Meet the Team

Dedicated & Certified


Mrs. Gloria 

Owner/Certified Childcare Director

Infants & Toddlers, Preschool and School Age 

Welcome! To Palmer’s Heavenly Hearts Family Childcare LLC. I love my chosen profession and believe that there is no greater feeling than knowing that you aided in the learning and growth of a child. What I enjoy most is seeing the expression of a child who has just discovered something new and wonderful for the first time. There is nothing better than when they are able to perform a new skill without assistance for the first time.

I have been caring for children for 16 years; first caring for my own children Elijah 16, Serenity 13 and Jasiah 7, and working with pre-k students as an Instructional Assistant at Easton Elementary School.  I’m married to my wonderful husband Thomas who is my greatest supporter of my daycare journey. I grew up in Talbot County and educated within the Talbot County public school system. I have my Associates Degree in Health Services Administration and continued my studies with Wilmington University for my Bachelor’s degree in Health Management.  I also hold childcare certifications from Howard Community College in the areas of Director of Childcare, Infant and Toddler, and Childcare Lead Preschool teacher and recently certified for School Age with in Childcare.  I strive to improve the quality of the services I provide to my clients as a Professional Early Educator by staying current on childcare laws and regulations, advocating for early childhood education, and learning new, exciting, and stimulating teaching methods and activities.
