PT opening in N Portland nanny share (Arbor Lodge)

October 22, 2014

We are two families (with 3 daughters between us) participating in a nanny share with an amazing nanny, and we are looking to add another child to the mix for part-time hours, as our childrens' schedules have shifted recently. 

Our daughters are 23 months, 27 months, and 4 years old, and occasionally another child from the neighborhood joins for a few hours. Everyone gets along great! We do the nanny share at the primary family's house in Arbor Lodge, which has a wonderful playroom set up like a Montessori classroom, a fenced backyard, and within walking distances to parks. Our nanny is incredible -- patient, kind, easy to work with, and always has lots of fun things planned for the kids to do (including a weekly outing fun places like OMSI, restaurants, libraries, and other kid-friendly sites). 

We're looking to find another child in the toddler or preschool age ranges to join our little group, for part-time care (10-15 hours a week would be ideal). Monday and Friday mornings (8am-noon) are the primary time slots we are looking to fill but other days/times may be available (except Thursdays).  Two children might be workable if it was primarily morning hours.

If you're in the N/NE area and are looking to join a great nanny share for part-time care, please get in touch with our nanny Sherrilyn at sherrilyn3@hotmail.com to discuss the details and if looks like a good fit we can arrange a meeting with the families. The rate is $8/hour for a single child. The opening is available immediately.

Inner Southeast Family and Nanny Looking for a Nanny Share

October 20, 2014

My husband and I have been lucky enough to find an amazing nanny for our 15 month old.  She’s been with us for 9 months.  She is responsible, creative, perceptive and beloved by our baby.  We all think it may be time for our daughter to have more time with other children and we are starting to look for another family in the area that may be interested in sharing our nanny’s time.

We use Anna, our nanny, variable hours because of my husband’s work schedule.  I work 7-6 M, W, Th, and F.  Anna works a portion of those days and times depending on my husband’s schedule.  What we’re looking for is another family who needs a nanny part time or full time.  When the hours between the two families don’t overlap Anna would just watch one child.  When they do overlap she’d watch both children at either of the houses.  We’d like to alternate houses to a certain extent, but would like to prioritize minimizing travel for the kids.

We pay Anna 15 dollars an hour.  For the nanny share it would be 10 dollars an hour.   The nanny share hours would be variable from month to month.  We have Anna 70-120 hours a month.  If this would be too unpredictable in terms of overlapping nanny share time Anna is open to salary as well.

We live around 50th and Division.  We have a house with a backyard that has a sandbox, grass, and a low deck to play on.  We have two large middle aged dogs that sometimes enjoy being a part of the excitement and sometimes like to nap out of the way.  If there is a project that needs to be dog-free, they have a room that we put them in.

Anna does a great job keeping our girl busy and entertained.  She graduated from the NW Nannies Institute and has child development knowledge that she incorporates in to their play.  They often do projects or creative play and usually make it outside on an adventure, whether it’s a local story time or a walk.  Anna is also teaching our daughter sign language and makes her healthy meals. 

Please email me-Amy amyvasher@gmail.com or Anna anna.boggs@rocketmail.com if you are interested in talking with us more.

School Philosophy

Mt. Tabor Preschool is a developmental, play-based, cooperative preschool. We believe that each child develops at a different rate physically, socially and intellectually. We endeavor to provide a wide variety of experiences to accommodate the children’s interests and needs as individuals and as a group. Experiences are provided to stimulate socialization skills and promote self-esteem.

Parental support and education are important aspects of preschool. A cooperative preschool gives parents an opportunity to participate in activities with their child. The success of a co-op preschool depends on parental involvement.The five main responsibilities of parents involve tuition, fundraising, parent-helping, preschool "jobs", and general membership meetings.
