Users who are invited to the sub space can join a sub space. Users can also request to join a sub space. If a sub space is private but has unmoderated membership in Manage Space: Settings, then anyone can join the space.
If a user joins a sub space and they are not a member of the parent space, they are automatically added to the parent space, regardless of the parent space's visibility. To disable this, go to Control Panel > System > Dynamic Properties > System Properties and set AutoJoinParentSpaces to false.
If a user is a member of a sub space and they leave the parent space, they remain a member of the sub space, regardless of the sub space's visibility.

You can make private content accessible to non-members by checking Guest View permissions for each Content Types in Manage Space: Permissions. The permission Space > View must also be checked. See Private Space for more details on how to make private content accessible to non-members.
When you change a sub space from a private space to a public space, permissions remain the same. A sub space with public visibility will appear in the parent space's Space Activity Stream and, if the parent space is public as well, in Search. You must change Guest Permissions for each Content Types in Manage Space: Permissions if you want to adjust view permissions after changing a sub space's visibility from private to public.
When you change a sub space from a public space to a private space, you have the option to clear all Guest permissions. A sub space with private visibility will not appear in the parent space's Activity Stream or in Search.
