Hi, my name is Erica!
I am 33 years old and I come from Italy.
I guess I am a funny, friendly, kind, caring, polite, loveable, reliable and trustworthy person. I am clean, tidy and a non-smoker.
I love children and working with them is a pleasure.
I am really glad to fill my working days/evenings with educational and fun activities, I also like to plan my activities with children around what they enjoy.
I love to sing, dance and read stories with the children. I enjoy getting out with them during the daylight in places like parks, play centres, playgroups, zoo etc. I love doing creative activities with children, such as messy-play, painting, playing-doh and cooking activities. Usually I took care of everything related to the child: games, meals, personal hygiene, bring the child to the activities (music, dance, swim, etc). I am also great with all pets, especially dogs.
I am a native Italian speaker and I am also fluent in English, French, German and Spanish. I am particularly skilled in teaching bi-lingual children whilst babysitting and I have a lot of experience with this.
I have lived in the UK since January 2016 and this is my permanent home. I have great checkable references from past and present parents, this is one of the best ways for the parents to find out about the care I'm providing.
I am also OFSTED registered.
I’ve more than fourteen years experience with children from 0 to 14 years and solid checkable references to back this up.
I have newborn experience and feel very comfortable caring with newborns.
I also have experience with children in group and twins.
I also have experience with special needs children and I fell comfortable to work with them.
In the past years I gained experience as a night nanny and sleep consultant too.
I have CACHE Level 3 Diploma for the Early Years Workforce, degree in social work, specialised in child care, pediatric first aid training, anaphylaxis first aid training, learn to read certificate, nutrition certificate, children safeguarding certificate, level 4 sleep consultant certificate and I have level 4 maternity nurse certificate in progress.
I worked for six months in Spain as a nanny with an English family.
I worked in a daycare center and in a children game room for long time as educator.
I worked in Switzerland since September 2013 to November 2015 with a 9 months girl as a live in nanny/night nanny.
I worked in Liverpool since January 2016 to October 2016 as a nanny share/night nanny with a 9 months old boy and a 8 months old girl.
I worked since November 2016 to June 2018 as a full time head nanny/night nanny with a 5 years old boy, 2 years old boy, 2 years old girl and 10 months old girl.
I ran "Italian rhyme time" session at Woking library since October 2018 to April 2019.
I worked as a nanny/night nanny/PA/ special needs assistant since July 2018 to February 2020 with a 2 years old boy (special needs and extra care due to a serious health condition)and a 5 years old boy.

Erica has been our nanny for over a year now, both live in & live out. Our kids absolutely love her, as do we, and she always goes above and beyond in her role. Our children have severe allergies and I always know I can trust her with them in her care. She is highly educated & very professional. We are relocating overseas and have asked her to move with us but unfortunately she is unable to due to family reasons. If you decided to hire Erica it will be the best hire you make. Please ask Erica for my contact details if you require a reference.
Erica came to babysit our 6 year old daughter. We were very pleased as she got involved immediately and developed a rapor with her so we felt very confident about going out and leaving her in charge. Our daughter took an instant shine to Erica - great
Erica has babysat for our son many times since January 2016. Our son is half-Italian so we have asked for Erica to also teach him Italian, he now understands Italian as well as English. Erica is punctual, well-presented and professional. She has an excellent knowledge of child-development and genuine enthusiasm and passion for teaching and caring for children. I always feel safe and happy when Erica is babysitting and my son adores her. I would not hesitate to recommend Erica to anyone else.
