What if you’d like your baby close but don’t want to have to chase her up and down the office while you work? Enter Cubes&Crayons, a full-time child care and office space site in Menlo Park, California, the brainchild of M. Felicity Chapman (cubesandcrayons.com). When Chapman had her first child four years ago, she thought she’d find a nanny and return to work full-time running her design company. But then she fell in love with her daughter, and her plans changed.

“[I] could control the level of work,” says Chapman about choosing which design projects she wanted. “But I couldn’t control the level of child care. I couldn’t find a nanny who wanted to work two hours one week, three the next and 40 hours the following week. And I thought there should be something like that out there.”
