About Me

I am seeking an morning position Mon-Fri - from.

I am reliable, organized, committed and trustworthy. I am known to be fun and energetic (I am Brazilian!).
I have a wide experience with young babies and toddlers (as young as 3 months old - up to 4 years) as I help them achieve their milestones by engaging and stimulating their senses.
I am also qualified to look after children (4 to 9 years old) as I help them with homework and imaginative playtime.
I foster their development and push them to be more independent in their routine.
In all cases, I am always looking for creative and playful activities (indoors and outdoors) to make the most out of every situation.
I am an excellent communicator and know how to set boundaries. My bachelor degree in psychology has given me tools to better understand children and set safe environments for them to fully express themselves.
Finally, if needed, I can cook healthy meals and snacks.

I am also flexible and can provide evening babysitting for parents that need a fun night out.

My Experience

February 2017 to present: Chelsea family with 2 children (3 years and 8 months)
May 2017 to July 2018: 6yo B and 9yo G
Jan 2018 to September 2019: 2yo G

As a BA Clinical Psychology graduate I’m well informed about development and understand when and what stimuli should be introduced, and how.

My Qualifications

Child First Aid course
BA Clinical Psychology (Psychoanalysis/Child Development)

Below are the latest reviews for Maria. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Maria has has sole responsibility for our 2 year old daughter since she was 6 months old.

She is wonderful with her - warm, attentive and responsible. She is flexible when possible and makes creative healthy meals without any prompting.

I leave her to her own devices as I trust her implicitly and know she uses her initiative seeking out all the good local things to do (she’s introduced me to plenty of places I never knew about!). She balances the day and week with physical activities, music, reading and play…and a lot more. She’s fun and has bags of energy which is important. That said, she’s no soft touch and sets boundaries when necessary.

My daughter is now off to nursery and I’ll be back to work f/t. We will miss Maria! I can highly recommend her to anyone looking for a proactive and trustworthy nanny and am happy to give a verbal reference to any potential employer.
