Our Locations

19 Prospect St.

Prospect Street is the original flagship office for Work and Play. The space was custom-designed to offer separate and soundproofed space for childcare, and a combination of communal coworking and meeting room spaces. Elements of convenience and comfort are felt throughout the workspace, while flexible child-led experiences were fundamental to developing the indoor/outdoor spaces for play.

12 South Orange Ave.

This space is work-dedicated with private offices, reserved desks, community space and meeting rooms… all just a block from South Orange train station in the heart of South Orange Village Center.
