Hello, My name is Fernanda Costa . I have more the 15 years of experience as being a nanny. I have had the wonderful opportunity of working with two families and help raise five children since they had newborn . I have taken care of children as newborn until 13 years of age. I am a native Portugues speaker and it would be a pleasure of mine to help teach your children a second language if desired. I love working with children and I care for them as if they were my own. I am an advocate of, “let’s be active” and love scheduling the children’s time with Arts/Crafts projects, library visits, playground playtimes and any other activities that the children enjoy. I can assure you that your children will always be given first priority and the absolute best care they deserve. I can promise you that you will not Read more find any other nanny that will care for your children with the same love you give them. I have excellent references that would be more than happy to reassure any questions and confirm my credibility . I would be so blessed to be given the opportunity for an interview and hopefully a chance to work with your family and become a part of it. I believe I am the right nanny fit for your family, not only because of my experience but in my success of building true, lifelong, blessed relationships with both the children and the parents. I really hope you consider me to be your future nanny and thank you so much for taking the time to review my application! Sincerely, Fernanda Costa
