The Hatchery: Columbia, MO Coworking with On-site Childcare


Frequently asked questions so that you understand what we're all about.

Frequently Asked Questions



Are you all open?
Yes! After a fun summer and a massive office build out we are officially open for business. Stop by for a tour today!

What is coworking?
The use of an office or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge. Thank you, Google definitions.

What does "on-site" childcare mean?
We're not a full blown daycare, so parents have to stay in the building. There's also a 4 hour time cap. So, come in, get settled and get your list accomplished so you can enjoy the rest of the day with your kiddo!

Is it 24/7?
24/7 memberships are available! A one-time fee of $25 will be applied to any membership package to gain 24/7 access.

Please note that childcare is only offered during regular business hours: Monday-Friday 8:30AM-5:00PM and Wed evenings from 5:00PM-9:00pm.

Can I come and tour?
You bet! We suggest you call and schedule a time to make sure you have our full attention.

Do I pay for coffee?
Absolutely not. Have 1 cup or 6.

Do I pay extra for the conference room?
Nope. We're not about nickel and diming people. It's on a first come first serve basis. We suggest reserving it ahead of time to make sure it's available to you. And, if you need to cancel, please be respectful and let us know so we can open it up for other members.

I don't have a child, can I still come?
Of course! The on-site childcare is an additional membership for those that need it.

I'm going to be on the phone a lot, is that okay?
Yes. Just please be mindful of your volume and proximity to other members. If the private offices are open, that may work best.

I'm a business, can I purchase a membership for an employee?
Yes! You can purchase a membership on behalf of an employee. Give us a call and we can discuss how we can fit your needs whether it's for an extended maternity leave or a remote worker.

Is this for women only? 
Nope! Come one, come all.

I don't have a "business", but could use the interactions. Can I still come?
Absolutely! We all need a tribe, and we hope that you can find yours here. 

Do you have a referral program?
We do! Any current member that refers another person who is approved for a membership will receive 10% off their next months membership.
