Elena Gabor

Owner & Instructor

I’m an experienced childcare provider having nannied for over ten years where I worked with atypical and special needs children, ages ranging from infants to teens. I have a Bachelor of Science in Speech Pathology and Audiology that provided me a great deal of knowledge in early education and development. I believe in incorporating a varied range of learning opportunities depending on the child but prefer to use a nature involved emotional and play based curriculum.


I plan to keep our pandemic pod quite small at first (until Covid-19 policies change). That being said, our little pod will consist of three to four children from ages 2-5 for the foreseeable future. I will be using a modified version of the Torchlight curriculum for each child and age.

Given that we’re located in the beautiful town of Altadena we’ll have many opportunities to explore nature during our daily walks and outside time. Our days will mostly consist of lots of play, nature discovery, and growth development with the provided curriculum. I’ll be recording your child’s day using Brightwheel, so you feel as close as you can to your little one throughout the day. Feel free to contact me below and tell me a little about yourself and your little one!
