Burleigh’s new co-working space offers sweet relief for working parents
If you have ever attempted to get actual computer work done with a small human at your feet, it’s likely you understand that it’s about as successful as trying to catch water in your hand. If you’re nodding at your screen right now, we have some good, nay great news. In a first for the Gold Coast, Burleigh Heads has welcomed a brand new co-working space that has a fully supervised creche.
Sure, kids are awesome but let’s be honest, they aren’t always conducive to productivity, which is precisely what makes Relative Creative’s Rebel Co-work & Play so unique. Housed in the former Australia Post office on West Burleigh Road, the space is designed for parents and carers who are trying to juggle work and family life. The creche is fully supervised by a qualified carer and is equipped with books, toys and even an indoor climbing wall so you can smash out a few hours while your little one/s play happily.
The Relative Creative Community Hub is the brainchild of local creatives Tristan Schultz and Bec Barnett, who discovered the plight of working parents firsthand when their daughter Elke was born. Alongside the co-working space, the community hub houses the Rebel Design School, a creative space where children and adults can participate in a variety of workshops and learn new skills, and Deka Design, who are returning to their Gold Coast roots to run their sought-after weekend furniture restoration and upholstery courses.
