  About Me
 
Hello. I am a loving live out nanny with over 20 years exp. I also ran a private day-home in my Signal Hill home for 12 years where I cared for ALL ages. My bg includes BROADCASTING so I am articulate and a good communicator. As a dayhome provider I also drove some of the children to and from schools and was very involved in keeping them busy with the focus on "outdoor" activities. I love taking the children to parks, library story times, child friendly events and venues. My training and experience includes teaching dyslexic learners how to read and write. I love being around children. It's my passion to teach, mentor and guide them, but mostly to enjoy and encourage them. MY REFERENCES ARE STERLING. Please feel free to contact me with your e-mail address and I will be happy to forward my resume to you. Thank-you. Terra V.

I ran my own private day-home in Signal Hill S. W Calgary for 12 years and have over 20 yrs total childcare experience with all ages. I love to take the children to parks, libraries, playdates and "more" and am a real "cuddler. " My references are STERLING. I drive & am a non smoker. (Your nanny cameras are welcome. )

Mrs. B was one of my first child care clients back in 1997. Her infant daughter and my infant son grew up together in my day-home for many years. She retained my childcare services even after I relocated to a larger home in another Calgary neighborhood which required extensive driving on her part, until I closed my day-home in 2005. We continued to stay in touch with her family for years afterwards. Contact information will be given to employers who are taking my child care services under serious consideration.

Mrs. T was one of my first child care clients back in 1999. Her toddler and my toddler son grew up together in my day-home for many years. They retained my childcare services even after I relocated to a larger home in another Calgary neighborhood which required extensive driving on their part, until I closed my day-home in 2005. We continue to stay in touch with their family to this day. Our now adult sons remain friends.
