My name is Fernanda and I am a 42-year-old former au pair/nanny who lives in Northbrook, Illinois. I am a passionate, dedicated and innovative caregiver. I have always known that I wanted to pursue a career in the early years, and I truly enjoy creating spaces where children can develop their own identities. I believe that a caregiver plays the important role of a proxy parent, since kids learn best and first from the people around them. I am also fascinated by children's quest to absorb knowledge and I engage in plenty of activities that in addition to reduce the likelihood of boredom, makes them feel accepted and loved. As a nanny I learned that nurture attracts additional acts of nurturing and creates a great experience of citizenship. My goal is to turn children's socialization into extraordinary interactions that affect the architecture of their brains in a very harmonic way.

    It is easy to talk about about Fernandinha, even for a non-native speaker. She is a blessed soul that was born to be around children. Fernandinha was trained and prepared to be an "AuPair" in France back in 2000's, she still holds contact with the families and children she worked with in France. She is so knowledgeable and has such a deep understanding about little ones. Both good instincts and textbook knowledge. She is extremely patient. Her enthusiasm and creativity connects her with children in a whole other level. My children are completely head over heels about her. She sings, she sits on the floor for intelligent play time. She is so great at arts and crafts. She made a spaghetti pool for my daughter. She knows all about the different skills to be developed at every phase and knows how to create experience for all ages
