I have worked for over 13 years in childcare. This has enabled me to develop a wide range of skills and experience in supporting parents in the important early months and years of their child's growth and development.
After gained my qualifications in Maternity Nursing in 2011, have since then undertaken additional courses to further my understanding in subjects such as 'breast and bottle feeding', 'sleep training' and 'reflux and allergies'.
I have experience of working with both first time parents and also with established families. Where there are other siblings I endeavour to encourage engagement and bonding with the baby and thereby, integrate the new arrival into the home environment. I am able to work equally well whether in sole charge, or in the shared care of any child. I am flexible in my approach and enjoy working with parents to provide advice, techniques and knowledge to establish the procedures best suited to each family's personal routine and outlook. In everything I do, my concern is always for the overall well-being of the child and parents.
I am also skilled in working with both breast and bottle fed babies and understand the issues that can arise with feeding. In this, as in other areas, I always respect the parents individual choice in these matters and am always willing to discuss any alternative methods and practices that are available. This applies equally to areas such as establishing sleeping and feeding routines, postnatal depression and all aspects of newborn and child care.
I am a friendly, reliable, down to earth person and bring a calm and considered approach to my work. Whatever issues may arise, I respond positively and patiently, maintaining a stable and relaxed environment for the whole family. I offer a positive and optimistic attitude, with a responsive empathy towards the needs of all members within the family unit. I have very high standards in cleanliness and in maintaining and promoting a safe and clean environment.
I had travelled with babies overseas and also worked abroad to foreigner families in Spain, USA, Switzerland, Portugal, Turkey, Singapore, France.

Full time Nanny – for approximately 7 years I’ve worked as a nanny both in Portugal and in the UK. My work covered children of ages 0-5 years old. I was most sole charge of the children and my responsibilities were to cover all the aspects of the children learning process, playing, travelling, going to playdates and classes, taking care of their food and their laundry, also the logistic of their toys, school books, school equipment’s, etc.
Russell Family Full Time Nanny February 2011
This was a sole charge position in which I cared for a girl aged 14 months (Age when I started) and a baby which was borne in January 2012. I took responsibility for her care full time, with my duties including feeding, bathing, maintaining a routine, putting the children down for naps, and ensuring her well-being and health. I took responsibility for transport to and from playgroups and sport activities, nursery, play dates and travelling with the family. I established behaviour plans, assisted her in learning to read and structured a wide range of stimulating activities such as games, music and dance. In addition to these responsibilities, I undertook light house hold duties on an ad hoc basis, such as cooking for the child, taking care of her room, clothes and toys, etc.
Fourgeroux Family Full time Nanny September 2010 – January 2011
Sole charge position which I looks after a girl 15 months and a boy 3 years old. I am responsible for all the nursery tasks, including cleaning their room, toys, washing and ironing their clothes, cooking and tiding up after meals. I am also responsible for bathing and feeding, establishing routines, organizing play dates, collecting the oldest child from school, assisting him in his learning process, etc.
Reason for living: Family and I have a different approach in terms of education.
Swindell Family Full Time Nanny August 2008 – September 2010
This was a sole charge position in which I cared for a girl now aged 5. I took responsibilities similar in the Russell Family but in addition to supervising and assisting her with her homework.
Reason for Leaving: With the girl to start school full-time, and additional assistance from her grandparents, my hours have decreased significantly.
Andrea Marques/Lara Marques Maternity Nurse March 2008 – August 2008
This was a full-time position in which I cared for a baby boy from the time he was born until he was 6 months old, whilst his mother was in Therapy. Duties included taking him for trips to the park, providing activities such as play, singing, reading and other various learning opportunities, giving his daily meals, and prepare for bath and bed time.
Reason for Leaving: It was a temporary position.
Mara Silva (Lisbon, Portugal) Part Time Nanny November 2003 – August 2006
I cared for a girl from shortly after birth until the age of 3 years. In this full-time position I had a wide range of responsibilities including giving her daily meals, bathing her and preparing her for bed. When she turned one she started going to a nursery and I became responsible for collecting her and arranging play dates. I organised outings, trips to the park and taught her arts, crafts and games.
Reason for Leaving: I moved to England due to the unstable economic situation in Portugal.
