Fernanda looked after my three children aged between 5 and 14, both after school, and then during the holidays for the whole day. She was always on time, had no days off sick, and was unfailingly positive, professional and enthusiastic.
I would recommend her wholeheartedly.
She related to all the children individually despite the range in ages, and they loved her.
Highlights for us were Nanda searching out new activities for every visit such as doodling books and colouring, making Brazilian cakes for the children’s birthday and me returning from work to find them all learning how to cartwheel!
We would still have her working for us if it weren’t for a change in circumstances with jobs and schools.
Happy to recommend without hesitation

Fernanda was a fantastic nanny to my two boys aged 5 and 3. They absolutely loved her. She was so playful and fun, yet professional and patient at the same time. She is clearly a childcare professional and a cut above many of childcare experiences I have had. She was always on time and conscientious about her work. My little one sometimes had difficult moods and she handled them so well - she was patient and caring but without giving in. Also, she helped my older one with his reading as he was a little behind at school which made a real difference. I also left her alone overnight with them when I needed to travel for work - I completely trusted her. I cannot recommend Fernanda enough. In fact, I wish she had not moved away!
