Gladys' Family Childcare Center
Providing a warm and safe setting and welcoming children is the goal of Gladys’ Family Childcare Center. Ms. Sauceda-Flores states: “It is with all my enthusiasm and caring support that I am committed to serve our local families. I am taking excellent care of the health and wellbeing of our children, who are the most precious for all of us. With firsthand experiences, as a breastfeeding mother along with my professional commitment, I am supporting families with the best nutrition and development environment for their children.”
With those words, Ms. Sauceda-Flores has opened her home to welcome babies and breastfeeding mothers into her care. She believes breastmilk is the best way to give any child a healthy and productive start. In her own words “As a childcare provider who supports families to continue breastfeeding when they go back to work, I am providing a higher quality of care for our babies.” The lactation space that she has designated is purposely in a quiet area, but is also easily accessible. Ms. Sauceda-Flores continuously updates her resources in order to provide a current and safe environment for families. She utilizes hands-on playing and learning activities, and provides children opportunities to learn through socialization in friendly surroundings. We should strive to Ms. Sauceda-Flores’ quality of care in every community, and we welcome her designation and partnership into our Breastfeeding Friendly San Diego (Pro-Lactancia) program. Congratulations Gladys Sauceda-Flores!
