Discovering innovations that matter since 2002

Baby hotel | Update

Work & Lifestyle

We recently featured Kinderinsel, a Germany hotel for children. Following up on that is a spotting from South Africa: Baby Hotel. Baby Hotel is a specialized childcare facility for babies up to three years old. Each child has his or her own cot and bedding, and a cubby for personal belongings. Nurseries have en-suite bathrooms, and there are spacious play areas and big, secure gardens. Babies are grouped by age, and each age group has no more than five babies per designated minder. The facilities, located in Johannesburg and Pretoria, are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Normal day care hours are between 7 am and 6 pm, but overnight stays are easily accommodated, facilitating parents who are stuck in a meeting at the end of the day, or need to catch a 6 am flight. Why we think the hotel approach to childcare will spread? Short drop-offs and 24/7 availability are life savers for busy parents. And specialized facilities for babies are a gap in the market. Combine the two, and you’re on to a winner 😉
