5-Star Rated Concordia Montessori has One Rare Preschool Opening

September 29, 2016

Concordia Montessori is a small, private in-home Montessori community providing an affordable, quality, full-day educational environment in our NE Portland neighborhood.  Our primary program serves children aged 2.5 - 6 years old who are ready to transition out of their toddler programs and who are using the toilet independently.  This classroom, established in 2010, is led by an AMS credentialed Montessori lead guide who has taught for more than 17 years and a highly experienced full-time assistant. 

We are state-certified and hold a 5-star quality rating from the State of Oregon.  Our large outdoor space allows children to be outside each day - running, climbing, and exploring and caring for our large organic food garden and small chicken flock.  Inside, our authentic Montessori manipulatives and lessons entice exploration and experimentation in language, science, culture, art, music, physical movement, and math.  Please visit our website at www.concordiamontessori.com for more details about our program and how to apply for this last minute availability for the 2016-17 school year.

Seeking Infant Nanny-share in SE Starting March 2017

Hi, we are seeking a family to join a nanny share with our soon-to-be born son. We anticipate care starting in March, at which point he'll be a little over 3-months old. 

We are parents in our mid-30s who value the outdoors, music, free play and quality family time! 

We are still working on finding a care provider. If you have secured a care provider, we'd also be willing to join you! We will be planning on providing care Monday-Friday, full time. We'd prefer a family close by to our house (near Mt. Tabor Park), but location can be split between houses or all care can happen under our roof. 

If you are interested, please email me (Annie) at anniebryant@gmail.com to discuss further.

Thanks for thinking of us! 

Babysitter available days and evenings!

About me:

  • Master's degree in Art Therapy with children
  • Former Preschool Teacher
  • Skilled with Infants
  • Former Children's Museum Educator
  • Lots of Nanny experience
  • CPR & First Aid certified

I'm available evenings, weekends, and some weekdays.  I usually have one full weekday open per week.  The day varies, but I know my schedule a month in advance.  I'm currently nannying for a wonderful boy (who I've been with for 6 years) and a delightful 2 year old girl. 

I look forward to meeting your family!

SWEET RIVER BAMBOO PRESCHOOL & NURSERY HAS OPENINGS! NE PDX

September 19, 2016

IMG_1702

Sweet River Bamboo Preschool & Nursery is a LifeWays and Waldorf inspired program nurturing the spirit of childhood. Located in NE Portland, we are a predominantly Waldorf program and take inspiration from Montessori and Reggio philosophies to create an environment that is well balanced and suited to the social/emotional development of the young  child.  

A year round program, we are a small and mindful group of 2 teachers and 8 children from 18m-kindergarten ready. Enrollment options are for one, two, or three days a week:  Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 8:30a-12:30p. or 8:45a-2:45p.

Held in a loving home surrounded by beauty and toys made of natural materials, a gentle rhythm carries children through open play, song circles, outside adventures (we are right by Oregon Park!) and rest. Painting, arts and crafts and baking are other activities we do together weekly. Influenced greatly by nature's rhythm, acknowledgment of and festive celebrations of the seasons are a big deal at Sweet River Bamboo! 


Lead Teacher Sara (Sahra) is a Waldorf inspired teacher with 20 years of childcare experience with children of all ages. Her time with children has taught her how to slow down, find playful moments in every activity, and to stay present, loving and kind. Sara has learned that encouraging creativity and being out in nature daily is imperative for the well being of children (and adults!) She has observed that placing children in mixed age environments that are warm and loving is immensely helpful in aiding their ability to learn, thrive and grow securely and whole heartedly. Sara brings warmth, creativity, intention and love to the children in her care and holds a nourishing container for the preschool group as a whole. Sara's multi cultural and multi lingual background and years of extensive world travel bring a nice flavor to the school. Her decade long exploration of psychology, dance and various forms of mindful movement practices influence the curriculum greatly. 

Space is limited as we keep our group small.  Please contact Sara at 503-432-6414 or saralizadeh@hotmail.com with your interest and questions. A complete overview of the program including tuition rates will be provided via email at your request.

Seeking family to share care in N/NE/SE Portland

September 14, 2016

Hi! We recently hired a fantastic nanny and are looking to share care with another family; we have an almost 3 year old (November birthday) girl and a 3 month old girl (born in June). We are located in NE Portland (Rose City Park) and would be looking to share care up to 4 days a week, generally between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm. 

A little about us- We are working parents- my husband is in sales and I'm a policy analyst with a local non-profit- of an active, curious and happy toddler. Our 3 month old is already an easy second- mellow and goes with the flow of her older sister! We believe in letting our toddler experience/explore without hovering  and are always ready to support/teach. We eat healthy (but are not overly organic and allow some sugar in her diet), encourage outside play, limit screen time and do maintain daily routines as much as possible. We do have a 6 year old black lab that thinks he is one of the "girls". 

We have had a nanny caring for our toddler for the duration of her life; we just started with our current nanny and do have past experience with shares with our former nanny. We are happy to share care between our homes or host the share. Our new nanny is also well versed in shares as her last family also used shared care. She is kind, very warm towards the girls, engages them in appropriate play (she brings her own bag of goodies, including books, wraps for infants etc.) and is very comfortable with our routine. She is a graduate of the NW Nannies Institute and can provide references/information as requested. 

We are looking for a family that would be looking for similar hours of care (with the possibility that could use the nanny on the 5th day if need full time care), has a toddler close in age to our toddler (may consider more than 1 child) and is willing to pay between $10-12/hour for shared care, with taxes deducted (can show you how to do that!). 

If you are interested and would like to explore sharing care with us, please email Danielle at thesobes at gmail.com. 

We look forward to hearing from you!

High Quality Nannies On-Call 24/7

September 13, 2016

Portland-nanny-logo

Hi UrbanMamas!

I started an on-call nanny agency a few months ago, Portland Nanny. We specialize in emergency, back-up and intermittent childcare needs. I started this company because I am a stay at home mom who needed quality care irregularly and had trouble finding QUALITY care exactly when I needed it. So, I started Portland Nanny. 

 

Child home sick from school? Regular childcare fell through? Need a date night sitter? That is where we can help! We do it all. I essentially have 3-5 nannies on call at all times. 

 
ALL of our nannies are EXCEPTIONAL. I would trust them all with my children, and do! They are thoroughly background checked, infant and child CPR trained, have years of experience in childcare (with references to back up that they were exceptional!), and are seriously just awesome. 

 

Let us help you when life happens! Everyone deserves quality childcare, no matter how last minute or how infrequently you need it!

Looking for families interested in Infant/Toddler Play School!

Screen Shot 2016-09-13 at 12.11.22 PM

Hello everyone! I currently nanny for a wonderful family and their giggly 22-month-old daughter in Sellwood. Beginning this fall, she and I will be joined by two other children for an informal, hands-on play school emphasizing creative, imaginative, child-directed play in her home. 

I’m very excited about it and would absolutely love to find three families closer to my own neighborhood (Ladd’s Addition) interested in hosting something similar 2-3 days per week. I’d be open to caring for any group preschool-aged or younger, although I’d like for the children to be within a few months of each other. You could be a family with one or two others in mind already, or a single family interested in connecting with others. I'd be ready to start as soon as I connected with 
1) three children close in age with similar schedules (e.g. Mondays/Wednesdays) 
2) parents willing to host the group at their house, or who are interested in rotating holding the group at their house, or rotating with the rest of the group. I'd set everything up at the beginning of the day and clean everything up at the end, of course! 

A bit about me: I have extensive experience with infants and toddlers. I’ve been caring for children for ten years, and have spent five years as a full-time, professional nanny. I have stellar references to exemplify this experience, recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, and have taken a variety of child-centered courses. I’m also certified in Pediatric First Aid and CPR.

I have had the pleasure of working with several highly-regarded preschool centers in the area, including ChildRoots, Tumbleweed, Tiny Revolution Montessori and Chestnut Grove Montessori. My vision for the play school would combine all of the best aspects of my experiences there with the flexibility and personalization of a very small group. My personal philosophy when working with children has been drawn from those of Magda Gerber and Janet Lansbury (RIE), Loris Malguzzi (Reggio), and Maria Montessori. We will spend our days working with sensory and open-ended materials, developing the focus that comes with working on an activity that is freely chosen. I’m a big believer in social curiosity and exploration, natural consequences, discipline without shame, and the natural wonder of childhood. When working with children, I follow a child-led daily rhythm, taking time when working on new skills (like learning to feed and dress yourself) and making room for the big emotions that come with ever-increasing independence.

If you’re interested in a home-based, highly customizable, very playful introduction to preschool for your infant or toddler (or are just curious!) please contact me here or at se.playschool@gmail.com. Looking forward to talking with you!

Space is limited as we keep our group small.  Please contact Sara at 503-432-6414 or saralizadeh@hotmail.com with your interest and questions. A complete overview of the program including tuition rates will be provided via email at your request. 


Thank you for considering this magical program for your child!

Tuesday - Friday Toddler Space available at The Earth Tortoise Montessori School

The Earth Tortoise School is a small infant and toddler Montessori program located in East Portland. With a community of only 16 children and 5 teacher, we are able to provide individualized and respectful care to each child, fostering a strong sense of attachment and security, a love of the natural world and of community, and a developing sense of confidence and intrinsic optimism. The classroom is the children's space to explore freely and learn together. So we work hard at creating a beautiful and peaceful environment that allows the children to be relaxed and comfortable and happy.

Community is very important to us. We hope to create a place for families that feels like an extension of their home, a network of support that begins during pregnancy and extends out until your child is ready to move into the larger world. We are currently an intimate in-home school for children 3 months to 3 years old. We see this time as one for free exploration and developing a sense of self. Infants are just learning about their own bodies and developing the abilities they will need for all later learning. Toddlers are coming into their own. They are learning their place in the world, developing and refining their skills, and asserting their independence. The classroom is the children's space - child-sized, beautiful, and completely accessible to their need for doing things on their own. It is a peaceful place that gives them the chance to choose what they want to work on within a routine that is predictable and limits that help them feel secure. Learning develops the whole child - physically, cognitively, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. There are no "right" answers but only more exciting questions. And we love to share their enthusiasm with them in an attitude of acceptance, patience, and love.

Because one of our enrolled families had some unexpected changes in their lives, we now have an opening for a child 12 months and up in our toddler classroom on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

If you are interested in learning more please contact us at theearthtortoiseschool@gmail.com for a Parent Handbook and to schedule a tour. Or feel free to call us at (503) 257-4783

Thanks so much and we look forward to hearing from your family!
