Who is Larissa?

Larissa is a young woman graduated in Business Administration who has always been passionate about kids and has dedicated herself to give voice to their needs for the past 10 years. She believes that every child should have the same opportunities and should be able to grow in a safe and caring environment.


In 2017 she joined the Board of Director of "Love-N-Change" non-profit organization, believing that love is the solution for everything and developing social projects in various communities around the world by improving their lifestyle. 


She has always been actively involved in projects at her local church’s Children’s Ministry, teaching, caring and promoting spiritual and intellectual growth on kids of all ages. She has also worked as a nanny for over 5 years.


In 2017, after having her own child, she decided it was time to open her own Family Child Care and spread the love helping other families. 


After years of experience in business and leadership she believes she can use her professional skills and her personal passions to make the world a better place, one life at a time!

“I know how important it is for a child to be in a healthy, safe and fun environment. My goal is to promote independence, autonomy, self-esteem and caring toward others and the environment. My desire is to assist and encourage each child’s abilities and skills throughout every stage of their development. Your child will have a safe, fun, clean, caring, healthy place in a homelike atmosphere in which to grow and learn.”
