for the modern family

 At Nook, we believe there’s no time more important than this one: from the disorienting highs and lows of baby’s first year, the rapid-fire succession of toddler and preschool milestones, to your growth as a parent balancing family needs with your own. So we set out to elevate the standard for “family-friendly” by bringing world-class design, quality and intention to spaces where young families play, learn, and celebrate.



Our play spaces allow kids aged 0-5 to engage in play that is less about expending energy and more about exercising creativity, imagination, and independence. Created with an award-winning architecture and product design studio, Nook’s modern play experiences are centered around engagement and intention, and void of the typical overstimulating elements of children’s play.



At this stage, everyone in the family is learning and growing. With a team of early childhood development specialists, theatre professionals, and parenting coaches, we curated a truly unique set of programs, classes, and workshops that recognize and engage all members of the family.



These are the days. Celebrate the special moments. Our neutral space provides the perfect backdrop for any party theme and style — from the elaborately detailed to the wonderfully simple.




We only have 18 summers together with our kids. 18 summers to embrace the sunblock battles and the bug spray hassle because, when they’re over, some of the magic goes with it too. Let’s hold on to these days a little longer. Introducing 18 Summers — a calendar of 18 special events to help you make the most of this summer. We're teaming up with a bunch of amazing brands (Simply Sweet Root, The Dough Project, and Encore Stage to name a few) to bring you everything from ice cream making to lemonade mixing, a bug zoo to a bubble party. We’re doing everything we can to make this summer linger longer.
