Hello , it's quite a pleasure to meet you.

Carole Cablk

Owner, Creator & “Head Momma in Charge”
Carole is mother of two very energetic boys, ages 6 and 3. She had the idea for Pamper & Play when she left her traditional 9 to 5 job as a creative director to become a freelance graphic designer and work from home mom. Carole also taught parent and tot classes at YMCA LA when her children were toddlers. She loves children and understands the challenges of raising them at a time when the roles of moms and dads are changing. “I used to dream of place where I could drop in and relax or get some work done while my kids had a blast! So I created it. When you have toddler boys, you need someone to keep an eye on your children who really cares so you can get some peace. Whether you are a stay at home mom, work from home parent or working parent, it’s nice to be able to depend on quality help from time to time.” Carole has completed 24 hours of PET Parent Effectiveness Training.

Miss Chelle

Play Supervisor and “”
Carole is a freelance graphic designer and the mother of two boys who is also passionate about helping other parents and creating a fun, interactive and community environment for kids. Five years ago, when she left the traditional workforce to become a work-from-home mom, Carole had a realization:

“Naively I thought working from home would be the best of both worlds. But I quickly realized that juggling a full work schedule, two children and housework would not be so easy. I used to dream of a comfortable, clean place where I could work while my children were having fun and playing. Better yet, the idea of having some ‘helpers’ around who could make sure the kids were safe and happy while I sent a few emails or worked on a last minute deadline would be a GODSEND. Nothing like that existed, so I created it! I truly believe that EVERY parent needs a break: moms, dads, working parents AND especially stay at home parents. Parenting is the hardest job on the planet and the only way to do it effectively is to take care of YOURSELF!”
