Two families in inner SE Portland seek a nanny to share
We are the parents of two sweet and happy little girls – each will be 6 months old when you start. We are looking for someone who can help our babies grow and thrive in a happy, stable environment. Our girls are kind, loving, energetic, and affable children. Since we live in a great area of Portland, we hope our nanny will help us expose them to the many activities available in our neighborhood as well as in other areas of the city.
Our houses are located one block away from one another and we will be
switching childcare locations every other week. We will need care 3.5/4 days a
week (approximately 8am-5:30pm) and rather than looking to pay an hourly rate,
we are offering a flat weekly rate of $425 per week. We are also looking for a
one year commitment starting in early January 2013.
Responsibilities: Your primary and most important responsibility will be the safety and well being of the children during the hours that we are away from home. During the day, we’d like you to provide a variety of activities to develop the children including reading to them, playing with them and their toys, arranging some classes for them (when they get a bit older), etc. Our expectation is that no television will be watched during the day. Weather permitting; we also would like to see the children have the opportunity to get outside at least once per day, unless of course they are sick. Possible places to visit are nearby parks and the local library (as they get older and can attend reading groups).
Qualifications: We are looking for someone who has at least 1-3 years experience working with infants aged 6 months+ and does not smoke. Some early childhood education is also preferred, but not necessary for the right fit. We are very much looking to find an enriching, long-term childcare experience for our daughters and welcome nannies looking help to contact us.
We look forward to hearing from you!
