under 5s will be well looked after in the Caboodle crèche, whilst you concentrate in the nearby coworking space. No commitment, book only the days you need.

Growing Community

At lunchtime, we’ll enjoy a buffet lunch together (included in the ticket price), a friendly chat and a wander around the farm.

We have a vision to provide flexible childcare that enables parents to work more easily and spend more quality time with their children. Read more about Caboodle the team and our pop-up sessions.
