About Me

I am Maria. I am 25 years old, married, I come from the Southeast of Brazil, living in UK for four years.

I'm creative, excited and very comunicative person. I speak Brazilian Portuguese (native language), English (lower advanced C1) Italian (elementary A2)

I started study and work with children since 2017, my pleasure is work with them. I am qualified to work with special needs children and they will always be my priority. I appreciate and follow Maria Montessori Theory to encourage the child development independent of place, age or needs.

I love spend time with fun activities: crafting, imaginative play, painting, coloring, drawing, reading, singing, dancing, depending on what each child like. I’m always encourage the children to spend time with stimulating activities.

Maria is great fun to have around - my children love spending time with her, especially my son who is visually impaired and has complex needs. She provided appropriately pitched engaging activities for the children, which they really enjoyed. She is very helpful and always cleans up really well. Her communications are good and she goes the extra mile to be helpful. We would recommend Maria :-)

Maria is a wonderful person. Always in time, she comes with a smile and my daughter truly loves her. She is a gentle and thoughtful person, fast learner and has a special relationship with children. She is tidy and clean and even if she is young she is very experienced. My daughter has special needs and she is just brilliant with her, she made her walk on her own and more. I can't recommend her enough!!

Maria was very accommodating to my needs and my baby's. She is a gentle and thoughtful person who does her best to ensure baby is getting everything he needs. She is great with meal times of my 11 months baby boy, managed to keep all baby areas very neat and tidy. Managed to keep nap times regular and went out for walks with my baby. She took the initiative to reorganise baby area in montessori style which I appreciated a lot. She is a great mother's help too and she will be missed.

This is the second time Maria has stayed with my children and as always Maria was friendly, kind, quick, professional and accommodating for all the things you need from a babysitter. Maria also kept me updated so I knew everything was fine at home with the kids.
I would not hesitate to recommend Maria.
