Hello Mums and Dads,
Many Thanks for visiting my profile. Are you looking for regular 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 include emergency care, ad hoc helping, hotel babysitting, short breaks in the UK, events babysitting, as well as full days/ on a part time basis. Families with babies, toddlers, and young children, in general, are welcome. Should you happen to like my profile, don't be shy, get in touch!

* No regular after-school services provided unless it includes regular full days during term time.
**temporary arrangements, holidays nannying, event babysitting should be booked not more than 2 weeks in advance. Temporary roles must not last longer than a few weeks.

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.

My Experience

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.

* Unless otherwise agreed, housework is limited exclusively to spaces related to children’s daily needs and social activities under my supervision.

I had Rose babysit for me this weekend. I have to boys and one who is a very hyper boy. She was very kind and patient with my boys. My boys took to her very well. Would highly recommend.

Rose was amazing with my 3 month old baby. She played with him, being mindful of various developmental milestones. She was clean, flexible with our schedule and prompt. The baby loved being with her.

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.
