Veronica’s Bio

I am Veronica Oliveira career nanny from Brasil who adores babies, has studied physical education, and has cared for and helped to raise children from infancy. I have a great deal of experience with children of all ages, serving as everything from a full or part-time nanny to an occasional/date night/one-time sitter. I’ve traveled with families, stayed overnight at the families’ homes while the parents were away, nannied full-time out of my home (including keeping them overnight), been a night nanny for newborns/infants, have experience with mutiples, and have watched up to 6 children. I also have experience with high-profile families.
Children have always been my passion in life. Caring for them makes me happier than anything else in the world and I just feel very lucky to be able to make a living doing something I truly love. I have a warm, patient, calm and nurturing spirit, but at the same time, am upbeat and friendly. I am very tidy, organized, responsible and cautious, but at the same time, very enthusiastic and fun-loving (health and hygiene are of the utmost importance to me, but I believe in exploration and experience as well.) I also feel that eager attentiveness and a constant enthusiasm towards children are so important. I love to constantly show them that they are loved and that the things they do are recognized. I really believe in a lot of positive feedback, even regarding the smallest accomplishment they might do, and I incorporate both learning and fun into everyday activities. I will respect any rules or guidelines you have for raising your child. I realize how hard it is when other people watch your children and don’t follow your rules, discipline or beliefs. When I care for a child, I would naturally care for them as if they were my own, but I think it’s always important to reinforce the bond with their parent while I am caring for them, whether it be doing activities that remind them of their parents, teaching and encouraging them to love and obey them, or just simply making them feel excited to share their day with the parent when they come home.

Veronica has watched our infant full time for three months and already feels like family! She is a fantastic person and any family would be lucky to have her as a babysitter. She genuinely loves children and is extremely reliable. In fact, she goes above and beyond. Our 10 month old lights up when she sees her!

Thanks for everything.

Our children LOVE Veronica. My two year old says her name when we list all the people we love and my 9 month old smiles and kicks with joy when he sees her.
Veronica has been working with us for 5 moths and we are so grateful for all she does for us. She is an excellent babysitter. She will take the kids to the park, the children's museum, rock them to sleep, read them stories, make lunch or just play. She is always here on time and she does light housekeeping. She is a gem!

We recently moved away from Chicago, but had the pleasure of having Veronica as our babysitter for our son, Ben, for the past year. She was really great with our son, he loved being around her. She is very personable and always very professional.

I cannot say enough good things about Veronica. She has been sitting for us for almost a year and we have been impressed from the beginning. She has a natural, intuitive way with our son that has always put him at ease. She is able to read his needs and wishes and attend to them immediately. It is clear she has a lot of experience with children. She is highly professional, always on time and organized. I think the thing I love most about Veronica is her excitement about life which carries through to all that she does, including watching our son!

My favorite family ever!

Veronica has worked full-time with my family since September of 2006 until May 2009. She was hired to help me care for our two children, ages 7 months baby girl and 2 old boy and to help with the housework. She did both jobs very well. The children love her (she actually plays sports with both of the children and dolls with my daughter) and she helped with all of the laundry and light housekeeping in the home, ran errands, and met servicemen coming to the home. We left her overnight with the children on several occasions while we traveled. Veronica has always been on time and very flexible with our schedule, which changed frequently. She has never been too sick to come to work, and is completely honest and trustworthy, She is personable, reliable, and is fantastic with newborns/infants and toddlers, and is certified in CPR. She engages with our little children with songs, dances and even introduces new and fun activities. Veronica is wonderful because she will treat your child as if he/she is her own while at the same time being respectful of the parent's wishes. I highly recommend Veronica to the next family who is lucky enough to hire her. Please feel free to contact me with any specific questions that you might have at carollabc@yahoo.com

I love Veronica !

I love Veronica! Veronica has always been on time and very flexible with our situations. Before I met her, I tried other several young students for our kids but I realized that I need a really experienced person to take care of infants and toddlers in the same time. Veronica is professional, energetic and she knows what to do. Most of all, she is a caring person for kids and parents. I see, all the time, my baby and other children have good time with her. She has been a great help for my family and other families!
