The Peace + Riot Family

Set up by South London parent of two, Caroline Newte Hardie, Peace + Riot is a brand-new concept providing a unique co-working/leisure/hospitality space with childcare on site. Our childcare offer works in the same way a home-help would, except – bonus - you’re not at home. Excellent imaginative, educational activities are provided for the children to engage, education and enrich. Caroline’s 15-year career in Education and Management Consultancy, and 6 years as parent, has given her a great foundation to build the business and concept whilst knowing the market and the demands of our customers. Peace + Riot is there to support new families navigating their way through an ever-changing landscape of demands and expectations.
