DSC_5372

Need summer coverage? ChildRoots NW has openings!

At ChildRoots, we believe that children are capable and strong. They deserve beautiful spaces, high-quality materials, and curriculum that is built upon their interests. They deserve to be listened to and respected — their ideas are powerful. They deserve organic, whole foods; and spaces to run, jump, skip, and yell. They deserve a community that nurtures social and emotional intelligence and introduces letters and numbers. They deserve teachers that enliven their natural curiosity and foster a lifelong love of learning. We’re inspired by busy brains, running feet, and muddy puddles to stomp in. We ask questions, and respect each child’s innate curiosity. We look closer.

Our preschool program is influenced by the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. We believe that children are powerful, independent, and capable; and our program is designed to nurture these traits to build empowered, confident thinkers, dreamers, and tinkerers.

  • We’re committed to building community. Multiple school-wide and class events throughout the year bring us together for celebration, conversation, and shared experiences.
  • Our daily summer camp program offers children the chance to explore a variety of topics in small groups. See a sample atelier term schedule below.
  • On-site art studio offers each child the chance to experiment with a variety of different media, including sculpture, collage, printmaking, and textiles.

Week 1: Woodshop
Week 2: Horticulture
Week 3: Movement
Week 4: Animation

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.

M-F Nanny with T-Th share available

August 20, 2014

I am a nanny whose current full time family will be moving away in late August. I will miss them but am also looking forward to building a relationship with a new family.  I currently work for them M-Th and we do a share on T-Th with a delightfully verbal 2.5 yr old girl who I've been caring for since she was 6 mo old. I would like to maintain that relationship if possible. We're located in the Irvington area but open to NE and close in SE,  NW and SW on/near a bus or max line.I'm looking for a family who ideally needs care Mon-Thur and is open to a share on T-Th for a total of around ~30-35 hours a week +/-. I am also open to odd hours and overnights if that is what your schedule requires.

I am college educated and CPR trained and have several years experience caring for newborns through age 10. I am reliable, punctual and self-motivated. I do not have a car, so please be comfortable with us getting around by bus, bike or foot. I like to take the kids outside for an outing most days as long as the weather isn't completely heinous. We like to go to do all the usual outings and we also like to paint and do crafts as well as read and play. I am open to starting as early as Aug 18, or as late as Oct 20ish. Caveat:I have an overseas trip planned for Oct 9-18, so I'm open to temp jobs through Sept if I can't find a long term arrangement that can accomodate the trip. I am comfortable with newborns and big families. I would also be open to a rent exchange if you have a basement/attic room or studio apartment you want to rent. If you would like to talk with me further, I can be reached at greatportlandnanny@hotmail.com.

Thanks!

DSCN4276 

Portland, OREGON May 30, 2014 – Portland’s premier Italian language preschool is accepting registration for the 2014 – 15 school year. The Reggio Emilia, Italian immersion program is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am – 12:30 pm.  Children ages 3 to 5 years may enroll from one to five days per week.  The preschool is located at 1542 NW 14th Ave in the Zimmerman Community Center, in the Pearl District.  

Scuola Italiana Preschool is taught using one of the most respected approaches to education worldwide, the Reggio Emilia approach.  This approach fosters children’s intellectual development using the principles of respect, responsibility and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment. The program is led by Lara Carnovali, an experienced, native Italian teacher who came to Scuola Italiana from Milan, Italy.  To create the very best learning environment, Scuola Italiana preschool maintains a 4:1 student teacher ratio and limits class size to no more than 12 students.  This allows the teacher to focus closely on students and maximize learning.  Time is running out to visit the preschool before it closes for the summer on June 12th.  To arrange a visit, meet the teacher, and learn more about this excellent program, please email info@scuola.us or call 971-270-0471.

Fun-loving, Reliable, and Nurturing Nanny / Artist

April 16, 2014

Hi! My name is Shannon and I am a babysitter and nanny here in Portland. I have been babysitting for the past ten years and a nanny for the past five years, working with ages newborn through 8 years old, with extensive experience with infants and toddlers. I currently work full time as part of a nanny share for two families that each have two children, ranging in ages from 15 months through 5 years old. I have been with one family for a year and a half since their littlest was 10 weeks old! Schedules are changing for both families, as our my needs, so we are sadly going to be ending the share at the end of April. ----- I would like to be able to spend more time on my art and photography businesses and therefore I am hoping to find a new position 3 full days/week (8-10 hour days) and am flexible on which days those are. I am open to working more than 3 days per week on occasion and date nights as well. I am also open to another nanny share situation.

Infant/Toddler nanny seeking new family in inner pdx

September 21, 2011

Hello UM Community!

I am currently looking for a family with children 0-3 who need a loving and caring nanny.   I have over 10 years experience caring for children, including raising a step son. I have passed a National background check and Oregon's background check for child care workers. I am First Aid/CPR Certified and have obtained 400+ hours in Early Childhood Education. There for I am confident that I have the experience and the qualifications that you are seeking in a caregiver. I am a mature individual seeking a long term position. I feel that I am more than just a babysitter as I employ fun/educational activities and take the children on fun adventures at least once a week, usually more. I also ensure that all schedules are followed. I have many references to offer, as well as many more details to give.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience, so that we might discuss this further.  

Thank you,
Wendy

Nanny available Monday - Thursday, 1/2 days - Flexible

September 15, 2011

I am the mother of a 1 1/2 year old, and our wonderful nanny will now be available Monday-Thursday, all morning until 11:30am.

She is continuing to work as our nanny Part Time, but is available for the first part of the day, Monday-Thursday.

She has been our nanny for over 1 year, and she is wonderful. Our daughter loves and adores her, and the nanny loves her even more. She really connects with our child, interacts, and is just a natural. My husband and I worked from home for awhile and we got to see our daughter with our nanny. Needless to say we were more than happy with how she took care of our daughter. We get comments from our neighbors who see her at the park, walking in the neighborhood, etc. about how great she is with our daughter.

We live in the South Waterfront community near downtown Portland. Our nanny travels by bus & max train, so she is looking for someone else in the South Waterfront area or very close (downtown, South Waterfront).

She also does housekeeping while our daughter sleeps (dishes, laundry, sweeps floor).

Please email me with any questions, I'm doing the legwork for our great nanny, as she speaks english, but not 100%.

Fun & Artistic Daytime Nanny Available!

September 10, 2011

 Hi!

    My name is Shannon and I have been working as a nanny and sitter in Portland for the past two years. Prior to this I have several years of sitting experience in Florida as well. Most of my experience has been with 1-3 year olds (toddlers are my favorite age group!), but I also have a lot of experience with infants as young as 3 months and children as old as 6. I have taken care of two to four children, as well as one-on-one care, and have worked in a childcare center.

    I am currently looking for jobs that will begin soon and will continue to fit into my school schedule when classes start in a month. I will be available Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:00AM until around 4:30PM, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00AM until around 1:00PM, and all day on Fridays.

    I am very active and love going on trips to the park, indoor playgrounds, the library, the children's museum, children's music events, music together classes, art classes, and other activities. I have even participated in both baby and toddler swim lessons, children's yoga, and baby sign language classes - all here in Portland. I am a believer in children being actively engaged and stimulated, encouraging learning, discovery, and creativity. I love playing music, doing art projects, reading books, dancing around, and facilitating children's imagination. 

    I am pet-friendly, eco-friendly, have experience preparing vegan/vegetarian & organic meals, have experience with pumped milk, cloth-diaper experienced, potty-training experienced, little to no television, reading-heavy, active and get outside even on rainy days capable, and much much more!

    I have been CPR certified, but do need to renew sometime in the near future. I also have a very reliable car, which I have always used to transport my toddlers, and I am very punctual. $10-$12/hr is generally what I have been paid for caring for one child, and $12-$15/hr caring for two, but I am completely willing to work around your budget. I am also more than willing to do light cooking and cleaning and laundry and have experience with all of these things at several of my previous jobs.

    As for some more personal information, I am getting my BFA in Art Practices with focuses in printmaking and photography from PSU this year. I have my own photography business photographing maternity, children, weddings, portraiture, etc. as well. I enjoy music, making it and seeing it, creating art and videos, exploring nature, and being with friends. I moved to Portland two years ago from Florida and I absolutely love it here!

    I have a resume and several great references that I would love to email you if you are interested, including the many families I worked with in both Florida and Portland. If you are satisfied with my qualifications I would love to interview as soon as possible, by phone or in person, and see if I would be a good fit for your family, and then have you contact my references.  You can email me at shannon@bearstringhead.com if you would like to set up an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration!

                                Best,
                                Shannon

Creative and loving childcare!

August 23, 2011

Hello!

I am 25 year old college graduate and freelance photographer/musican/artist/jewelry/ maker who loves children! Most of my childcare experience comes from working for friends and family and in my hometown Mankato, Minnesota and photographing children of all ages at a local Portrait studio in Portland.  My area of work allows me to have a very open schedule with a few photo gigs on the weekends. I am very flexable and am open to working anywhere from five to forty hours per week! I love to teach children about expression through art, reading, free play, music, dance, and even goofing-off! I am reliable, always on time, and enjoy cleaning, cooking, and enjoy engaging with children. I've held various positions that relate to childcare in one way or another, including; eco friendly house cleaning, planning and leading activities at an assisted living home, as a sales associate at a toy store, and cooking in a non-profit kitchen. My rate is $10/hr with $2 for each additional child,  and references are available upon request. I currently live in NE Portland and prefer to work in Portland. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I am looking forward to hearing from you and your family!

Sincerely,

Experienced Nanny Available Part Time Mornings!

August 13, 2011

I am a 27 year old nanny and artist who recently relocated to Portland from Minneapolis. I am looking for one more family to work with who needs a MWF AM schedule- I would be available in the mornings anytime until approximately 1pm.

I have been a nanny/childcare provider full time since 2003, but have been relied on to babysit younger siblings, family members, and neighbors since the late 1990s. I have experience caring for children ages 0-13. I've worked in preschool and in-home childcare settings and was a live-in nanny for 2 years in Baltimore. I am comfortable caring for multiple children of same and varying ages including infants, toddlers, and school age children.

I am committed to providing a high level of care that promotes stability, trust, compassion, creativity, learning, respect, safety, and fun. It is important to me to maintain an environment that allows children freedom to explore the world around them in ways that nurture and encourage autonomy, self-confidence, respect for self and others, and question-asking (with thoughtful answers!)

I am very openminded and accommodating to most parenting styles and have experience with attachment parenting, cloth diapers, special dietary needs (especially food allergies and vegan/vegetarian diets), and homeschooling/unschooling/freeschooling. I also have experience caring for children with physical and other varying abilities and am trained in CPR and First Aid. It is important to me to have an open dialogue with parents and maintain existing routines and dynamics in the home.

I also have a very reliable and safe vehicle and am comfortable driving with children in the car.

My rates are semi-negotiable but generally fall around $12-15/hr (depending on number of children and other factors) and I would be happy to discuss this and provide a list of excellent references and resume to interested families.

Visting Portland: Need Temporary Childcare for 8 Year Old

June 12, 2011

Hey All!

We are visiting Portland with our 8yr old from June 20th to June 28th and would like to have sometime to explore Portland kidless.  We are looking at moving from Austin, Texas to Portland in the next few months but wanted our son to see the city before me made the decision official.  Our schedule is flexible and we have rented a condo on the waterfront/Pearl district.  We are envisioning a couple of nights for us to have dinner and hang out, while a cool-fun-responsible person (with references) hangs out at our condo with the little guy.  Pay $10 to $15 per hour DOE.

If interested, please email your resume or information about yourself and your childcare experience and 3 references to jclaustin@gmail.com
