Spotted: A London startup says it is the first co-working space in the city where childcare can also be booked on a pay-as-you-go basis. Spaces at Cuckooz Nest can be reserved for as little as one hour and costs for a co-working desk plus the use of the crèche range from £14 – £20 an hour. Monthly memberships are also available.

The company was founded by friends and entrepreneurs Charlie Rosier and Fabienne O’Neill, who say that more than 1 in 7 London freelancers are working mums. Many of these women find it very difficult to organise flexible childcare, the company says.

“London has the worst maternal employment rate in the UK — if we improved this to meet the UK average, 80,000 more mothers could be in work if they want to be,” Rosier told the Evening Standard.
