Join us in a Nannyshare- SE Portland

May 10, 2015

Our family is looking for a new child to join our nanny share in Southeast Portland. (Sunnyside)

Our nanny began working with us when our daughter was three months and she is now 13 months. The family who joined us in a nanny share is planning a summer trip and will no longer be with us so we are looking for a new family to engage in a share with through mid July.

There's a potential for the new family to extend care with the nanny beyond mid July however we will be ending our contract with her then, because we are planning a trip of our own beginning July 17. Our nanny is absolutely amazing and has tons of experience working with multiple children. We currently have care at our house in Sunnyside but are willing to consider other options as we know setting up a nanny shares requires flexibility ;-)

If any or all of this sounds interesting please email/text or call.

Looking for new daycare in SW (S. Burlingame neighborhood)

We have a 23 month toddler and will be moving to the S. Burlingame neighborhood (very close to Capitol Hill Elementary School) at the end of May. We are looking for a new daycare 5 days a week that ideally provides breakfast, lunch and snacks. We usually drop our child off right before 8am and pick him up around 5pm; however, we occasionally (every few weeks) may need to drop him off earlier on Thurs morning around 6:45am. Our previous daycare had a wonderful webcam system where we could "check in" and watch our little one throughout the day. That would be a huge plus. Does anyone know of any daycare facilities that would meet our requirements, and has an opening starting May 25, 2015? I haven't really found anywhere in the Portland metro that has webcams at the daycare facility (would be a huge plus, but not mandatory so long as the center offers high quality care). Please contact Minh at minh.bingham@gmail.com.  thank you

Childcare Wizard available for short-term and on-call basis in N and NE Portland.


Spring greetings! 

I am a dynamic, nature-loving nanny working part-time with a fantastic family. I am currently looking for temporary and/or on-call work to round out my schedule. If you are looking for an experienced and dependable person to help out when your nanny gets sick, when you need a date night, or when you are transitioning between childcare, I may be your guy. Since I relocated here a year and a half ago I have worked closely with three families in the Sabin and King neighborhoods. All their babies were under one year of age when I started with them and I still provide childcare occasionally. I have stellar references and love establishing rapport with the families I work with.

My trusty bicycle, Sunny, will transport me all over North and Northeast Portland in punctual and dependable style. I live in Cully and do not own a vehicle and therefore prefer not to travel outside of N and NE Portland. I work on a sliding scale basis, starting at $14 - $17 per hour. Rates vary for shares, multiple children, etc. Ask me about it!

About me: I am a childcare wizard with over 10 years of experience. I have the most experience with little ones 3 months to 3 years of age. I have a background in teaching (pre-K - 12th grade), from language classes to special education to outdoor education. My experience in pre-K included Waldorf and Montessori modalities. I am CPR and First Aid certified (June 2014) and I am Trustline Certified (includes a background check).

About my style: I am an active, creative, and unique caregiver with a good sense of humour. Spending most of my days with little ones, I like to keep it fresh. As a career nanny, parents often ask for my advice in regards to their children's mysterious behaviour. I do not have a textbook childcare philosophy, and enjoy drawing on techniques across a range of styles. With flexibility, I like to work with the parents and children to find something that suites everyone.

I like to explore nature, establish strong attachment and trust through affection, and foster creativity and personality through art, songs, and storytelling. I am a naturalist and herbalist, so most of my outdoor adventures with littles involve relating to plant life small and large. With toddlers I like to dance, garden, cook, and have curious conversations. With younger babies my care includes lots of love and touch, baby wearing, floor exploration, singing and reading practice. I have experience working with parents to establish daily rhythms, including feeding and sleep training. I really believe in none to very little exposure of technology and sugar for children under five. I have potty training experience, and love talking to kids about poop!

I have experience with a wide range of parents, children, and care styles. I am a sensitive caregiver and enjoy diversity, and have loved working with LGBTQ and alternative families and those with unique life perspectives.

Get in touch with me if you think we could be a good fit. My email is artemisia248@gmail.com and my phone is 619.995.9262.

Warmly, Sam

Hosting an au pair is a flexible and affordable childcare solution. Might it be right for you? Some basic facts:

-Au pairs may provide up to 45 hours of flexibly scheduled childcare for $360 per week which is usually far less than the cost of a nanny.

-Au pairs are also able to do light housework associated with childcare such as dishes or getting dinner started.

-Being a host family offers a great cultural exchange experience for your family while sharing American culture with a young person from abroad. Au pairs are able to remain with their host families for a period of up to two years.

Seeking a loving, reliable nanny for our three-month old in our home.  We are looking for someone to come in 2-3 days per week, mostly for mornings and early afternoons.  We'd like someone for 15-20 hours per week.  Someone with availability for some babysitting on occasional evenings would be ideal, but not a requirement. 

We work from home, so need someone comfortable with that and our two lovely cats.  We'd like someone also comfortable with very light housework.   We're not too fussy, and will value someone with a great attitude and able to be flexible with us within reason.  

Please have your own transportation.  Contact nlarace@gmail.com if you're interested.

Join us in a nannyshare! Sunnyside, SE Portland (Month of June-July)

April 07, 2015

Our family is looking for a new child to join our nanny share in Southeast Portland. (Sunnyside)

Our nanny began working with us when our daughter was three months and she will be turning one in April. The family who joined us in a nanny share is planning a summer trip and will no longer be with us so we are looking for a new family to engage in a share with through mid July.

There's a potential for the new family to extend care with the nanny beyond mid July however we will be ending our contract with her then, because we are planning a trip of our own beginning July 17. Our nanny is absolutely amazing and has tons of experience working with multiple children. We currently have care at our house in Sunnyside but are willing to consider other options as we know setting up a nanny shares requires flexibility ;-)

If any or all of this sounds interesting please email/text or call.

Creative, experienced, and joyful Nanny available in SE

April 06, 2015

My name is Katy and I am a 28 year old, college educated, creative and FUN nanny living in the Mt. Scott/Arleta neighborhood of SE. One of the mothers I  worked for is reducing her work schedule to spend more time with her  awesome kiddos, so I am searching for another lovely family to work for.  
 
I have great references! All will attest to my honest, strong work ethic, excellent childcare skills and easygoing, warm personality. I have over 10 years of childcare, teaching, and tutoring experience.  3+ years of gymnastics and theater teaching experience has made movement and creativity the crux of the childcare I provide! I speak Spanish very proficiently and would be more than happy to incorporate the Spanish language into my care, as well. Children in my charge with enjoy nature walks, creative outdoor play, games and songs. In my spare time, I am studying herbalism. I intern 4 hours a week at the Hawthorne Herb Shoppe. I love sharing my love for plants with children. We always stop and smell the roses!
 
I have the most experience caring for and teaching toddlers. I would prefer to work with one or two toddlers, but am open to any age if it's the right fit :) I love caring for children of all ages. A typical day with me and a toddler would look like Story time at the library, followed by adventures at the playground, singing improvised songs about plants and animals, movement based and creative games, and consistent nap schedule. I am also experienced with potty training toddlers and am very attentive, always positive and encouraging. I am very invested in supporting and fostering children's natural creativity, curiosity and brilliance! 
 
I am very happy to work for all varieties of families and as a queer person, I welcome and celebrate LGBTQ families. I would love to work for a family that celebrates diversity, culture and natural healthy living.
 
I would prefer to work for a family relatively close to my neighborhood, as I love to ride my bike to work! I have a drivers license, vehicle, and squeaky clean driving record.  I'd  prefer to drive my employer's vehicle if driving is part of my work responsibilities.  I'd be more than happy to hitch a trailer on my bicycle! I'm an excellent, highly experienced and safe city cyclist. That is more my style of transportation :)  
 
I am ideally looking to work 3-4 full weekdays/week, but am open to other options for the right fit. I work on a sliding scale depending on the number of children and responsibilities of the position.  Feel free to contact me about rates and other details. I hope to get the opportunity to meet you and your family soon! Thank you so much for taking the time to read my posting :)

MWF Nanny Share in Sellwood

April 01, 2015

We have a wonderful nanny for our 19 month 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 first baby  who has now moved on to preschool and now for our 19 month old. We are ready to add a third child to the nanny share (we had a three-child share with our older daughter and it was wonderful).

The schedule: MWF from 8am to 5pm but we are open to slightly different hours if needed. She is with another family on T/TH and they may be open to a share on their days too so let me know if you'd like to consider that option.

The location: We are open to a combination of our house and your house if they are close together on our commute to work. 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 (with an organic mattress :) ).  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 per family for 3 kids but please have the flexibility to occasionally pay $8.00/hour because our second family may have to leave the share for a short-time.

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!  You can reach me at amandamortlock[@]gmail.com

Seeking P/T Nanny or Nanny Share with Another Family in SE/Mt Tabor

March 26, 2015

Hello! We're looking for a wonderful, loving nanny for our 6-month old son. We are also open to a nanny share with another family who lives nearby (within easy walking distance).  We live in Mt. Tabor near 50th/Hawthorne. We're looking for someone 2 days a week, ~ 8 hours a day (~ 9-5), ideally Mon/Weds or Tues/Thurs but we may have some flexibility on the days (other than Fridays, when we do not need care). Care would be in our home.

We're looking for someone who is warm, bright, reliable, thoughtful, who has a gentle, tender manner, and is experienced with young babies. Ideally, we'd love someone who is also knowledgeable about the developmental stages/needs of young babies. We believe in fresh air every day, walks, lots of books!, cuddling and interactive play. We have two dogs, so our nanny will need to enjoy and be comfortable with dogs as well. We'd like the nanny to help with light housework/meal prep as time permits (our son's needs always coming first).

At some point, now or later, we'd love to find another nearby family *within easy walking distance of our house* for a nanny share. We want to simplify our lives, and minimize car trips, hence the "walkable" criteria.  Care could be split between our homes (probably alternating weeks). Ideally both families would have a baby similar in age (6 mos).  We have a laid  back parenting style, but work hard to create a loving, healthy and stimulating environment  for our son. We seek a family with similar values.

Please contact us at bmcd418@yahoo.com if you'd like to know more, thanks for your interest!  Amy and Brent
