Summer Nanny Share in N/NE

Hi Families,

We are looking for a family to join a part-time nanny share with us in N/NE Portland for the summer. We have already found a terrific nanny (experienced, CPR certified) and are looking for another kiddo of similar age to share two days a week with our 3-month old daughter. 

Tuesdays & Thursdays

8:30-5:00 (hours may be somewhat flexible)

July and August

We live in N. Portland, near Peninsula Park and are happy to host the nanny share in our home (pet free and smoke free). Please contact me if you are interested. Lauralouisekoch at gmail.com or 503-758-8239.

 

 

Infant Nanny Share Opening in NE (Irvington)!

Hello, families! My name is Ashley, and I have been working with infants and toddlers for many years and find tremendous joy in it. I have found a wonderful family to work with beginning in July, and we are looking for a second family to join us in a nanny share. Their daughter will be almost 5 months old when care begins (she is currently two months old), and we would love to find a second child close in age. The family lives near Irving Park, and ideally we would like to find a second family close by (within a 10 minute drive) who would be willing to host care in their home some of the time. I can be available to begin care in May or June if you need care sooner, and then transition into the share when they need care in July. They only need care T-Th most weeks, so there would be two children on those days, and just your child on Monday and Friday. 

 

We are looking for someone who is needing full-time care (close to 40 hours/week). Available hours are as follows, with some flexibility: 

 

M: 8-5

T: 8-4:30

W: 8-5

Th: 8-4p

F: 8-5

 

I have some flexibility with start time daily, and with end times on M/W/F. I am also open to someone looking for 4 days per week, with either Monday or Friday off. 

 

More about me: 

I practice respectful communication and positive discipline in my work with infants and toddlers. I am familiar with RIE, and incorporate many aspects of this philosophy into my care. Some of these include supporting natural gross motor development, sensitive observation of children and their learning, including children in caregiving activities, trusting infants to be active learners, providing consistency in schedule and environment, and basing all interactions in respect. 

 

I would love to work with a family who supports child-led learning and play. Colors, numbers, words, and shapes are all around us. Children's innate desire to play and learn, and their curiosity about the world, prime them to learn all of these things as they are naturally ready. Rather than working from a set curriculum, I believe that my role is to help scaffold and guide children's natural learning by providing a developmentally appropriate environment with open-ended materials that challenge and support their interests, and that grows and changes with them. 

 

Being a new parent comes with all sorts of new experiences and challenges. I am happy to support you in introducing solid foods to your baby, helping your baby learn the skills to sleep independently (sleep training), and helping to set up and maintain a developmentally appropriate play space, along with other things! I am comfortable working with breast milk and formula, and cloth or disposable diapers. 

 

I have experience working with multiple infants in both a center environment and in a nanny share set-up. 

 

We would love to talk with you if this sounds like it would fit with your needs! I am happy to share more about myself and my caregiving philosophy, and have a resume and references available upon request. Please contact me by email at ashleydrummondak@gmail.com. 

 

 

We look forward to hearing from you! 

 

Looking for explorer to join our playschool in Sellwood!

April 24, 2017

AaaaaThree giggly, curious, adventurous two-year-olds and I are looking for another explorer to join our group! We're somewhere between a nanny-share and a play-based preschool, and have room for one child to join us 2-3 days per week from 8:30 - 4:30, and for one child to join us 1-2 days per week from 8:30 - 12:00. 

We spend our days working with sensory and open-ended materials, exploring the outdoors, and developing the focus that comes with working on an activity that is freely chosen. We're big believers in kindness, social curiosity and exploration, natural consequences, discipline without shame, and the inherent wonder of childhood.

If you'd like to join us, please contact se.playschool@gmail.com for more information. Thanks for reading!

April 19, 2017

Hello! I am an experienced nanny looking for a new position as I move from Seattle to Portland. I am seeking a nanny share position for about ~30 hours/wk beginning in June! I have worked as a fulltime professional nanny since June 2013. During this time period I have formed lasting and deep relationships with the wonderful families I have worked for!

My childcare philosophy draws from RIE, Montessori, and attachment/gentle parenting. I've primarily worked with toddlers and infants, and I am continually amazed by their curiosity, compassion, intelligence, and energetic awareness! I believe in treating children with respect, honoring their innate wisdom, and doing my own internal work so that I can be the most compassionate and loving caregiver possible. I’m a big believer in natural and unassisted motor development, supporting independent play, teaching consent early, giving children the space to figure things out on their own (you won’t see me demonstrating how to use a toy!), involving even young children in daily tasks around the house such as cooking and cleaning, and holding supportive emotional containers for big toddler emotions.

I am familiar with Montessori philosophies, Waldorf pedagogy, RIE tenants, baby led weaning, babywearing, cloth diapering, elimination communication, gentle sleep training, co-sleeping, extended breastfeeding, and alternative pediatric medicine. I also work as a birth doula and am in the midst of my postpartum doula certification.

If you are interested in speaking further, please email me at es.whrit@icloud.com

Warmly,
Esmé

At Mini Me Infant Care we provide Personalized Boutique style care. Based on your child's unique schedule, stage of development, and their individual needs. We are an "ALL INCLUSIVE PROGRAM".

Seeking PT Spanish-speaking nanny share for a 3 month-old in July (NE/King)

My first child was born March 29th,and I would love to set up a part-time Spanish-speaking nanny share for when my maternity leave is over in July. I’d like to share the nanny with another family who has an infant or toddler, has similar values and schedule and who is interested in raising bilingual children.
I am hoping the nanny will speak only Spanish to the two children, feed them healthy food and make time for reading, crafts, downtime, play and outdoor activities. I am looking for a nanny who is trained in infant CPR/First Aid and who is perhaps familiar with the Montessori method. I’m considering $9 an hour per family based on experience.
I am happy to host in my home or to host half of the time. I live near the King School. I am a non-smoker and have two cats. My parents will be helping with childcare so I can be flexible in terms of hours and days. I am thinking around 20-24 hours a week. I work 8am-5pm Mon-Fri.
Potential nanny or family who wants to share a nanny? Please contact Trinity at trinityjpb at gmail or 617-304-6700. I look forward to talking more.
Thanks!

SWEET RIVER BAMBOO PRESCHOOL & NURSERY NOW ENROLLING! NE PDX

April 13, 2017


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.

New Italian Kindergarten Offers One-of-a-Kind Program in Portland Metro

April 12, 2017

123456 prek

Throughout Portland, kindergarten programs abound.  However, there is none quite like the new Scuola Italiana Kindergarten program which is slated to open next fall.  This unique program offers both Italian and English language instruction by fusing Italian language and culture together with the necessary English language kindergarten skills to create well rounded, world citizens equipped to enter any first-grade classroom.

Did you know that providing foreign language opportunities to kids is truly a gift that keeps on giving?  There are plenty of studies that illustrate the truly amazing and lifelong benefits associated with learning a foreign language.  Better problem solving skills, higher test scores, greater overall academic success are just a few of those advantages.  Now who doesn’t want that for their child?!  Additionally, children im
mersed in second language at an early age have the very real possibility of becoming native-fluent in that language.

It is not necessary to have Italian language experience yourself to enroll your child in kindergarten.  Our teachers understand that most parents will not know Italian, and they are prepared to share tried and true tips, fun and educational resources, and other helpful information that empowers you support your child’s progress.  For parents who might wish to learn the language simultaneously, we offer a comprehensive adult program

If your child is not yet ready for kindergarten, Scuola Italiana has several other wonderful opportunities available for you and your child.  We can begin by sharing Italian language with you and your child as early as 18 months through our free Mommy and Me Playgroup.  Playgroup is designed for toddlers aged 18 – 42 months old.  We also have an excellent Reggio Emilia inspired preschool program and after school and weekend classes too.   Summer culture camps are open between June and August when regular classes are not in session.

If you’d like to learn more about our new, one-of-a-kind kindergarten program or any of the other children’s classes, please join Scuola Italiana teachers and staff for an open house on Saturday, April 29th from noon to 2:00 pm.  The open house is at 1542 NW 14th AVE, Portland, OR 97209 (14th & Quimby).

Can’t make our open house?  Please email questions or arrange a visit at info@scuola.us.

Since 2006, Scuola Italiana has operated with a mission to promote the Italian language and culture to children and adults in a student-centered environment; nurturing responsible, global citizens by providing cross-cultural understanding and fostering a deep appreciation for world civilizations that intersect with the Italian culture.

Loving, Gentle, and Respectful Infant Nanny Available!

Hello! My name is Ashley, and I am a nanny in search of an infant care position.  I have been working with infants and toddlers for several years and find tremendous joy in it. I am currently looking for a full-time (approx 40 hours/week) position caring for one or two infants. I would really like to find a family looking for a long-term commitment of at least one year. 

 

I practice respectful communication and positive discipline in my work with infants and toddlers. I am familiar with RIE, and incorporate many aspects of this philosophy into my care. Some of these include supporting natural gross motor development, sensitive observation of children and their learning, including children in caregiving activities, trusting infants to be active learners, providing consistency in schedule and environment, and basing all interactions in respect. 

 

I would love to work with a family who supports child-led learning and play. Colors, numbers, words, and shapes are all around us. Children's innate desire to play and learn, and their curiosity about the world, prime them to learn all of these things as they are naturally ready. Rather than working from a set curriculum, I believe that my role is to help scaffold and guide children's natural learning by providing a developmentally appropriate environment with open-ended materials that challenge and support their interests, and that grows and changes with them. 

 

Being a new parent comes with all sorts of new experiences and challenges. I am happy to support you in introducing solid foods to your baby, helping your baby learn the skills to sleep independently (sleep training), and helping to set up and maintain a developmentally appropriate play space, along with other things! I am comfortable working with breast milk and formula, and cloth or disposable diapers. 

 

I have experience working with multiple infants in both a center environment and in a nanny share set-up. I'm happy to share more about my background!

 

I am looking for a family or nanny share with one or two infants to begin building a relationship with. If you are interested in talking further, please contact me at ashleydrummondak@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you!

Looking to join or create nanny share in SE

April 04, 2017

Hello! We are looking to join or create a nanny share for our 8-month-old girl beginning April 25th ideally located between the S tabor neighborhood and the river. Schedule would be Tues- Fri, 8-4:30. We’re happy to host but are willing to split the schedule between homes. We’re also open to a ”share” where a nanny brings her own little to our house.

A little bit about our family… Our babe is generally mellow and super cheerful and she is on the move! We also have an energetic 4-year-old girl who is in preschool as well as a sweet, old golden retriever. I work as a graphic designer and my husband has his own small architecture firm. We love to spend our non-working hrs biking, skiing, running, camping, etc. and involve our kiddos in all these activities. 

Our home is in the S Tabor neighborhood between Clinton Park and Mt Tabor. We are set up to host a share with plenty of space including a dedicated, newly remodeled playroom. There is also an extra, separate sleep space and we have a double stroller.

Looking for a Second Child for a Private Waldorf Preschool Class

March 27, 2017

We have a very sensitive sensory girl who is 4.5 and who does not do well in preschool because of the number of children.  Her last preschool teacher (a certified Waldorf teacher) offered to host a two hour, once per week preschool session for her and one other child.  This teacher and her preschool are absolutely amazing!  We are looking for one other child between the ages of 3 and 5 who would join us for this adventure.  Maybe another sensory child like her who struggles with larger groups of children.  Or, a non-sensory child who is quiet and would like the opportunity to experience a beautiful Waldorf school once per week.

We would meet for two hours on Thursday afternoons.  The preschool is on Mt. Scott. 

Please contact Heather at hblankenheim@gmail.com if you are interested.

Hey, mamas! Our sweet nanny is moving on and we are left in a tough spot of trying to find another loving caretaker within two weeks. We are open to having someone in our home again, sharing someone else's awesome nanny, daycare, etc. The most we can pay and this would be for an in-home caretaker, would be $13/hour (employer taxes are insane!). We know this isn't top dollar but it's balanced by incredibly easy kids and we pay even for our time away when we are out of town. Our schedule "was" Mon - Wed 8:15 - 6:15 and we'd love to have this schedule again. We also have our sweet 10 year old with us every other week (share time with her dad). Please let us know if you or an amazing care provider you know is accepting 14 month old little one. tskili2003@yahoo.com

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 8 years now, but before this, I was a childcare teacher at Legacy Emanuel's Childcare center.

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 (ages 4 months, 7 months, a 2 year old, and a 2 and a half year old).

Preschool Winner

March 16, 2017

Seeking PT Spanish-speaking nanny share for a 3 month-old in July (NE/King)
I am expecting my first child in April and would love to set up a part-time Spanish-speaking nanny share for when my maternity leave is over in July. I’d like to share the nanny with another family who has an infant or toddler, has similar values and schedule and who is interested in raising bilingual children.
I am hoping the nanny will speak only Spanish to the two children, feed them healthy food and make time for reading, crafts, downtime, play and outdoor activities. I am looking for a nanny who is trained in infant CPR/First Aid and who is perhaps familiar with the Montessori method. I’m considering $9 an hour per family based on experience.
I am happy to host in my home or to host half of the time. I live near the King School. I am a non-smoker and have two cats. My parents will be helping with childcare so I can be flexible in terms of hours and days. I am thinking around 20-24 hours a week. I work 8am-5pm Mon-Fri.
Potential nanny or family who wants to share a nanny? Please contact Trinity at trinityjpb at gmail or 617-304-6700. I look forward to talking more.
Thanks!
