Hello dear Parents
Many Thanks to all of you who take an interest in my profile. Are you looking for part-time or temporary full time Childcare? If so, You’ve come to the right place! My name is Rose Santos and I cater for a wide range of demands, which includes (but is not limited to) emergency care, ad hoc helping, hotel babysitting, short breaks in the UK, events babysitting, etc. Families with babies, toddlers, and young children, in general, are welcome.
*** After school positions will only be considered if the total number of hours don’t exceed a maximum of 3 days. Not suitable for Monday-to-Friday. Any arrangement involving less than 5 hours daily will impar higher rates.
** Short term or temporary arrangements, holidays nannying, event babysitting should be booked not earlier than 2 weeks prior the starting date.
I am very well educated and bilingual professional with experience in the field of childcare and infants education, with a keen interest in child development. I am originally from Brazil, where I used to work as a graduated primary and high school teacher, as well as other children’s related activities. My approach to childcare is essentially from a place of service. My aim is to help people, offering the best of my skills to make the world a better place. I have a very child-centered approach, focusing on their global development; being 100% child-led, I pay a careful attention to attachment and have a natural inclination to encourage bonding. Trust is the heart and soul of my work philosophy in childcare, as I believe that a strong and harmonic relationship with the parents is the ground for building a stimulating environment for the children.
On a personal level, I like to believe that I am of a humble, honest and enthusiastic nature, who is kind to all creatures, especially the little or vulnerable ones. I am also a very positive, good-natured, conscientious, and nurturing person, who is genuinely in love with the little ones. I truly believe in kindness, compassion, generosity, and integrity.
I am into humanities; literature, arts, science, sports, as well as meditation, self-awareness, human development and pretty much everything that a creative mind can reach are dear to me. I am also deeply connected to nature and fond of a healthy lifestyle as well as sustainability, DIY ethics, and environmental awareness. I do love languages. Portuguese is my mother tongue, but I also speak some Spanish and have a platonic love with French. English is by far my (second) favorite one. I have a good command of English, although far from being perfect fluency. However, my native fluency in Brazilian Portuguese can make your little one acquainted with this language unless you clearly determine otherwise.
If my profile resonates with you and my availability fits into your requirements, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I am always happy to hear from like-minded and well-educated families in need of childcare.
I would say that I have a lifetime history of caring for and educating children. Back home I used to work as a primary and high school teacher; private tutor, volunteering with teenagers and helping to bring up my nephews. Moving to London, I had the opportunity to work with
children in home-based care. I entered in the field of childcare in 2011, when I first came to London to study English. Then, I worked for about 2 years as a nanny and tutor, looking after young children, especially babies and toddlers. Upon my return in Brazil, I worked as a consultant, mentor, life and career coach, coming back to London in 2015, as an academic visitor, to work in a project under the tutorship of a renowned English scholar. Since then, I have been doing part-time childcare, mostly working with small babies, toddlers and young children in general.
I started helping with a down syndrome teenager girl, then I worded as a helper in a child-minding set - where I discovered how good a connection I managed to establish with babies and toddlers - then, moving on to providing sole charge services both as an after- school nanny and looking after babies and young children. I have a slight preference for working with early years (0-5), but older kids are always welcome.

Rose took care of our two children for 3 nights this week while we were visiting London. She was easy to work with, on time, and communicative throughout the booking process. It was a pleasure to know that our kids were in good hands and to find someone to trust so far away from home. I would definitely recommend her to any family looking for a kind, experienced, sitter.
We have very lively twin boys of 17 months. Rose stepped in at relatively short notice in Feb/March 2019 to provide about a weeks+ worth of help for us. She was very enthusiastic and able to cope with our boys very well despite them being in a majorly clingy and very active phase. She helped out however she could to make things work and took the boys for walks or entertained them in the house with imagination. Would very happily use Rose's services again when back in London. We recommend her highly.
Rose is a great nanny with positive attitude and lots of energy. She’s reliable, responsible and always on time. My little one enjoys spending fun times with Rose and she engages his mind with creative activities such as drawing, painting and reading. I’d recommend her without hesitation.
Rose was a gem. She was punctual and incredibly kind. My son took to her immediately. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great sitter!
Rose took care of our 16 month old daughter at our hotel room. We only booked 24 hours in advance but she was happy to help. She was good with the baby, gave us updates via text as requested, and got our jet lagged and cranky girl to sleep on time! Would recommend.
