About Us

Ownership

Hi, my name is Pamela HilI, and I am the director and owner of A Child's Palace.  I am a proud mother of two wonderful boys and a wife to an amazing husband. I started my child care business in 2003 in our smaller size 2 bedroom/2 bath condo and I quickly realized how much I enjoyed teaching and caring for children. We started looking for a larger home and soon found and purchased our current 6 bedroom/3 bath home. The rest is history.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Community Health Education from CSULB and continued my education to pursue a Master of Science Degree in Health Care Management from CSULA. I am a certified trainer in Infant and Toddler Caregiving and I am also CPR and First Aid certified.

I believe that choosing a child care provider is one of the most important decisions you will make for your child and that family involvement is essential to any quality child care program. I encourage and welcome parent participation. I believe that parents are the first and primary teachers of their children and open communication makes it possible for me to work in harmony with you in the growth and development of your child. I do not consider myself a babysitter. I work as a partner with you to help your child celebrate the successes and navigate through the challenges. I feel that open and honest communication is important in order to provide your child with the best care possible.

Our School

We provide child care services in a relaxed environment where children are allowed to be children and families are always a priority. Our program offers small group sizes with a low child to teacher ratio that allows the teacher to develop a bond with each child. We incorporate activities that promote letters, numbers, shapes and color recognition, beginning writing, and math concepts. Spanish is taught as an integral part of our curriculum and is used frequently when conversing with children throughout the day.

Our program will help your child develop new skills while having fun at the same time. You will see natural development in all our children while they explore and learn about the world around them through our curriculum. The Los Angeles Steps To Excellence Program found our program to be an above average child care facility and granted us an advance rating.

Mission

A Child's Palace mission is to instill in children a life long love for learning by providing age appropriate learning material in a nurturing environment while adhering to the cultural differences of each family.

Philosophy

The staff of A Child's Palace believes in providing an environment rich in material to explore, manipulate, and talk about. Children are encouraged to question, to experiment, to think, and to reason.

Goals

  • To provide a nurturing environment to children with a focus on recognizing the individual needs of each child
  • To provide a variety of learning and recreational activities in a safe and loving environment
  • To provide opportunities for children to grow and develop through activities that are stimulating, age appropriate and safe

Children are great imitators; always give them something great to imitate.
