What is The Pod Works?

A mom minded Tacoma business designed as a safe, cozy haven for whatever Mama needs, especially in the early years. A special place for anything from a birthday party or workshop rental, to a community clubhouse to meet friends and teach our children, to a shared office equipped with wifi, coffee, snacks and toys (perfect for ages 2-7).

The Pod Works was born to empower and uplift other local mothers in the swing between work and play. It’s why our walls are decorated with mom made art and lady-boss goods and services are featured everywhere from the display case in the entry to the events that happen here. It’s why we joined forces with The Pod Collective to offer resources and business training to those who need it. It’s also why we encourage play-to-work swaps between moms to allow us to do it all and get it done, while enjoying the journey.

How Does It Work?

Moms join as members and pay one monthly fee for themselves and their children to enjoy the space each month for a certain amount of bookable, kid-friendly office hours, between 8 am and 8 pm. Members are then welcome to unlimited evening hours, kid-free after 8 pm, in addition to invites to The Pod Works events. As a member, you can even bring a guest/client and rent the office room for private meetings up to 60 minutes

*Shared space may be limited to approximately 5 members during kid friendly hours.


Dip 8 hrs/mth for $49

Full 20 hrs/mth for $89

Unlimited hrs/mth for $150

Collective $25/mth

***Add on 3 hrs or a guest’s day pass for $15

How Do I Get Started?

Members schedule to start-up for a small, one-time fee ($30) and sit down with owner Kayla Schroader to review policy and procedure, assign logins for the entry and security systems, and share the online booking website and private Facebook group.

Maybe you aren't ready to commit to monthly hours but you want the community element of other mama business owners? We have just the right thing for you!  

The Pod Collective

We support Moms through the ups and downs of running a business and raising children. We are there to listen, support, bounce ideas off and help each other not feel alone. You will get support on ways to grow your business in sustainable ways and still have time for those sacred motherhood moments with your family. Come join us for monthly co-working blocks at the Pod Works, workshops and outings. You get all the community aspects, just not the bookable hours!
