Those who want to profit on my language (both English and Portuguese ) proficiency, are encouraged to get in touch. Non English speaking kids are very welcome. as well as all little native English speakers who have been my best teachers ever. Should you happen to like what you see, don't be shy, get in touch!
* unfortunately I can only provide regular after-school services as part of some arrangement that includes full days.
temporary arrangements, such as holidays nannying, event babysitting, etc, should be booked not prior than 2 weeks in advance.
Now let me talk a bit more about myself and my experiences working with children. 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.
* Unless otherwise agreed, housework is limited exclusively to spaces related to children’s daily needs and social activities under my supervision.

Rose is a fantastic nanny. She has been very reliable, helpful, smart and has a natural connection with babies. I can only recommend her services.

Thank you, G, it was a privilege working for you. Friendly, sensitive, ethical, generous, a great person and fair employer. A Wonderful and easygoing parent too. Wish you and family all the best!
Rose has been baby sitting for my baby boy since he was 2 weeks old, she has been a great help when I really needed someone to help me, I travel a lot and I leave my baby with his father and Rose is such a great help all around
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 helped us out at the last minute and was friendly and flexible.
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.
