Tucked away on a quiet cobbled street in the heart of Clerkenwell, Cuckooz Nest is situated in one of Central London's most vibrant neighbourhoods. A hive of creativity, EC1 is the heart and home of design and one of the hottest food districts in London. It also boasts cultural appeal with Sadler's Wells and the Barbican Centre.
A short walk into the heart of the city, Clerkenwell also has great transport links. We are just 5 minutes walk to Farringdon station London’s newest transport hub, where you have three tube lines as well as a National Rail and later this year Crossrail.
Designed by working mums who understand the concerns new parents have when leaving their child to return to work, from the beginining, we put your children first.
Working with professionals from the world’s leading educational institute, UCL Institute of Education and in consultation with the National Day Nurseries Association, we have built the space specifically to cater to the needs of children under two. From the materials used, the choice of toys and reading materials, to the snug sleeping room and nappy changing facilities - we have left no stone unturned.
Add to that, the focus on education by childcare specialists Manny & Me and our decision to only employ Ofsted-Registered nannies - we believe parents will have total peace of mind and return to work with confidence.
Co-working in nothing new. Over the last ten years it has become established and the preferred choice for freelancers, self-employed and start-ups. Our office has everything you would expect from a co-working space in 2018.
With seperate access to the creche, we provide a welcoming and dynamic space to allow parents to get sh*t done, whilst working with like-minded people with no judgement and the potential for collaboration.
