About Me

My name is Silvia (35), and I’m from Italy. I have worked with children for about 10 years, as a NANNY and a TEACHER.

I moved to Edinburgh 3 years ago with my husband (Teaching Fellow at the University of Edinburgh). We love this city and we decided to settle here.

My mother tongue is ITALIAN. I love flowers, music, spending time outdoors, writing and baking. :)

My Experience

I have worked with children of different ages for about 10 years:

- as a NANNY since I moved to Edinburgh, with children between 6 months and 10 years of age;

- as a TEACHER OF MUSIC EDUCATION and VIOLIN in private and public nurseries/schools, when I lived in Italy (I have completed the “Orff-Schulwerk Elemental Education in Music and Dance” training course, which is a specific methodology to teach Music to children);

- as an ITALIAN LANGUAGE TEACHER and TEACHING ASSISTANT (Girotondo Italian School - Edinburgh).


Previous experience as a NANNY with:

- Sophie (10 mo --> 3y) and Sandy (2y --> 4½y)
- Jacopo (6 mo --> 10 mo)
- Giulia (5y --> 7y)
- Francesca (3y), Giacomo (7y) and Gabriele (8y)
- Layla (4y), Isaac (7y) and Jamie (10y)



“Silvia is a quiet person. She exudes calmness, which is excellent if you have active children, as I do. At the same time, she is a lot of fun, and children are never bored with her. She clearly enjoys her job and is keen to come up with lots of different arts-and-crafts activities, while also making sure that children spend some time outdoors every day.”

“She was always on time to pick up from school and nursery and was able to work flexibly to my working needs.”

“Silvia managed to keep my 10, 7 and 4 year old entertained which is not always an easy task. She regularly bakes, plays games, teaches them Italian words, does craft work and some outdoor Park time when weather permits .
She also serves the children their dinner and encourages them to do homework and change into nightwear etc .”

“Silvia worked with my children for over two years. I was completely satisfied with her child minding, not only because she was always punctual, reliable and efficient, but also because my children always looked forward to seeing her — and still do!”
