Parents' Nook is an on-demand parent care solution. Our mission is to give parents some much needed ME time while the kids play happily nearby. We are different than other childcare services because we are not a drop off childcare. The Nooks' are designed so that parents are onsite but can have the space to socialize and/or get their tasks accomplished.
