Hello, my name is Pamela and I am the owner and operator of Love & Learning Family Child Care. The children in my day care call me Ms. Pam, so you can too! I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I am a natural with children, and I love watching them learn, grow and develop into their own uniqueness. I am very patient, and have a very mild-mannered, easy-going personality. Kind, loving and caring are all words often used to describe me. I am also very detail-oriented and thrive on organization. I have over 21 years of experience in the field of Early Childhood Education. I have experience both as a child care provider, and as a preschool owner, director and teacher. Just as equally important, I have 25 years of on-the-job experience as a mother to three wonderful children!
My husband, children and I moved to Georgia from California. In California, I operated a successful in-home child care facility (Patterson Family Day Care) for a total of 6 years. I also owned and operated an accomplished commercial child care center (Little Scholars Learning Academy) for about the same amount of time.
Locally, I worked as an Assistant Director at Kids R' Kids before deciding to quit my job and open Love & Learning Family Child Care. This decision has allowed me to earn a decent living, spend more quality time with my own children, and to do what I do best: teaching, nurturing, and caring for children of all ages!
My additional qualifications and credentials include a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism and Business Marketing; an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education; a California Child Development Teaching Credential; a CDA (Child Development Associate); CPR & first aid certification; and a local and national criminal background clearance.
I am a member of several child care associations, and I take training classes on an on-going basis. My future goals are to obtain a master's degree in Early Childhood Education, and to become a state and nationally accredited child care facility.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, baking and reading. I also enjoy shopping at garage sales and consignment stores. On the weekends, I like spending quality time with my husband and children. As a family, we enjoy going to the movies, traveling, and visiting amusement and water parks. I look forward to meeting you and your family in the near future.
