Looking for a Nanny for 1 Year Old in SW

February 24, 2018

We are looking for care for our 1 year old daughter, Jane, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. She is a very sweet, laid back kid. She loves to read stories, play with her pop up toy, climb, go on walks, cuddle her babies and play "please and thank you" (handing toys back and forth) and "Where's Jane?". 

The job entails:
- preparing breakfast, lunch and snacks plus two bottles
- doing dishes dirtied during the day
- playing, reading, going on walks, sensory play
- letting the dog out
- putting Jane down for a nap (she usually sleeps for 2-3 hours)
- washing, drying and putting away the kid clothes (2 loads) once a week
- sweeping or vacuuming the living room and kitchen once a week 
- other light housework (eg picking up toys)
- going on excursions 
- occasionally our 4 year old daughter would also be home

Our ideal nanny:
- is reliable and punctual
- has a car 
- has experience working with infants/toddlers with references
- is knowledgeable about child development and able to come up with engaging activities
- does not smoke or wear perfume (Jane has asthma)
- is willing to commit until mid-June

Please contact me via email at morganmulkey@gmail.com with your resume and why you think you would be a good fit for the position. We are hoping to meet potential candidates by Monday.

Seeking Nanny

February 20, 2018

Hi! 

We are looking for a nanny for a nanny-share opportunity for my sweet, sweet son Woody (15 months) and 1-2 other kiddos of similar age. The families in the nanny-share have been together for a year and our previous nanny had a sudden health complication that has left us all looking for care. The kiddos have played happily together since they were infants and we're looking for a caring person to watch them over this next year before pre-school. 

If you are interested, please contact me (anniebryant at gmail.com).

Thank you!

Annie

Looking for a nanny for our baby starting in September

February 01, 2018

Hi! 

My husband and I are expecting our first baby in May and are looking for childcare Monday-Friday once I start working again in September. We're located in Sellwood-Westmoreland are seeking a loving, positive, and dependable nanny for our little one. We're looking for someone with excellent references and experience (particularly with infants), certification in first aid and infant CPR, and a clean background check. The responsibilities would be focused on caring for our baby with minimal other tasks (e.g. cleaning bottles after feeding).

We really just want to find the right person and we'd be open to a nanny share if the situation works.

Please contact me at 302.528.5730 or michellemarinoberg@gmail.com if you think that this may be a good fit.

Thank you!

Michelle

EXPERIENCED NANNY WITH MASTER’S DEGREE AVAILABLE FOR PT CHILDCARE (24-30 hours/week)

Hi Portland families!

My name is Laurel and I have been working full-time as a nanny for three years and have been providing childcare for nearly 20 years to children of all ages, ranging from newborns to adolescents. I studied Family Studies and Human Development as an undergrad and Social Work (with a concentration in Children and Families) as a graduate student. I worked with at-risk children and families as a home visiting social worker before moving into the field of early childhood education where I worked as an educator in both a toddler and mixed age preschool classroom.

I believe that children learn through relationships, play and the ability to interact with a variety of materials and environments. I believe in the power of predictable routines, honest and clear communication, and firm and consistent boundaries. I offer children authentic choices and invite their active participation in the day’s routine whenever possible. I value and welcome the full range of children’s emotions while acknowledging that not all behaviors are acceptable. I closely follow the RIE philosophy as it is the most authentic and respectful childcare approach I know of. I’m looking forward to beginning RIE professional development training this summer.

Preference is given to families who:

-are seeking care for one infant

-live in inner SE or NE Portland

-need between 24-30 hours of care per week (no more than 3 days per week)

-are supportive of and actively practicing the RIE philosophy

I'm CPR/First Aid certified, enrolled in the OR Central Background Registry, have a driver's license, a clean driving record and a safe car.

When I’m not working directly with children, I own a consulting business that offers design and organization services to individuals and families. I work with families to create supportive, enriching environments for children at home (and help them find better ways to manage all the toys and gear that kids acquire).

I like to spend my free time cooking, exploring the incredible wild spaces of the Pacific Northwest, practicing yoga and mindfulness, scouring secondhand stores and watching adventure films.

I'm reliable, experienced and I feel confident that I can provide respectful, responsive care for your child. Please let me know if you have any questions. I have plentiful, glowing references, which I would love to share with you if you’re interested. I look forward to hearing from you!

Warmly,

Laurel

Childcare Openings in N. Portland!

January 23, 2018

Hi all! My name is Charlene Adams and I'm an in home childcare provider in North Portland. I'm located between Morgan St and Buffalo St. I've been doing childcare out of my home for about 9 years now, but before this, I was a childcare teacher at Legacy Emanuel's Childcare center. I worked there for a little over 21 years, but after they closed down due to lack of funding, I was forced to find another job. In-home childcare has been a perfect fit! I'm a licensed childcare provider and I have my food handler's card, my recognizing child abuse certification, CPR, first aid, and an approved background check. In my care, we have a set schedule which consists of sign language lessons, learning their ABC's and numbers, story time, and a daily walk (if the weather is nice). Meals are provided. My hours are 7:30 am - 5:30 pm Monday -Friday. Currently, I have 4 full time children ranging from the ages 16 months - 2.5 years old. I like to keep my group small by not going over 6 kids. If you'd like more information, you can shoot me an email at adamscharlene1965@yahoo.com OR you can give me a call at (503) 891-6838. Thanks! I hope to hear from you!

In-Home Daycare in Montavilla

Infants to 4 years are my specialty. Science shows this is the most crucial time for brain development in our children and my home is an ideal setting for the education, stimulus, and care to give your loved ones. 

I have over 30 years 'experience with children in my home, where they will interact with each other and learn valuable social skills, practice letters and numbers during our daily lesson time, enjoy family-style dining for breakfast, lunch, and snacks, and explore the neighborhood and learn about nature in our annual garden. 

My low ratios ensure that each child is given the individual attention they need to thrive. I have been the care provider for many of my families for their childhood and am now caring for their own children.

I also understand that sometimes parents need some adult time, I offer an affordable way for you to go out to dinner or have a night alone as well by extending my services later or overnight on occasion.

I'd love to give you a tour, give me a call today!

Seeking nanny (or nanny-share) to start April in the Columbia River Gorge

January 22, 2018

Seeking an awesome individual to help care for our young kids and make our busy lives a little easier.

We have an infant son, Booker, born November 2017, and a soon to be 4-year old daughter, Piper. We’re looking for an experienced nanny that can provide loving care for them three to four days a week in our home, typically 8am to 5pm.  Booker will need full-time care, while Piper will be in preschool or summer camps throughout the week. 

We live about 8 miles southwest of downtown Hood River in Hood River County.  Our house and fenced yard provide an easy and safe environment to help keep our kids active and engaged.

** We are interested in hosting another baby for a nanny-share if the fit is right. **

About us: We are both professionals with demanding careers. We spend our free time outdoors - surfing, mountain biking, skiing, hiking, camping and running rivers. We’re clean, organized, solid communicators and we care deeply about the health of the environment (we recycle, compost, buy local, etc.) and our family’s health (we eat clean/organic, proactively take care of our health and lead active lifestyles).   

Ideal nanny:  We’re looking for an energetic, healthy and attentive individual with multiple years of experience caring for infants and toddlers. We expect our caregiver to create a loving and safe environment and to engage with our children to foster learning and development appropriate for their ages through play, music, art, cooking, movement, conversation and time outdoors. We’ll want great references and will conduct a basic background check. Infant First Aid & CPR training and a clean driving record required. No smoking, vaping, or drugs.

Thanks for your consideration!  If you think you have a situation that might be a good fit, please email Kristin Dahl at kristin.dahl@gmail.com, or call 503-784-1072.

PT SPANISH TODDLER DROP-OFF PLAYGROUP/ PRESCHOOL LIGHT (INNER SE)

January 11, 2018

We are looking for one more toddler to join our very small Spanish home-based toddler play group. Parents drop their kids off for a three hour morning of activities, led by our wonderful native Spanish speaking teacher. The teacher has been running the same ‘escuela’ for the last ten years.

The ‘escuela’ meets from 9:30am to 12:30pm on Wednesday and Friday mornings. There will be at least four, but no more than five, kids aged between 1.5 and 3 years old. The teacher speaks to the children almost exclusively in Spanish. Their day consists of outdoor play, arts and crafts, music and dancing, and parent packed snack and lunch times.

The weekly cost per child is $50 (plus a small contribution for art supplies). We host the playgroup in one of the family’s home near Mt Tabor/upper Hawthorne (near SE 50th/Salmon St).

Please call or email Sarah for more information at 541-805-2212 or Sarah dot Figliozzi at gmail.com. 

Thank you!

P/T Nanny Share Available in NE

January 10, 2018

Hello! I am a professional nanny working full-time for a wonderful family of four in NE (Killingsworth and 32nd Pl.) With toddler Bayleigh beginning preschool on M/W/F, we now have a spot available for one child to join me and baby Miller (11 months) 2-3 days/wk, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8-4 (with the addition of Fridays from 8-4 if desired). We welcome a child of any age to join us for gentle, age appropriate play at the family home, where books, music, crafts, and nutritious food reign supreme! We get out to the parks, play areas, and libraries regularly, and use an intuitive, screen-free approach to safe, loving, silly care. We are a pretty laid-back group who love each other enormously and are looking for a warm family and adorable kiddo to join our crew.

As a nanny of 20 years with a Master’s degree in Creative Writing and a teaching background, I adore my role as an early educator and nanny, and like to balance my caregiving experience with the values of my employers. I’ve worked with multiples, infants, and lots of nanny shares. I’ll be conducting initial interviews and answering questions, so feel free to reach me at avlenahan@gmail.com. The joining rate for this share will be $13/hour and can begin as soon as we find a good fit! Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2018!

Wildflowers Preschool Open House

January 08, 2018

Wildflowers Preschool will be holding and Open House on Thur, Jan 18th from 11-11:30.  We will be enrolling for Fall of 2018!  Our minimum requirements for preschool readiness are that your child is 3 years old and potty trained.  Please stop in if you'd like to have a tour of our school-children are welcome!

Wildflowers Preschool is a neighborhood preschool located in a comfortable home in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood.  The director and lead teacher, Heidi Donahue, has a Master's in Environmental Education and has created a curriculum that is a unique mix of Reggio Emilia, Montessori and Environmental Education.  All three approaches to early childhood education give children some control over the direction of their learning, highlight the importance of using all senses to learn and honor the endless range of ways children have to express themselves.  We provide an environment where children feel safe and part of a small community of families and teachers working together to meet the needs of each child.  We offer daily circle times, literacy lessons, music and movement, art activities and lots of exploration of the natural world.  We believe that children learn best when they are allowed to follow their natural curiosities about the world.

Any questions can be sent to Heidi Donahue at heidijandro@hotmail.com or feel free to call 503-774-1207.
