You’ll need more than a couple bucks for a cup of coffee if you join the new parents-and-kids space backed by Marissa Mayer.
Page Six revealed the former Yahoo CEO — who famously told employees, including many parents, that they couldn’t work from home when she ran the company — has helped fund the Wonder.
The Tribeca center, which is described as a “place to ditch your phone and have meaningful connections with your favorite people,” will provide playtime, parties and a parents-only bar.
However, you’ll have to cough up $4,800 a year if you join.
Sarah Robinson launched it after taking her child to “lackluster” play spaces.
“There was no place to sit but the floor, and I would have paid someone $100 for a cup of coffee,” she told CNN Business. “As a parent, it’s so polarizing: You could either do something for your children and your own brain is turned off, or you could take your kid to a restaurant and be stressed out the whole time. Someone is always disappointed.”
The Wonder has a series of play areas, from a library and arts-and-crafts section to a space-themed playroom.
Memberships cost $400 a month for the family and a caretaker, and annual contracts are required.
