About Me

I am a registered childminder with the Care Inspectorate. As a teacher by training, I have more than 20 years of experience to work with children.

I am a mum of two children, an eight-year-old boy and a ten-year-old girl, and married to Thomas who works as a lecturer at the University of Glasgow. I studied education in Brasil and worked several years in schools and as a childminder and can give children the opportunity of a bilingual setting.

I am a happy and positive person who builds quickly relationships with children. I ensure that children feel safe and protected in my setting so that they can develop. We have a lot of very nice toys for kids, Lego, wood playhouse and we have a garden with a sandpit where the kids can scooter and play.

Every day we go twice to the King George V Park, just 100 meters from our house. The children see all the other kids and can enjoy being outside.

It is a non-smoking house. We don't have a pet, but two aquaria with many colourful fishes.

My Experience

I graduated as a qualified teacher and did a post-graduation for kids with special needs. After teaching in school, I was working for 3 years as an Ofsted registered childminder in Cambridge. Since three years and a half years we now live in Bearsden and I am a registered childminder for over two years. I childminded several children here and their parents are more than happy to provide a reference.

I’m a first time Mum and felt really nervous about leaving my 12 month old (especially as he is a pandemic baby and hadn’t been looked after someone else!). However, Jaci was amazing, sending me updates and photos of how he was, and was happy to accommodate his routine, even using reusable nappies. Within a week he was so happy to see her at drop-off with big smiles, and it’s clear to see she really cares about him!

We are so sad that we have to leave Jaci (we are moving house), but even in the two short months we know she has made a big impact in helping our wee one become more independent, and it’s all thanks to her wonderful care!

Jaci has been looking after our twin boys for the last number of weeks to allow us to carry out duties as key workers. From the first evening we picked them up, we knew that the boys would be happy and well taken care of, as their eyes widened when they told us what they had been doing through the day. They go to the park regularly in all weather, and have most recently enjoyed sledging (which we received photos of during the day which was great). Our boys are always moving, so ensuring that they would be kept active all day was important to us. They have also been happy to go to Jaci's house each morning, which is testament to the warm and caring environment she has created.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jaci to anyone that is looking for a childminder.

Jaci has been looking after my girls (aged 2 & 4 now) for approximately 18 months now. They are always happy to go there and Jaci keeps them active by taking them to the park often and also encourages their learning by drawing pictures and playing with play-dough. I’m kept updated by pictures of them having fun which is nice when I’m working. Most importantly I can see Jaci cares for them as she has a very caring nature. I’d highly recommended Jaci to anyone looking for a childminder.

Well, what can I say! Jaci was the right choice for us and our active 2 year old son. We had just re located and Jaci welcomed him into her family and gave him the home from home that he needed. He doted on both her children while there, and being bilingual himself he thrived in the multi cultural environment at casa da Jaci. Jaci was always very friendly and attentive to the children’s needs, keeping my son active as well as stimulating him with puzzles and books. He still is very fond of Jaci and her entire family a year since he started nursery. For us Jaci was always extremely friendly, flexible and helpful, and has become a friend. Thank you Jaci x

Thank you very much for your review!

While I lived in Cambridge, back in 2013, I got to know Jaciara and she looked after my oldest daughter, who at that time was 2 years old during a whole full year until I got my second daughter and went back to stay at home. Jaciara is a warm hearted person with a natural and kind approach towards children, my daughter felt immediately secure and was always happy there. She was always very attentive and stimulated her motor and intellectual development with a diverse of activities (parks, play groups, arts, music and so on). She cooked healthy and was flexible to adapt her routine with the needs of my daughter (for example, regarding midday nap). The interaction as a parent with Jaciara was always very friendly, respectful and helpful. I not only highly recommend her as a childminder for any parent, she also turn to be a very dear friend afterwards.
