The newest CCLC center is full of light and color – and the newest members of the MINDBODY company family.
MINDBODY is a technology company that provides business management software like online appointment booking for wellness services. As the company grew, more and more of the 950 employees at their headquarters needed high-quality childcare; something that was hard to find in San Luis Obispo, Calif.
“At MINDBODY, our culture is core to everything we do,” said Jeff Harper, Senior Vice President of People and Culture at MINDBODY. “From our generous health insurance and vacation benefits to our variety of onsite fitness classes and extensive professional development programs, our employee offerings are designed to cultivate an amazing workplace that is inspired by our core values. The Little Ensos Center will further enrich our caring workplace culture by providing our team members with the added comfort of knowing that their young ones are close by, and that they’re receiving quality care from passionate and knowledgeable teachers.”
Together, MINDBODY and CCLC designed an on-site center for infants and toddlers in an environmentally friendly, LEED certified building that’s airy and bright and reflects the MINDBODY ethos, right down to the center’s name: Little Ensos. The name comes from the enso in the company’s logo, a Zen Buddhist symbol that signifies the beauty of imperfection and the process of continually evolving.
“MINDBODY was interested in enhancing their employee benefits and we are thrilled with the opportunity to work with them to better serve their employees,” said Leila McCarty, Client Relations Business Partner at CCLC. “We’ve already heard from parents that they’re excited to have their young children on campus during the work day. This is an offering that really differentiates MINDBODY as an employer.”
Parents are encouraged to connect with their children during the workday, whether they’re a mother using the nursing room or a father who just wanted to check on his toddler. (A floor-to-ceiling glass wall filled with colorful balls means mom and dad can peek into the center but babies and toddlers can’t see their parents – reducing the chance of meltdowns when mom or dad has to go back to work.)
MINDBODY also provides tuition subsidies for qualifying families to assist their employees with the cost of child care at Little Ensos.
