Helena’s Bio

Helena’s Bio

My name is Helena and I'm married to my husband for 9 years. We live in Falls Church, VA (bordered between Arlington and McLean).

I'm an In-Home-Care provider in Fairfax County. I have a three year old and newborn. I'm looking for new children to care for at my home. That way, I can be with my children while maintain and good work-life balance.

As a brief professional background of myself, I have 16 years of child care experience working with children from 0 to 7 years old. Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, I majored in Childcare (Assoc. Diploma Educare) and worked as a teacher and home-nanny before becoming an Au Pair in the USA. In terms of credentials, I possess a valid CDA for Preschool, CPR, and First-Aid certifications for children and adults.

I've always loved to work with children as it has been (and will be) part of my passion. With arts and music being another passion of mine, I often enjoy doing crafts, singing songs, and telling stories to children. Furthermore, as a native South African, I very much enjoy teaching children about the cultures and the wildlife (e.g., the Big Five). Therefore, I feel I can make a difference when I'm working with children while enjoying what I do and love most in live.

If you are interested in having me as your Nanny and/or if you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at (571) 306-1427 or
