Childcare center in Indian housing complex offers haven
Parents at an Indian housing complex in Minneapolis, Minnesota, are finding a safe place for their infants and toddlers.

Baby's Space at the Little Earth Neighborhood Learning Center provides childcare services for children from birth to age five.

"This is a place where they can be themselves. They are here to learn things that are important in their lives right now, like their colors and shapes," Jenni Bruce, a 20-year-old mother, told The Minneapolis Star Tribune. "We're not rushing them to grow up."

Baby's Space is also home to Tatanka Academy, a year-round public school for students pre-kindergarten to third grade.
