PT Childcare Needed in NoPo late March

We are in need of care for our son Henry starting the last week of March. He will 5 months old at that time. We're open to any arrangement (nanny, nanny share, center) that's within a reasonable drive of our home in the Arbor Lodge neighborhood of North Portland. 

Henry is a very easy-going, happy baby. We have a pet- and smoke-free home. We're looking for someone who is nurturing, creative, responsible, and likes to get out of the house. We are flexible and open to many things, but we prefer a screen-free environment for Henry. 

My work schedule will be all day MTW, but I may be able to change the days of the week to adapt to a provider's needs. If interested, please email Laura at laura.n.mccray@gmail.com.

Seeking PT nanny for NE (Sabin) family (infant & 3 year old)

February 01, 2016

We are looking for a nanny to join our family. We have one boy, 3.5 years old, who is in preschool and one newborn baby girl... And 2 cats and a dog, whew! We live in Sabin neighborhood and our son goes to preschool 8:30-12:30 nearby. We are looking for an experienced, confident, and fun-loving nanny to join our family for the long haul. To start, we will need 20 hours/week childcare, full days T/Th and 4 hours flex, when I return to work part time. Mornings will be quiet, caring for the baby only. Experience with bottle feeding expressed breast milk, a plus. We do a lot of baby wearing, so a strong core/back is a must. Our son is very active, so afternoons will be much more high paced. Daily outdoor adventures to the park, hike, soccer field, etc. will keep him entertained. Art projects, reading, and other indoor activities too. I start back at work in April but we would like to hire by mid-March so that we can overlap care for a week or so.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Nanny Share in Alameda Neighborhood

We are located in the Alameda neighborhood. Our nanny, Angela, currently cares for our daughter, Leila, from 7:30 am until 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday. We are looking for another family to join us for fun, arts and outdoor play during some or all of those hours. Our nanny is also available on Fridays (at your home) if you are looking for care five days a week.

We love our nanny. She holds a BA in early childhood education and was previously an Au Pair before we found her. She is fluent in English, but only speaks Spanish to Leila. Angela typically takes Leila to the library and park once a week, but also makes trips to OMSI and other fun spots. We incorporate arts and crafts projects every week.

Leila is happy and affectionate, and she likes books, outdoors and music among the other typical 18 month-old interests. She is equally talkative in Spanish and English.

We like organic food, playful learning and a positive environment. We're flexible with the schedule. We'd like to find one child to join us for care - to create a more social (and more fun) environment for both kids - while maintaining one-on-one interaction. We have a large indoor play space with too many toys and live two blocks from the park. Leila takes one nap a day at about noon. If this sounds like it might be a good fit for you, please email me at Michele.wasson@gmail.com.

Take care.

Looking for After School Nanny to start in March

January 29, 2016

Hello!  We are looking for an after school nanny to pick up our almost 5 year old and our 4 month old from Tiny Revolution Montessori School beginning in March.  The schedule would be 10 hours per week - from 3:30-6pm, Monday - Thursday.  Tiny Revolution is on MLK between Tillamook and San Rafael, and we live on SE 46th Avenue between Stark and Belmont.

You must have experience taking care of two kids and previous infant care is required. We would love someone with an appreciation for Montessori and RIE principles. We try to create a certain amount of predictability for our kids while also allowing them to choose what they want to play, explore, and learn. Assistance with light housework such as unloading the dishwasher, getting a simple dinner started, putting in a load of laundry, or tidying the kitchen or play areas would be great.  You will need your own car and a clean driving record.
 
We have previously participated in a nanny share and absolutely loved the experience! We are open to chatting about what works best for all parties and are happy to provide further details about our family and the schedule in person or over the phone. Pay is $14 per hour. Please send any questions or a cover letter and a resume outlining your experience to Ashley Cartmel (ashleycartmel@gmail.com)

Seeking PT Nanny Share in outer SE (or other referral)

I work somewhat odd hours and am reaching out in hopes of joining a nanny share or other in-home child care situation.

My daughter Rose is 11 months and I need care every Wednesday from 8:00am until 6:30pm. Also, if available, I need care on 1-2 Tuesdays per month, from 10am-6:30pm. However, drop-off and pick-up times could be negotiable depending on the situation. These have been difficult hours to find care for, without being able to afford the cost of having 1:1 care. So if you are someone, or know someone who would like to add a part time person to their nanny share or in-home care, the referral would be much appreciated. My email is jenna_krueger@msn.com

A little about us: I am a therapist who works for Kaiser Permanente part time, and my partner is a full time acupuncturist who works at two locations in the Portland area. Our daughter is active, curious, and very engaged with caregivers. We live in outer SE but would be willing to travel further in for the right situation. Thank you!

Seeking a Fun-loving Family (and Nanny) for Nanny Share

January 26, 2016

We are a new-to-Portland family with two little ones looking for an experienced full-time nanny to care for our kiddos. We just came out of a fantastic nanny share situation back east, where we employed a nanny for over two years with our neighbors and are in search of a similar set-up here in Portland. At present, we are interested either in joining an existing nanny share (with an immediate opening) OR finding a family that is in a position similar to ours to jointly hire and employ a nanny.

A little bit about us: We just relocated from Washington, DC, and have a 2.5 YO and 3 month old (both girls). We have a 65 lb. yellow lab with a lot of energy and love for humans (especially ones that drop food when they eat) and snoozy cat that keeps to himself. We lead an active lifestyle by running, cycling, and hiking, and enjoy good food and drink (hence, the move the Portland!). We are both professionals with full-time jobs (although I am currently still home on maternity leave) with backgrounds in public policy, education, and consulting.

What we’re looking for in a nanny: We are seeking a kind, caring, interactive, and playful caregiver who possesses strong references and a desire to work with both infants and toddlers. The We would like caregiver to have Infant First Aid & CPR training and ideally some background (formal or informal) in early childhood education.  We are only interested in a non-smoking caregiver. 

The schedule: M-F from 7:30am or 8am to 5pm but we are open to slightly different hours if needed. And we would be open to taking on a larger “share” of the nanny if there is a family seeking a share but not full-time like we are.

The location: We are open to a combination of our house and your house if they are close enough together; happy to host ourselves or have you host. We are in Buckman on 15th Ave just a south of Belmont--walkable to Colonel Summers Park, Laurelhurst Park, Buckman Elementary, OMSI, the Children’s Gym, and a wide array of kid-friendly activities. We have a separate room in the house where your child can sleep in a pack and play.  Our preference is that our nanny does not drive the kids anywhere during the day; however, if that’s a sticking point, we’re open to discussing other options.

If you are a caregiver interested in a FT nanny position OR a family interested in sharing a nanny with us, please contact Sara at sara.e.kerr@gmail.com. 

Thanks!

Frog Song Montessori Preschool Nature Camp

Frog-song-montessori-preschool-header (1) copy

 

Frog Song Montessori Preschool has a strong emphasis on children’s sensorial exploration of nature. Children are naturally and intrinsically drawn to nature, and as concrete, sensorial learners, children 3-5 years of age learn through their own interactions with their environment. Our 14 acres of land allows children the explorative experiences necessary for self-discovery. Each of our five one-week summer camps focuses on a different aspect of the earth that is unique to our property, allowing children the opportunity to learn first hand in their own interactions and explorations of nature.

Week One: July 11th- July 15th

All About Dirt: This week we focus on dirt. In the classroom we will use books, stories, and language cards to learn all about what dirt is composed of, what lives in dirt, and how dirt can be different depending on where it is located. Classroom activities will include  creating things that live in the dirt through collage, sensorial explorations of dirt’s relationship to water and uses of dirt such as, planting a seed, and making dirt babies. Outside explorations will include digging in different areas of the property to discover differences in the soil, discovery digging to see what lives in the soil, and planting plants using soil.

Classroom activities will include planting a seed, planting watering, washing the leaves of a plant, leaf rubbing, creating a plant using cut out parts, and making a ‘parts of a plant’ book. Outside activities will include planting sprouted seeds in the garden, going on nature walks to identify plants, and collecting leaves of plants to compare and do leaf rubbings.

Week Three: July 25th- 29th

All About Water: This week we focus on water. Through books, stories, and language cards children will learn all about what water is, it’s importance on the earth, the different forms water takes, how water changes depending on the temperature, and what kinds of things live in water. Classroom activities will include exploration of the different land and water forms and what live in them, plant watering, washing the leaves of a plant, washing mats, tables, etc., and water explorations such as pouring and sponge squeezing. Outside activities will include watering the garden and plants on our playground, along with nature walks and discussions of which plants need more water and why. If our ponds are not dried up we will explore their contents and discover what’s inside!

Week Four: August 1st-5th

All About Trees: This week we will focus on trees. We will provide books, stories, songs and language cards so that children can learn what trees are, the parts of a tree, how they work, and what kinds of trees exist on our property. Classroom activities will include language cards for identifying the parts of a tree, exploration of different kinds of bark, creating a tree from it’s parts through collage, and creating a ‘parts of a tree’ book. Outside activities will include nature walks to identify trees, exploration of the different barks and leaves of trees and their collection for use in the classroom, and watering trees on our property.

MWF Nanny Share--Sellwood

January 18, 2016

We have a wonderful nanny for our 2 1/2 year old. She is kind, caring, interactive, playful, and professional--she graduated from NW Nannies Institute so has professional training and her first aid and cpr certifications. She has been working with our family since 2012 first caring for our 10 month old daughter who has now moved on to preschool and now for our 2 1/2 old. For years now, we’ve shared with 1 to 2 other families but one family just had a change in employment so it’s time for us to find a new family to join us.

The share currently has two little girls including my daughter who is 2.5 and another little girl from the neighborhood who is 22 months and they are dear friends :-)

The schedule: MWF from 7:30am or 8am to 5pm but we are open to slightly different hours if needed.

The location: We are open to a combination of our house and your house if they are close together. We are in Sellwood on 15th Ave just a few blocks south of Tacoma--walkable to Sellwood Park, the Community Center, the library, New Seasons. It’s a great place for the kids to have some activities outside of the house regularly without having to drive somewhere. We will have a separate room in the house where your child can sleep in a pack and play.  We do not have the nanny drive the kids anywhere and that remains important to us but she is happy to do drop off or pick up for your little one if that is something you feel comfortable with.

The rate: $6.00/hour though we do request that you have the flexibility to increase to $8.00 if the share drops down to two children while we look for a 3rd.   We convert the $6.00/hour into a flat weekly rate and pay the same each week regardless of whether there are holidays, sick days, etc--this is so that the nanny has a predictable living wage. 

About us: We have our two wonderful daughters and a 60 lb dog named Meg who mostly keeps to herself. We make efforts to be green--from eating a vegan diet to using cloth diapers and natural products. My husband is a teacher and I work in renewable energy. Please get in touch if you are interested in discussing more! amandamortlock [@] gmail.com

Nanny with 20 years childcare experience seeks family

January 17, 2016

I’m looking for a great new family or families to work with. I’ve worked in the field of childcare for 20 years, 5 years of that time as a nanny. In addition to working in daycares and preschools, I’ve worked in after school programs; an art based summer camp; and was the art teacher for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders at a Montessori school.

A few things past employers have said about me are:

– “She's able to quickly come up with fresh ideas to keep children interested in projects and adapt to each child's developmental skill level, while challenging their limits and imagination.”

– “She is a calm and steady presence around the house, as well as a natural with kids. Both my kids hit it off with her right away, and they are always happy to see her when she arrives.”

– “She comes up with games that are perfect for their ages, and has a real knack for getting them to have fun playing together.”

– “Has a wonderfully calm and quiet, yet powerful presence that children naturally follow.”

I’m still in touch with several families I’ve worked for in the past. When you’re a nanny you develop a relationship with the whole family, not just the child(ren). I'm CPR & first aid certified. I’m a non-smoker and am comfortable around pets.

Please email me at nepdxnanny@yahoo.com and I can send you my resume and references. I look forward to hearing from you.

Happy Toddler and Enthusiastic Nanny in SE looking for PT Nanny Share!

11081071_10204163672472589_301828807723989400_n-1

I currently nanny two days a week for a wonderful family and their giggly 17-month-old daughter. We're looking to have even more fun by finding another great family to nanny share with, starting in January! If you have a child of similar age and you're looking for care TUESDAYS and/or FRIDAYS, we'd love to hear from you!

Our days are full of toddler-led play, with lots of time for self-directed learning and exploring. We're currently spending our days at their house, near Woodstock Park and just a ten minute walk from the library. We have a fun, safe area to play and lots of toys and books to share. If you have a similar setup, we're also happy to come to you!

ABOUT ME: I've been caring for children for eight years, and have spent four years as a full-time nanny. I have cared for a range of ages, from infants to pre-teens. I've probably played a hundred games of Candy Land, have finger-painted way more than the average 24-year old, and know that spit-up won't ruin an outfit!

I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, and am currently exploring my post-grad options. I have a reliable car, a great driving record and have lots of experience with kids in the car (I know my way around a car seat!). I personally consider cleaning up after the kids, washing the dishes we dirty, and general tidying up as part of the job, and am open to more general household help if desired. I am also glad to provide professional references to exemplify my previous experience as a sitter.

I believe that every child deserves to see themselves as a valued and valuable individual, and that it is much easier to help a child want to cooperate with you rather than to try and make them. I also believe in having lots (and lots) of fun.


If it sounds like we'd be a good fit, please contact me at se.nannyshare@gmail.com.

Best,

Alyssa

Seeking a Nanny-Share to Join in SE Starting March 2016 (or sooner!)

January 02, 2016

We are seeking a great nanny-share to join for our 19-month-old daughter starting March 2016, or sooner. We are seeking regular care for 2-3 days/week (Mon-Tues, Mon & Wed, or Mon-Wed) for about 9.5 hours per day, typically from 7:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.  We live in SE Portland near SE 47th Ave and Division Street and we work downtown. 

What we’re looking for:  We’re seeking a family in SE Portland who already has a nanny and who would like us to share with you Mon-Tues; Mon & Wed or Mon-Wed and host.  Ideally we would like to share with 1-2 other toddlers. 

Why:  My husband and I work full-time in Portland Mondays-Wednesdays, but because we live in a small studio apartment these days, we are seeking a nanny-share situation that our daughter could join in on.  We live in Hood River the remainder of the week.  We are currently taking part in a wonderful nanny-share situation, but sadly our nanny is moving from Portland!

About us: My h IMG_8974_smallerusband and I are active individuals in our late 30s. We spend our free time outdoors - surfing, mountain biking, hiking, camping and running rivers.  We’re delighted to be parents of one very happy and spirited young girl, Piper Mae (she’ll be 2 in May).  We have demanding jobs and are therefore looking for a highly dependable situation. We’re clean, organized and we care about the environment.  What that means for our daughter’s care is that we use cloth diapers, glass bottles and we feed her organic, fresh cooked foods when possible. 

Ideal caretaker:  We’re seeking a dynamic, energetic, healthy and attentive individual with multiple years of experience caring for toddlers. We would expect a caregiver to create a loving and safe environment and to engage with our daughter to foster learning and development appropriate for her age through play, music, art, movement, conversation and time outdoors.  We would like caregiver to have Infant First Aid & CPR training and ideally some background in early childhood education.  We are only interested in a non-smoking home with a caregiver that does not smoke. 

Thanks for your consideration!  If you think you have a situation that might be a good fit, please email me, kristin.dahl@gmail.com

Mama Looking for New Childcare Solution - N/NE PDX

Hi there!

My family just recently moved to the N/NE PDX area (Piedmont) from Montavilla. Our 9 month old son is currently attending a traditional daycare center in our old neighborhood, which means this tired mama has to commute to daycare AND to work every day! That's a lot of driving!

We're looking for a new childcare solution that is comparable in price to what we're currently doing, but near our new home instead. We need M-Th full-day care, and we're open to in-home daycares, nanny shares, traditional facilities, or other creative solutions for under $1000 a month in our new neighborhood.

If you know of anything in the area, or if you're interested in setting up a nanny share with us, please contact me at carolyn.knees@gmail.com.

Thank you!
Carolyn

Nanny or Nanny-Share on Thursdays

Hello,

We're looking for childcare for our fun-loving 19 month-old son, Brooks, starting in January and going through June. We actually only need coverage on Thursdays so joining a nanny share would be ideal but we're completely open to other suggestions and proposals. We live in SW Portland close to Multnomah Village near many parks and we're happy to have a nanny come to our house or we can do a drop-off if it's a daycare or nanny-share situation. We'd be looking for about 8-10 hours per week, each Thursday through June (ideally).

If this sounds of interest or like a potential fit, please email me so we can set up a time to chat!

Thanks so much and look forward to hearing from you!

Childcare Available in St. John's - January 2016

TaraRemy

Hello families! My name is Tara. I'm a stay-at-home mom with over 10 years of experience working in childcare. I've decided to start offering childcare from my home near Pier Park in St. John's beginning this coming January. 

ABOUT ME

I’ve been working as a nanny on and off for about 10 years, in addition to holding other jobs in the arts, teaching and retail fields. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Production and would eventually like to return to that field, but I also have a true passion for working with children. I believe in nature-based education, positive discipline and free play with an emphasis on music and the arts. I have been trained in early childhood education, have been CPR/First Aid certified (currently in the process of re-certifying) and I’ve got excellent references. I have experience with twins, premies, toddlers, cloth/disposables, breastmilk/formula and accommodating a variety of diets (gluten-free, vegan, etc.)

ABOUT OUR HOME

Our home is located near Pier Park in the St. John’s neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. We strive to keep all play spaces pesticide, toxic-chemical and screen-free. Play areas include a variety of toys, books, and musical instruments, as well as art and craft supplies.

Our daily routine includes a walk to the park or Swap & Play, working in the garden, preparing healthy meals, dancing to music, and arts & crafts time in addition to an afternoon nap from 12-2pm.
