Seeking part-time caregiver for our 10.5 month old starting Sept 5

My husband is starting the Montessori elementary training course on September 6 and I work remotely for a non-profit. We need someone to take care of our baby daughter for 12-15 hours a week starting the last week of August or first week of September. Kaia will be 10 ½ months by then. She's playful and fun-loving!

We're seeking a nurturing, compassionate, eco/health-conscious caregiver. Ideally, we’d like someone to come to our home in SE PDX (Buckman neighborhood) from 8:30 to 11:30am Mondays through Thursday for a "work cycle." From here you can go on walks, play in the community garden, or stay at home and play, read, sing, dance, do artsy crafts, etc. Hours/days are somewhat flexible, but we'd like to keep it as consistent as possible for Kaia's sake. We’re also open to childcare shares as well, whether here or somewhere else.

Familiarity with Montessori-inspired approach and/or fluency in a second language a plus. 

Please contact me at erin.hannum108@gmail.com or 509 221 9319.

Green Tulip Peace & Nature School Fall 2017 Open House!!

June 26, 2017

 ~ Portland's Only Free~Flowing School!
 
Who We Are:
The Green Tulip Peace and Nature School believes that children need independence and autonomy. We know that preschoolers are capable of making decisions that will impact how they learn and approach education in the future. We are a school that focuses less on academic achievements and more on whole self-development. We understand that nature and the outdoors are essential components to a happy, fulfilling childhood and are the foundation for self-awareness and self-esteem. We have seen first-hand the benefits of our work and have had great success in transforming how our children experience learning. The free flow environment has proven extremely effective in reducing stress and anxiety in children, especially children who fall on the Autism spectrum, struggle with social or general Anxiety, and children with ADHD. 
 
Our indoor/outdoor classrooms are carefully designed to provide a peaceful and safe learning space which allows the children freedom to explore knowing that their needs will be met. By doing so, our environment transforms to one less about classroom management and more about facilitating ideas and fostering creativity. It is a form play therapy that allows the children to learn at their own pace and work through challenges naturally, and over the years we’ve received numerous referrals by occupational therapists who saw the benefits of our work.
Our hope is to build connections, encourage awareness, and model acceptance.
 
We look forward to many happy years of working together and watching our children grow.
 
Philosophy & Approach:
Holistic education is based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to spiritual values such as compassion and peace. Holistic education aims to call forth from people an intrinsic reverence for life and a passionate love of learning. This is done, not through an academic “curriculum” that condenses the world into instructional packages, but through direct engagement with the environment. Holistic education nurtures a sense of wonder.
 
What your child will experience at the Green Tulip:
The natural world as their classroom. Our outdoor classroom is set to accommodate most weather so children can be free to move about and learn in the environment the meets their needs.The outdoors is always accessible for learning, exploring, playing, or tending to our plants and animals. 
 
An outdoor classroom full of opportunities to learn including but not limited to an outdoor art station, library, sandbox, fairy garden, chicken coop, a dig pit, garden, climbing structures and more!
 
 A positive happy environment where curiosity is encouraged and nurtured.
 
 We naturally will introduce your child to delicious and nutritious foods. We serve organic, locally grown and sometimes even fruits and vegetables we grew ourselves. We believe that CLEAN preservative-free food is an essential for wellness, and cook from scratch whenever possible. 
    
Life Skills- Cooperation, relationship building, and working through emotions.
 
 A Sense of  Community
 
Independent and Free Play
 
 A Culture of  Peace; We will model and discuss peace often and will work very hard to spread it around.
 
Our goal is to create an environment that intrigues but does not overwhelm or over-stimulate the children. We offer an environment that is safe, healthy, comforting and free from chemicals. 


For more information or to RSVP to our open house, please email us at Greentulippreschool@gmail.com or visit our website at www.greentulipschool.com
 
Thank you and may you have a day filled with peace and joy!

It is through playful exploration that real learning happens, creative thinking evolves, problem solving develops, and true connection and meaning is made.

Weekly visits from the yoga and music specialist promote further exploration, enhancing our curriculum.

The preschool hours are from 9 am to 1 pm for children 3 to 5 years of age.

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.

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 3 full time children (ages 4 months, 7 months, and a 2 and a half year old). I like to keep my group small by not going over 6 kids.

Fridays 9-2: Nanny share with 4.5 year old girl in North Portland.

February 21, 2017

We'd love to find another child to share our nanny with our daughter on Fridays, on her day off preschool, before they go to pick up our older daughter at school. A girl around her age would be ideal. Our daughter is starting kindergarten in the fall, loves art, dancing, dressing up.  Would be $9/hour for each of us.  9-2, or another period between 8:30 and 2:30 could work as well. Would be at our home in Arbor Lodge (and nearby parks etc.), or possibly at yours if nearby. Let me know if you are interested and we can see if it's a fit. Laura @ 310-736-5359

Flexible Nannies; on Demand and Highly Vetted!

February 20, 2017

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!

SAHM hoping to watch 1-2 babies in cozy/kid friendly home!

February 08, 2017

Hi Everyone!

My name is Alaina, I am a 29 year old Portland native, looking to help out a couple families in need. I have posted on here before, and I think this time I have finally figured out what will work best, and am very excited about the future as a nanny and mom! I have a 5 month old named Leo, he is such a happy sweet little guy, and being his mom has been my favorite job yet! With that said, its time for me to get back to work after these 5 months of quality time and add a couple more babies into the mix! My ideal situation is to watch one to two babies in my home.

ABOUT ME.

I have been working with children for the past ten years, from being a full time nanny, preschool teacher, and teacher assistant in the Beaverton School District. Even though all my jobs have been working with children, each job has proved different from the last. I have learned so much in each position, with the different types of teaching styles, parenting styles, ages, sibling behavior, and children with special needs, my passion for being a teacher/caregiver only grows stronger. I have 10+ years experience with multiples, every single full time nanny job I have had in the past has been with 2+ children at a time, when I worked in the daycare it was a 4-1 ratio, of ages 3mon-1 year. I love to stay active with the children I care for, from going to the zoo, children museum, nature walks, cooking parties, library, and silly dance times throughout day, I am always trying to stay energetic and engaged. I am hands on, and interactive, but also respect the Montessori teachings and think its important children know how to play and use their imaginations on their own at times also.  A little glimpse into my day as a nanny watching your child would be something like this.

MORNING: Warm welcome! Breakfast (if needed) followed by floor time (i.e..tummy time, crawling, sitting up, sharing toys, and books) I have a johnny jump up, bumbo, walkers, and play mats to keep us active. This will be a time to interact with one another, sing songs (a record player with lots of fun music, Harry Belafonte seems to be one of Leo's favorite to bounce along to!) nursery rhymes, read books, scream and yell, chat, and play with lots of energy. Working on fine motor skills, and getting lots of one on one attention.


SNACK/BOTTLE TIME/quiet story with lullabies.

NAP TIME

AFTERNOON: Daily walks to the library or to the park (5 minute walk). Being outside is very important to me, fresh air makes everyone happier! Followed by more play time, books, music, and art projects (once they are of age) to get creative with some paints and crayons!
I don't follow any schedule EXTREMELY closely, but I like to incorporate some structure, with those main activities during the day. Of course on sunny days we can picnic outside, play longer on the grass, and dance outside instead of inside! My main focus is on the children, and making sure they feel safe, loved and cared for throughout the day.
(Of course as the children get older, activities and daily routines would change to fit age and interests)

As of right now we are currently in a one bedroom. (Plans of a two bedroom are within a couple months, same location just waiting on one to open up) so in the very near future there will be more room for everyone. In the meantime I don't see our current living quarters as space issue. We have Leo's area of toys, books, changing table, rugs to play on, and a rocking chair. We have a crib and can easily set up a couple Pack N plays for nap time in the bedroom. I am located in Raleigh Hills area, just down the road from Raleigh park and the Library. Lots of great neighborhood to walk around in, and a nice big from lawn for run around play time.

I know leaving your kid during the day is extremely hard, that is why as a mom and a nanny I want to make you feel as comfortable as possible with knowing your child is in good care. We can stay in touch throughout the day by texting, and I will certainly keep track of your child's day with notes of eating, sleeping, activities, and other fun things that were don't throughout the day. With dropping your child off with me during the day you can be assured they will get one on one attention, other interaction with kids of close to the same age, and lots of play time! I think this is a fun, unique setting for a child to not feel overwhelmed in a daycare setting, but also have other kids their age to interact with and grow close with. I am not claiming to be an in-home daycare, I am a new mom who loved being a nanny and is hoping to get the opportunity to combine my two loves and create my dream job.

My rate would be $9hr per child.

I am open and willing to work with different schedules and times during the day. I hope to at the least have 25hrs a week per kid, and no more then 35hr (but again, open for discussion) Also open to nanny share.

Location is SW Portland, Raleigh Hills. Near the Fred Meyer and New Seasons off Beaverton Hillsdale.

I have a list of great references that would love to talk to you, I am CPR certified, and am willing to send my resume.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to hearing from you!
