Education is one of the most important aspects of a child’s life. They’ll spend most of their first 18 years learning. So, a parent’s choice of educator is important.
Natalie Standridge, creator of Casa de Corazón, says, “I wanted a program that was environmentally conscious, healthy and culturally relevant. I had the qualifications, so I just went for it.”
Standridge’s Casa de Corazón is an early learning school, preparing children for kindergarten in a unique way. Not only is everything environmentally friendly, the little ones are taught Spanish and encouraged to be curious and playful.
With one location already established near 50th and France, a second Edina location is set to open in the Parklawn neighborhood this spring.
“Demand was really high there, and the reception has been great,” says Standridge. “There’s often a familial-like connection with the parents and staff, and it’s amazing.”
