Hello, dear family! My name is Claudineia, I am originally from Brazil and I have over 8 years of experience working as a childcare provider. I recently moved to Henrico with my Husband and step daughter. From babysitting, being a full-time nanny and working at a daycare, I have gained a lot of knowledge about working with children. I am open to a live-out position, and I would be happy to provide references as well as meet or chat on the phone. In my live-in experience, I took care of two little girls that became very special to me. When I started, the younger one was only a newborn and I helped with all aspects of their care, including: bottle feeding, introducing solid foods, diaper changing, helping with potty training, bathing, reading, playing and ensuring they were happy, safe and loved. I have also cared for school-aged children and have experience in preparing their meals, driving them to school and activities, helping with homework, engaging them with reading, art projects, indoor and outdoor games and being a fun friend and a positive role model for them. My last experience was taking care of a very sweet boy in NYC, he was 5 months old when I started and I stayed with him for 10 months, I was responsible for all his needs, helping him with his development, reading and introducing him to new things, and always providing him with a safe and happy environment. I am very active, energetic, patient, organized, and always ready to have fun with the kids but also able to follow rules and keep up with busy schedules. If you would like to learn more about me and my childcare experience, please do not hesitate to contact me!

After graduating from Virginia Tech in 2010 with a B.S. in Dietetics, I began my journey in child care as a full-time nanny to 2 boys. I stayed with this family for 2 years, and then continued being a nanny to a family with 3 children (1 girl, 2 boys). In both nanny positions I was entrusted to serve as an adjunct to parents in fostering their children’s cognitive, social, physical, and emotional development. I was tasked with creating an innovative, nurturing, and stimulating environment conducive to personal and intellectual growth. All the children have thrived in my care. Overall, I engaged with the children daily in purposeful, fun, and relatable ways to construct meaningful relationships with them, whilst promoting their growth in major developmental areas. Currently, I work as an assistant teacher at a Montessori School. In mid-April my husband and I will be moving to Henrico County - and thus the search for a new position begins! I am excited to make memories with another wonderful family. If I sound like a fit for your family please contact me at your convenience. Thank you!

I was a certified house parent at a crisis nursery for an academic school year during my undergraduate degree. As a houseparent I worked with children birth to age 7. Through my 15 years as a girl scout, being part of a foster family hosting infants and my intership last year at the crisis nursery, I feel i am qualified for the nanny position. My passion lies with children and enhancing their quality of life. I also have experience working with middle school students as a mentor. Throughout my work as a mentor my students were exposed to a variety of hobbys in efforts to decrease dropout rates. Both years I mentored my student started wihth failing grades and ended with A's and B's. Throughout girl scouting I have learned many arts and crafts, and sharpened my skills as a leader. I was also camp leader for ages 4 to 8. I also have a love for music and teaching young children. My favorite activity as a houseparent in the crisis nursery was reading to the children.

I am looking for something long-term. Being a nanny is right up my alley. I have worked with kids since I was thirteen. I have tutored at an elementary school, which involved teaching children to read, and babysat. I have been responsible for up to six kids at a time, and I had no problem with it. There are families that I have been working with since I began babysitting. I love kids and get along really well with them. I love to do different kinds of crafts and many other fun things as well. I believe I am very responsible and able to do whatever is needed when it comes to caring for children. When it comes to discipline I am very calm. I believe in talking out what was done wrong and finding a solution on how to handle it next time. As for cleaning and such, I had a strict upbringing when it came to that, so I am confident in my abilities to handle that as well.
