Founded in 2002, Casa de Corazón is a provider of Spanish-immersion, early learning programs for preschool children throughout Minneapolis. It recently opened its mother’s room in Maple Grove, a dedicated space where parents and employees can breastfeed or pump in comfort and privacy. The mother’s room was furnished with prizes earned by winning a contest by Healthy Horizons, a national provider of corporate lactation services.
Natalie Standridge, Founder and CEO of Casa de Corazón says, “As early childhood education providers, we are dedicated to the optimal health and positive development of the children in our communities. We know that supporting the breastfeeding moms that are both enrolled with us and employed by us is paramount to public health and to the work-life balance of new moms returning to work. We are proud to help moms provide the best nutrition and immune system support for their babies through breastfeeding by providing safe, clean and comfortable spaces for nursing and pumping, as well as safe storage and handling of breast milk in our infant classrooms and now, new breast milk only refrigerator. Our sincere gratitude goes out to Health Horizons for their tangible support of this important effort!".
