Truly the Best!


Sheila Soares worked as a nanny for our family for two years from January 2017 - December 2018. She has has lovingly and reliably cared for our first son three days per week starting when he was 9 months old until 2.5 years old, along with our second son from birth to 7 months. Our sons love and absolutely adore her, and she has truly become a beloved member of our family.

Sheila has more positive qualities than I can possibly list. She is a caring, attentive genuine, and honest person - I have trusted her completely to care for our children. She is patient and kind and also sets boundaries and behaviour expectations for our toddler. Among her many attributes Sheila has provided the following for our boys:

-Nutritious meal preparation: Sheila is an incredible cook and has prepared healthy, delicious meals from baby purees to enticing and nutritious toddler meals and snacks.

-Creativity and arts: Sheila is extremely creative and a talented artist. She has done painting, drawing and other creative projects with our son, especially on rainy days! She also listens to music and encourages singing and dancing!

-Learning and language development: Sheila is constantly reading and teaching our son new things such as counting, colors, alphabet, etc. She is fluent in English, but speaks with our son in Portuguese at our request, as well as baby sign language.

-Playgroups and activities: Sheila is an outgoing person who loves to keep our kids entertained and active. She knows of many playgroups, music and dance classes, and other activities in the area. She also has an extensive network of other wonderful nannies in the area to arrange play dates in the park.

-First Aid and safety - Sheila always prioritises safety of our children inside the house and out. She is first aid qualified and is always making sure the boys are safe. She keeps the children play area extremely tidy and free of any hazards.

Above all, Sheila has provided love and care for our children while we were working. The only reason we have parted ways is because we are moving back to the USA.

I am happy to provide more details on Sheila’s capabilities and qualifications. She has my utmost recommendation and support and would be an asset to any family looking for a wonderful, loving carer for their children.
Sincerely yours,
Andrea Burke
