What is the Detroit Parent Collective?

 The Detroit Parent Collective (DPC) is an organization dedicated to offering a supportive co-working environment, together with high-quality onsite childcare. Driven by its commitment to a social impact model, DPC is inclusive to Detroit area families with emphasis on bridging societal divides in all their forms. The DPC began with one location in Detroit’s Bagley Neighborhood and is partnering with WSU to offer services to the campus community.

 

What makes this different from traditional day-care?

 DPC's innovative model blends co-working space with childcare support. Imagine a home-like co-working space, located on campus, which offers an eco-friendly environment to its families and children. The esthetics make the space warm and inviting. There are comfortable workspaces where you can settle into your work. Children are being supervised and engaged by DPC staff, playing within close proximity of the parent and utilizing natural aesthetic materials.
