Blend of Branford Expands
Creative Space
D
aniela Balzano, owner of Blend for Kids, an environ-
mentally-friendly creative wellness center for children
on the Branford Green, recently celebrated the center’s first
anniversary and has expanded the facility. The space now
includes a massage room and a yoga room for parents and
children. With a goal to surround children with a low technol-
ogy, highly creative atmosphere, the center offers classes from
breast feeding support, yoga and massage, to arts, music and
theater lessons, and a Green Living workshop for teens. There
are also children’s summer camp sessions, each with a different
focus, such as Going Green, Exploring Dreams, or Sewing for
Beginners. Blend is the first business in Connecticut to allow
nursing moms to use their facility from off the street. Conscious
of practicing what they teach about going green, staff uses all
recycled materials, and the center was built in an eco-friendly
fashion. Daniela has a degree in natural therapeutics and a BS
in biology. While her education has always been based in the
sciences, her love for art and creation has always remained
alive. Blend for Kids was born out of the desire to share her
passion for all things creative.
Blend operates throughout the year. Hours are Monday
through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is located at 1120
Main Street in Branford, CT. For more information, contact
