Our Core Values
Our Casa Familia
At Casa de Corazón, we consider all staff, children, and parents our extended family. We are committed to developing caring, loving, and genuine relationships between each and every person who comes through our centers. We pride ourselves on each family considering the teachers and members of Casa de Corazón their extended family – people they can trust to fully embrace, care for, and influence their child’s growth through the crucial development years of their early childhood.
Meet a Casa Team Member
Sorimar Santiago. I started at Casa as a lead teacher in the Infants B classroom where I worked for four years until I moved into the Center Director position in Maple Grove! I have a bachelor’s degree from Puerto Rico, which is my home country. What I love about working with children is being able to show them all my skills with music and love for art! I hope that it rubs off on them. I love seeing them grow and also being able to learn right along with them.
Meet a Casa Family
We are Reid, Lauren, and Beau Bucci. We’re Midwest natives and have been in the Twin Cities since 2016! We’ve been attending Casa for a little over three months and we absolutely love it. We are first time parents, and the teachers have been so helpful as we navigate this new world of parenthood. It was important to us to have Beau at a school that would expose him to diverse cultures, and we love the intercultural curriculum that Casa provides. It’s also really nice to get updates from his teachers throughout the day (the pictures are the best!). Beau loves going on buggy rides and bubble time in the classroom. And the activity bouncer is his favorite! When he’s not at Casa, we love going on walks around Lake Harriet and a brewery visit on sunny days.
