Mount Pleasant Pop-up, April 2023

Nestworks is finally back in action and will be hosting a pop-up for the month of April, 2023 at an amazing space in Mount Pleasant!

Our pop-up partner is This World’s Ours Centre (TWO), an inclusive community in the heart of Vancouver that provides a variety of programs for neurodiverse children and their families.

We are thrilled to be hosting one month of daily co-working for parents and other adults and professional childminding in a beautiful, innovative space filled with natural light. Kid-friendly amenities include a mini gym and sensory playhouse.

Nestworks will be open at TWO Monday to Friday (exclusive of holidays) from 9am to 3pm during the month of April. Learn more or book co-working and childminding

On the evening of Saturday April 29th, 2023, we will be holding Building the Nest, a celebratory fundraising event (save the date, and sign up to the newsletter to be the first to know when tickets go on sale!)

Our First Pop-up!

We were thrilled to host our first-ever pop-up childminding and co-working event at Gem House Vancouver on Saturday February 22nd. Together with our childminding partners from Pacific Immigrant Resources Society (PIRS), we hosted a wonderful day of productivity and connection. Prototyping Nestworks has been a challenge as we evolve, however this event provided a wonderful taste of what is possible when – rather than struggling to separate work and life – we seek to integrate them.

We welcomed children from as young as 10 days (Hello, Blue!) up to 14 (Madeleine‘s daughter Gigi, who along with her Lunapads business partner Suzanne’s children Aiden and Garrett, were the original inspiration for Nestworks), as well as a diverse group of parents and other supporters. A massive THANK YOU to Felicia Chang for so beautifully capturing the day in these gorgeous photographs .

Our First Community Engagement Event: Thank You!

Nestworks’ first community engagement event was held on October 24th, 2017. Over 50 people signed up to help us better understand their needs and consider our next steps. We were even joined by a small friend, one of our key user profiles! Some very rich insights were gathered, and we are now consolidating everyone’s fabulous ideas, buoyed by their optimism and encouragement. Stay tuned for more activities in 2018, and many thanks again to all of those who were able to join us!
