The Backstory

Kelsey Hubbard Rollinson will soon be opening Recess PlayWorks in Ridgefield. The co- working, child education and play space will provide a unique place for modern families managing the work-life balance. For the adults there will be a chic lounge, conference space, podcast room and more. While for children, there will be a range of different classes including STEM, foreign languages, coding, chess, an art studio and a supervised free- play zone. Rollinson decided she wanted to open her own business after noticing a void in this space when she became a working mom. "I stood around at one too many kid spaces where the parents’ engagement was an afterthought if considered at all.” “I’ve created a place for a family to go where the parents are just as much the focus as the kids. We offer comfortable seating, places where parents can bring their computers, return emails and network while their kids have a blast “offline” being entertained or learning in a fun way. It is also a place where parents and caregivers can join in the fun if they choose and play and spend time with their kids creating in the art studio. It’s the perfect “Recess” for adults and kids.

 

How Women's Business Development Council Helped

Rollinson learned of the WBDC through her mother’s work with the organization and quickly saw the immense value in the the courses. She took the GPS class and found it to be instrumental in turning her ideas into reality. “I have a greater understanding of what goes into owning and running a business. They offer great classes, mentors, and have been very helpful every step of the way. I’ve don’t think I would have gotten this far on my journey to open my own business without the WBDC.”
