About Me

( Dear parents,
I keep my profile up to date, so can I kindly ask please to read my profile and only get in touch if the role you are offering is relevant to the type of jobs I am looking for. Thank you very much. )

Dear Parents,

My name is Silvia, I am 31 years old and I've been living in UK for the past 10 years. All this time I've been working as a nanny, looking after children aged 0 (newborns) to 12 years old.

Working with children is a really enjoyable job, a positive environment and natural affection. I have looked after active children and I had to make sure they are engaged in many activities, keep them well occupied during the day. As well I used to work with children with autism and they needed some extra attention and care. It was a very touching experience.

Incredibly intelligent and cheeky, kids are a challenge sometime, but it is amazing to see how they develop feelings and shape personalities and our quality care is vital. With them I had enhanced my creativity and stimulated theirs too- they get bored so fast sometime, I always have to come up with new interesting games to keep them focused. With the families I used to work we developed a great friendship and I still help them occasionally, when they need some extra help.

About myself, I'm a happy and easygoing person, with academic and artistic skills, responsible, trustworthy and mature. I am a good timekeeper, tidy, reliable and I don't smoke. My responsibilities can also include cleaning, organizing laundry, ironing, hovering, etc. Also the families I work for have recommended me to their friends and so I have a little network of families I do evening babysitting for.
My main expectation as a nanny is to work for a nice and kind family who consider the nanny not only as an employee, but a friend to look after their children.
I can provide excellent UK references.

Silvia looked after my 22month old son and her warm approach made it easy for him to get comfortable with her very quickly. She read him stories and he fell asleep in no time. Silvia is very professional and i will recommend her services.

Silvia was fantastic from the start to finish. She stayed overnight on New Year's Eve to look after our 3 girls aged, 8, 9 and 11 years old. The girls were a bit nervous as they didn't meet Silvia before but she quickly put all their nervousness to rest. Our impression of Silvia upon meeting her is that she is a warm and welcoming person. Also really professional. She took care of the girls the next morning while we were able to catch up on some much needed sleep after getting in quite late. The girls can be quite noisy/boisterous generally and particularly in the morning but with Silvia we didn't hear a peep out of them.
The girls really warmed to Silvia in a short space of time and wanted to know when she'll look after them next! Thank you Silvia for making it possible for us to go out on New Year's Eve and have a wonderful night with friends knowing the girls are in very capable hands.

My wife and I enlisted Silvia to look after our infant son three days a week during a three-month period in London. She also came over on many evenings for babysitting after he was put to sleep.

We cannot recommend Silvia enough for her warmth, kindness, enthusiasm, and responsibility--we're not sure what we would have done without her. Our son fell in love with her from the get-go, and after seeing her in action it was easy to see why. She was extremely patient with him, read him books, took him on walks, played with him, fed him, changed his nappies, and was even able to successfully get him to nap--no easy task for our tireless baby. He was always excited to see her when she arrived in the morning, and there were countless times when I would hear him laughing hysterically with her during playtime.

We appreciated, as well, how flexible Silvia was with her schedule to accommodate our somewhat quirky work hours, and she happily came over for evening babysitting on last-minute notice on numerous occasions. In short, we would be more than happy to hire Silvia again on our return to London, and wholeheartedly recommend her to others.

Silvia started looking after our son when he was 10 months old. She is very warm and caring, and does a wonderful job looking after our son. She was very good with him as a baby, and she is still very good with him now that he is a toddler.

Silvia takes our son to local play groups, local parks, libraries, and museums. Our son has fun with Silvia, and I know that he is in good hands. She also feeds him and bathes him regularly.

She looks after our son a few times a week for about 5 hours at a time. If our son is napping, Silvia has also been very helpful by doing light housework. We all look forward to the days that Silvia is with us.

When my 3 year old daughter got chicken pox right after the birth of my son I knew i would need some help at home. I found Silvia here and after a phone conversation i knew she was the right person.

She has a wonderfully kind nature about her and was very warm with both my kids. She has a true love of children and my 3 year old enjoyed her company immediately. She was able to play games and also very helpful with my 3 month old boy. She assisted me out of the house, on walks to the park and was happy to help me with anything that was needed. She is also lovely company.

She helped me for 4 hours a day, for about a week and I would not hesitate to recommend her,

best
