Congratulations to Kiddieville Upscale Children’s Resale for receiving certification as a silver-level I am a Healthy Start Employer for creating a culture of health and wellbeing for families in the workplace!
The certification is awarded to employers that work hard to ensure families receive the support and education they need before, during and after pregnancy. There are three levels of certification: Bronze, Silver & Gold. Certification is based on a self-assessment completed with I am a Healthy Start Employer staff.
To receive the silver-level certification, Kiddieville Upscale Children’s Resale met requirements around breastfeeding; information and resources; policies; and child care, including providing a lactation space, having a family-friendly policies and providing resources to employees.
Owner Gretrell Marshall is particularly dedicated to ensuring moms and babies are healthy — she worked at one time in the Healthy Start program in Broward and Duval counties. Kiddieville, whose customers are mostly pregnant or new moms, will also extend the education and resources offered as part of the certification to anyone who comes into the shop. There is also a private lactation space for both staff and employees and a written breastfeeding policy.
