Meet Silvia

  • Speaks English, Portuguese, and Spanish
  • Comfortable with pets

I used to be a Physical Education teacher in Brazil, where I'm from. I've been working as a nanny in the US since 2010. I have lots of experience with newborns, infants, and toddlers, and I have taken care of a few older kids under 12 years old. I also have experience with early time development, educational games, art and literature for kids. In fact, I love working with kids! I'm a loving, fun, non-smoker and a responsible person. I speak Portuguese, and I am improving my Spanish. I also invest on my own personal growth through social and emotional intelligence weekly training, which provides me with a better understanding of the kids needs and behaviors. I'd love to talk to you and see if I'm a good fit for your family. Thank you!

We adore Silvia, and I enthusiastically recommend her as a nanny. She has been caring for our toddler twin girls since May, 2011. Silvia is creative, caring and extremely reliable. My girls light up when she arrives in the morning, and they have even been known to cry a little when she leaves! Silvia relates to my children in a delightful way—they are always playing, dancing, singing and reading. Caring for twins can be hectic, but Silvia always keeps a calm perspective and is in control of the situation. I also appreciate that Silvia keeps her appointments, arrives on time and is respectful of our home and personal parenting philosophies. Silvia is a great addition to our household and we are lucky to have found her!

My daughters, 5 and 3, loved interacting with Silvia. She was very engaged in their activities from the moment she arrived and had a very pleasant, comfortable rapport with the children and with me. I found her to be prompt, attentive and she followed my instructions to the letter. We look forward to working with her again.
