Describe your past childcare experience: I’ve been working for the xx family since Aug/2003 till now (Aug/2016). They first had only one 1 year-old daughter (Caroline, now 14), then they had Tommy (now 12) and Benjamin (now 10). I love all of them, but the family, no longer needs a Nanny. Previous to taking care of the xx children. I took care of xx daughters, Camila since she was two years old, and Andrea since she was newly-born. I have other experiences, but, suffices to say that I’ve loved children all my life, and because I don’t have any of my own, I’ve been blessed to take care of other people’s loved ones.

Hello, my name is Yvonne, I'm Brazilian and I'm 31 years old. I came to the US intending to expand my knowledge on English language. I can understand the language nicely, but I can't speak fluently. I'm a person with good qualification to work as a nanny. I'm responsible, pontual, pacient, reliable, I'm also active and love playing! Other than taking care of my 11 year old daughter, I have worked with kids on two houses in Brasil. The first one I took care of a 4 year old girl (Manuela) and her 1 year old brother (Eduardo). On the second house I took care of a twin couple (Vitor and Carol), they are 5 years old today! On both cases I used to work all day, in the morning and in the afternoon, and studied at law school at night. My functions included preparing the meals, help the children with their homeworks, elaborate creative activities to keep them entertained, and whatever else as needed. Therefore, I believe to have the background needed for the job.
