About Me

I am music graduate and I provide affordable piano/keyboard lessons to young children starting from 4 years old of age.
I am a very flexible caregiver who has two years of continued childcare experience. My main concern when babysitting is to provide a fun, caring environment to the children so they can remember me when they get older. I take my job very seriously and I am always ready to help the parents. When working, I use a childcare strategy called positive reinforcement to improve a child’s behavior. I found this strategy to be the most caring and effective way to set boundaries with children. I have experience looking after children between the ages of 6 months and 11 years, and in the following settings: after-school care, before-school care, overnight, full-day, evenings, weekends, nanny housekeeper. Also, I am Portuguese so I know how to cook delicious healthy food for them :)

We found ourselves in a last minute situation and Claudia was very understanding and flexible.

It was clear from her attitude that she wanted to help to make things as easy for us as possible.

When she met our daughter, Claudia worked hard to familiarise herself and adhered very well to the guidelines which we set out.

I would gladly have her help out next time.

Claudia watched my daughters, ages 6 and 8, on a Friday evening after a last minute request. Claudia was very kind and got on well with my daughters within minutes of walking through our door. She sent me an update after the girls fell asleep. 5 stars on communication!

I highly recommend Claudia as a babysitter.

Claudia is a truly wonderful nanny. Not only was she incredibly loving and caring towards my daughter, she was also extremely responsible and took her job very seriously. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Claudia has been teaching our five-year old son playing the piano in the past few weeks. I have sat in the classes with them. I can tell that Claudia is very experienced teaching children. She is very patient and ready to adjust her teaching in order to suit our son's need and shift of attention. She seems to understand children of our son's age. My son's making steady progress under her instructions. We're very pleased to have found her to teach our son and hope that our son's interest in playing the piano will be gradually fostered and he will be learning from her for as long as possilbe. Thank you, Claudia!

On the phone, Claudia was lovely and warm and sounded like the sort of person that would be able to entertain my son in hospital while I went in for consultations.

A few minutes to the time, she called to apologise for double booking. She said she would send a friend as a replacement. This person was alright, but probably not the sort that can get the reviews that Claudia has.

Response by Claudia on 09/10/2018:

Dear Davesmom, I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. It was midnight when you booked me for the next day at 8am. I was really tired and by mistake I booked you over another babysitting. I took responsibility for my mistake and did not let you down. I woke up at 6 am and got you a fried to help you. The most important is that I helped you even though I had never done babysitting for you before. I try my best to help people and I absolutely love my jobs. 1 star is to low for the amount of work and stress this made me pass through to help you out. In the end I'm happy that everything went alright.
