Heather LaCasse, founder and owner, has two successful children ages 17 and 20, and is a native of West Hartford. She has over 15 years experience in early childhood and nonprofit management. Her diversified professional background in administration, marketing/communications and passion for education, allows her to lead MIMMO to its full potential.
The vision for MIMMO came about in 2016 after her love for the Reggio Emilia approach and the idea of building a community that is inspired by a “beautiful life”. Heather was exposed heavily to the arts at an early age. Her father was a photojournalist for the New York Times and associated press; her grandparents were professional classical musicians and educators; and her mom was an early childhood educator and lover of film and literature.
