Meet Terri

I have three grown children of my own.  I am responsible, engaging, intuitive and flexible when taking care of children.  I love being a part of children’s learning and discovery of life.  I believe in outside play in the fresh air, a healthy diet and minimal TV and computer games but of course honor each parent's guidance for their own children.   I taught beginning and competitive swimming to children of all ages, taught piano lessons, and was always involved in classroom-mother activities.  I love the excitement and wonderment children bring to each day. Interestingly my caring and insightful qualities have extended to my daughter, who works with special needs children.

Terri has been sitting for us for over a year on mornings when I travel. My kids love her - we all do, actually. She is reliable, trustworthy, neat, pleasant, calm, smart, friendly...everything you could want. I'd recommend Terri to anyone.
