Hello, my name is Kesia Silva. I have been working as a nanny since 2005. The first family I worked for, I took care of a boy, starting at 18 months of age and left the family when he was going to school full time at the age of 6. During this time I got to know the hard work, but also the fun you can have being responsible for child. Through my creativity and patience, there was a never dull moment for the little one, thus, I established a very good relationship with him and his parents. Having to leave this family made me sad at the time, but it also got me the opportunity to get to know my current family. with them I have been for 5 1/2 years now and I am responsible for two wonderful girls (31/2 and 5/12 years). I found out that watching and working with two children is totally different than to only one, but I managed to grow into that role and we have a lot of fun together while managing the daily routines. playing, being creative, and even learning Portuguese fills our day just right.
Sadly they, too, grow out of needing a nanny, thus I am searching for a new full time challenge. I am able to start January 2015.

As new parents in 2009, living in Lakeview with no family in the area, we needed an experienced nanny for our newborn. As working professionals we had experience interviewing, hiring, judging character, etc. BUT interviewing a nanny to take care of our first born was terrifying. How in the world was I going to interview someone for THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB OF ALL JOBS?! A few clicks on Sitter City brought us to Kesia. We had interviewed several other nannies before Kesia. As soon as I met her, I knew she would be a perfect fit. She was calm, sincere, happy, full of life and spoke so lovingly about her family back in Brazil. I trusted her immediately and when you know - well you just know.
Add another child, now almost 4 y.o. and fast forward 5 1/2 years, and Kesia has been the greatest gift to our family. She is easy to work with. She is respectful and follows guidelines. The loyalty, love and care she gives our family is unparalleled. Kesia has always done an excellent job keeping the girls active and busy. They are always off to the park, the zoo, library, music class, play spaces, movies, you name it. For a rainy day, Kesia knows every indoor play place in the area. Kesia loves arts and because of that our girls love to draw, sing and dance. She manages their daily schedules from getting them up in the a.m., preparing breakfast, getting dressed and off to school with lunches. Shuttling to and from gymnastics, swimming and other activities. In addition, Kesia would happily help out with overnight duties at times when Justin and I had conflicting work travel schedules (the girls were always thrilled!).
She has unquestionably exceeded our expectations. She has loved our girls as if they were own and inspire them to be the happy, loving and caring people. She will always be a part of our family.
