Meet Sherry

I am a trustworthy and nurturing lady who loves children. There is nothing like the spontaneous love and affection of a child. I have a vast amount of experience with children and know I am truly gifted and blessed with providing quality care. I grew up babysitting my younger siblings at a very early age. My first overnight babysitting job took place when I was 13 years old. I have cared for many children throughout the years. I've also raised my wonderful daughter, now 21 and in college. I am very good with newborns and usually have a great comfort level with babies... more
I am a trustworthy and nurturing lady who loves children. There is nothing like the spontaneous love and affection of a child. I have a vast amount of experience with children and know I am truly gifted and blessed with providing quality care. I grew up babysitting my younger siblings at a very early age. My first overnight babysitting job took place when I was 13 years old. I have cared for many children throughout the years. I've also raised my wonderful daughter, now 21 and in college. I am very good with newborns and usually have a great comfort level with babies and children of all ages, and they are generally very comfortable with me. I am very loving and nurturing, and also lots of fun. I have provided care to a child with ADHD. I have provided care to children overnight (sometimes extended into multiple days) while parents traveled out of the city. Overnights have been in my home as well as the parents' home. Childcare is a rewarding experience and it can be exhilarating. My usual rate is usually a minimum of $15/hr, however I sometimes charge less if the job is for several hours and/or overnight, and extended days.

Keely M. says:
I interviewed Sherry and she seems like a very sweet and genuine caregiver.

Sherry L. responds:
I did spend quite some time with Keely and her beautiful 9-month-old baby girl but have not had the opportunity to take care of her baby yet. It is such a blessing to recognize that she took the time to post something nice solely based on our extended meet and greet. I definitely look forward to taking care of E. soon on an occasional basis.
Mark J. says:
Sherry was flexible to our last minute scheduling request and was very pleasant to be with. My daughter had no anxiety when alone with Sherry as she has a very welcoming personality. My daughter enjoyed her time with Sherry and still talks about putting princess stickers all over her.

Melinda G. says:
Sherry has cared for my 9 month old son since for about 7 months. I was impressed from the start. She took initiative right away in helping with the baby. She changed him and held him during the entire interview. He was so comfortable with her because he cooed and fell right to sleep in her arms. She interacts with the baby; from playing games on the floor with him to singing songs while giving him is bottle.... More

Jessica B. says:
Sherry has cared for my 9 month old daughter several times over the last few months. She is a reliable, caring and understanding lady. My daughter tends to be a difficult baby, but I never worry when Sherry is caring for her. I hope to continue our relationship for years to come!

Amanda H. says:
Sherry cared for my three children ages 7, 2 and 1, and they loved her. She came through for my family even though I needed her for a long day she didn't have a problem. She is a very kind person and you can tell that she genuinely enjoys children and is not just doing it for money alone. I definitely recommend her.

Sherry L. responds:
I was so surprised and touched upon seeing this review. It always means a lot to receive a review from a parent acknowledging I am good with their children and that I truly enjoy them.
Sandy U. says:
I have to say that I am very disappointed with Sherry. I interviewed her on the phone the other day and she seemed very nice and responsible. I set up an interview with her and 15 minutes before she was due to show, she called and cancelled. I have to say it was for a good reason, a sick friend but some warning more that 15 minutes would have been nice as I planned my day around her visit and made sure all... More

Sherry L. responds:
I am sad to say what Sandy said is true. I did have a friend who was sick and had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. She ended up having to have surgery. My favororite uncle in Tennessee also died on the rescheduled date. I was overwhelmed and I just plain forgot about my appointment with Sandy. I am very embarrassed that this situation happened and communicated what had taken place. She was very kind,... More
Marlene G. says:
Sherry took care of our two children, aged 2 and 3 when we evacuated to Houston for Hurricane Isaac. She was responsive, punctual and very loving with the kids who took to her immediately. The job was made more difficult being in a hotel, but she arrived with goody bags for them, read to them, colored with them, and played games, they napped and ate well for her and they were tired out when we got home from...

Heather F. says:
Sherry has been taking care of my two children, ages 8 and 10, whenever I go out of town. She handles everything: homework, dinner, outings, bedtime, and even getting them ready for school in the mornings. I feel very secure knowing my children are being cared for by Sherry. She is incredibly generous, caring, responsible, friendly and committed. Best of all, she is truly willing to invest herself in the kids'... More

Jennifer P. says:
Sherry kept our 2 1/2-year-old son three days a week so mommy could have a little time. She is a sweet Christian lady who loves children. She always brought my son little gifts and he instantly bonded with her. My older son in kindergarten would get home right before Sherry left and he was very fond of her, too, because she would give him a little gift to make him feel loved and so he wouldn't be jealous. She... More

Trish M. says:
Sherry recently took care of my three children, ages 6, 4, and 2. She arrived on time, adjusted her schedule to stay late if I needed her to, and did whatever she could to help me out. She spent quality time with my children--reading to them, coloring with them, and playing games. I trusted her to give me an accurate account of the day's events. Sherry is a trustworthy, kind hearted person, whom I would definitely... More

Jennifer N. says:
Sherry has worked for our family when needed and takes excellent care of our children - son 4 months and daughter 3 yrs old. My daughter always asks about Miss Sherry and when she is coming back to visit her. Sherry is always on time, very reliable, and when I returned from work gave me an accurate recount of the day. Whenever I call to check on how things are going, she answers the phone and tells me exactly... More

Sherry L. responds:
I appreciate this review and all reviews so much. For you mothers out there with young babies, her children weren't quite 2 months old and 3 years old yet when I first began caring for them.
Christina P. says:
Sherry was a temporary caregiver for our daughter that was sick. She was on time, spent a great deal of one on one time with our daughter playing games.

She replied very fast to our job posting, and was really reliable.

Kim S. says:
Sherry watched our 2 boys so we could have a date night. She brought goodies and even got them to take a bath. Our 2 year old can be challenging, but she hung in there and got them to sleep and even cleaned up!

Thanks so much - she did a great job for us!

Kaia L. says:
Sherry is a very honest, kind, and loving person. My six year old loved her. She came through in a pinch and really went the extra mile by bringing some craft projects for she and my daughter to do together. They had a lot of fun, and my daughter asked the next day when Sherry would be coming back!
