About my home

Little Amigos focuses on not just learning through play but also bringing the children together while learning, making relationships, understanding values, and of course having an incredible amount of fun at the same time, in the safest and most enabling environment! Welcoming to all children 0-8yrs. There will be outings to local parks, playgroups, playdates and seasonal tea parties as well as cultural learning days! Arts & crafts and lots of stories to quiet down. My home feels like home :)

Unique highlights

Multiple Languages

I speak spanish to my daughter however english is also my language! I can also speak Galician and Portuguese. Also basic Italian.

Musical enviroment

I grew up in a loving family of musicians! I can play a bit if piano, and guitar is my favourite instrument. I was also a singer occasionally :) At Little amigos there will be lots of musical activities involving real instruments.

Cooking skills

I love cooking and giving the children the opportunity to get involved in cooking and baking is one of my planned activities in a weekly basis. I have a multicultural background and can cook all sorts of foods, from south American to asian, Mediterranean, spanish, mexican, etc! Meals provided are freshly made by me following a healthy and balanced menu, low salt content and no added sugars!

Love for animals

Little Amigos is also Layla’s home. Layla is a lovely rescued dog, part of our family as she’s been with us from a pup till now over 4 years. We will learn how to look after pets and introduce the value of having a pet, responsibilities and much more!

School across the road

We are only few steps away from Whiteheath Junior School!

Close to parks, field and the Lido

1 min walk to the nearest field where we can have lots if forest play and 15mins walk to the famous Ruislip Lido!

10+ years experience

I worked as a private nanny for over 10 years as part of individual contracts as well as shared! With multiple children from different families under the same contract

A mother’s instinct

As mothers we feel like no one can look after our child as well as ourselves. I know that feeling! That’s why I want you to know, that I am a mum, and at Little Amigos my aim is to provide a motherly care, I will look after your child as I would want my own child to be looked after.

Settling period

It can be tricky for those little minds to adjust to new changes. That’s why I’ve created and effective settling in period to make the transition stress free for both parents and children!

Allotment in the garden

We will get hands on the ground! Come spring, we will have available in our garden, a space to plant veggies and will learn how to take care of them and watch them grow and of course take them into our kitchen!
