About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

Dear family,

I moved to Peterborough last July from London and have spaces available!
Book your visit now!


I'm Ofsted Registered Childminder. We are an originally family from Brazil. We speak English and portuguese at home. I live with my husband who works as delivery driver and also has a sushi delivery business. He is also registered as my assistant and works with me on the busiest days of the week, with my son Giuseppe who is 12 years old, my little one Anthonella she's 8 years old, my step daughter Beatriz who is 17 years old and my puppy Sushi she's a Shit zu and she is 9 months and love children.

I know how hard is to find a childminder to leave our little ones and I know because I did once! Specially when we are looking for a second home for our children. That's why I'm inviting you to come meet me and my family.

My work is based home from home, the children are free to play indoor and outdoor and choose the activities then I can work with them on the that activities. I look after then and welcome them as part of my family.

I also attends childminder play groups, play pen, playgroups and parks.

I do fresh home made meals every day for the children.

Since the age of 25 I have worked with children and I have been lucky to enjoy the responsibility that this brings. Apart from working as a sole charge nanny I have also cared for my friend’s daughter. She’s now 12 years old, I have a lot of relevant baby experience and I feel comfortable to looking after babies as well as toddlers and school aged children. I have always been a trusted employee until I started to work on my own as a Childminder in 2011.


I look forward to hearing from you.


Fernanda Antonio

We have been so lucky to have Fernanda as our daughters childminder. Fernanda looked after our daughter from 14 months to 21 months and she thrived in the 7 months that she was with Fernanda.

Fernanda and her family are so welcoming, kind, nurturing and her setting was a true home from home. We did not have any worries leaving our daughter with Fernanda and would recommend Fernanda to everyone and anyone. She provides nutritious meals, fun activities and many additional extras that she does without thought.

Our daughter loved going to Fernanda's and after the initial settling in period would happily walk/run in without looking back at us to say goodbye, she would literally run in to Fernanda's house to see Fernanda and her family. Fantastic service and can't speak highly enough about the childcare provisions, development, and genuine care that she received.

Finally the little dog Sushi is so cute and amazing with children, our daughter loved playing with Sushi and still walks around with a toy dog under her arm referring to Sushi.

In only 7 months the impact Fernanda and her family had on our little daughter is astonishing. I am so sad that Fernanda moved to Peterborough, London's loss is Peterborough's gain.

I knew immediately when I visited Fernanda for the first time that my daughter would be happy with her and her family, and she really was! She went to Fernanda’s for over 2 years (ages 1-3) and it was best childcare decision I could have made at this important time in her (and our!) life. She was safe and loved and made great friends and had so much fun-she often didn’t want to leave at the end of the day! 2 years later she still talks about her and how she misses going there. We are very sad to see the family leave the area but will stay in touch. Highly recommend Fernanda and her lovely family to anyone looking for a warm and wonderful childminder, and happy to answer any questions / provide a reference.

My son (5) and daughter (8) have been going to Fernanda’s setting for the last year after school. Fernanda is an absolute gem - she is calm, loving, kind, generous and inclusive. Her family are also amazing. My son loves Fernanda’s mother in law and husband. The thing that struck me about Fernanda’s setting from day one was how calm it is and how happy the kids are. Fernanda is very creative and we have had some super Easter, Christmas, mother/ Father’s Day crafted gifts that we adore and will reuse. Fernanda has lots of great toys as well as supervised water play in the hotter months. It is great to see kids of all ages playing together and being kind and supportive to each other - this is very much fostered by Fernanda. I would be happy to act as a reference for Fernanda if you were considering her a childminder. We will miss you guys loads Fernanda and family xxx

Fernanda looked after my 11 month ok’d and my 2 year old until late 2013. During that time my boys were made part of the family. They were taken care of by everyone in the family. Fernanda’s calm, patient and fair approach to child minding meant that her similarly aged children grew up as friends of our boys. They had great fun in her clean, child friendly setting, which she constantly updates and rearranged to create new exploration opportunities.
During their time with Fernanda they were happy, well fed, sage and thriving.
Anyone who gets Fernanda to take care of their children can ensure their child’s early years development will be secure in her care.

Fernanda has taken care of my youngest daughter for a year and a half now since she was just under a year old. My eldest daughter who is 6 has also spent time with Fernanda over the school holidays.

Fernanda has built up lovely relationships with my daughters and is always happy, enthusiastic and patient with them. The children light up in the morning when they arrive. Even at 11 months old my daughter was happy and settled and was never upset at drop off time. My older daughter is always asking if she can spend the day with her.

The children spend time having fun and developing creative skills with lots of crafts. There are plenty of toys and resources for them to play with. They celebrate holidays and events together and have seasonal activities like water play and a paddling pool in the summer. They go on trips to local playgrounds and skate parks.

Fernanda's home is clean and well organised. She provides homecooked fresh food.

Fernanda's family are lovely, inclusive and obviously enjoy being around the children. There is a genuine family atmosphere. My children are very happy and excited to see them, especially Antonella 8 years old, who loves the younger children and is very kind and nurturing.

We feel incredibly lucky to have had Fernanda looking after our daughters and she will be greatly missed. If she wasn't moving from our area we would have continued with her at least until my younger daughter went to school.
