Join me in creating a playschool for 2-3 year olds!

March 06, 2017

Cyndi Perczek is a creative play specialist who leads co-op preschools for 2-4 year olds. For the past 11 years, she's provided out-of-the box education that allows her and other families the freedom to create early childhood experiences that are both intimate and adventurous. With a BA in theatre and an MS in education, she combines the two to make stories and make- believe the driving force of her curriculum. Interactive storytelling keeps the class on their feet by acting every moment with their voice and body. Cyndi has worked with organizations like Story Pirates, Music Together, Brooklyn Beanstalk, and Spellbound Theatre as a teaching artist and has worked at Montessori schools, daycares, and mommy and me classes as a Spanish teacher. During the summers she leads a detective camp for 5-8 year olds that solve mysteries by finding hidden clues and letters in the outdoors. She is moving to Portland in July and her Brooklyn co-op community is happy to give recommendations and tell you about their experiences with Cyndi. 
 
If you're interested in creating a cooperative playschool with me for the 2017-2018 school year please email me at cyndi.perczek@gmail.com. Thank you! 20160926_105421

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!

Peace Tree School, a community Montessori school, is enrolling children 3 months to 5 years!

February 07, 2017

IMG_0682
 We are a Montessori community with locations in NE & N Portland. Our environments are beautifully prepared for children 3 months to 5 years. We believe that quality childcare and early education is a collaboration between caregiver, family, child and classroom. The children at Peace Tree School benefit from trained and experienced caregivers, a partnership with families and a environment that fosters discovery and exploration. Our individualized and nurturing approach to early education is supported by the Montessori method and Magda Gerber's concept of educaring, also referred to as Resources for Infant Educareres or RIE. At Peace Tree, children are given the opportunity to thrive at their own pace and in their own way. Environments are designed to reflect the child's home environment with ample space for freedom of movement and many opportunities for children to gain the skills they need to be independent. 

What we provide: (included in tuition)

  • Home cooked snacks & lunch.
  • Weekly yoga lessons from Honey Heart Yoga.
  • Weekly Art Curriculum catered to each group's development. 
  • Daily music exploration and study as well as live music performances.

Creative, caring nanny looking for Full/Part time Position!

January 02, 2017

Hello and Happy New Year!

My name is Alaina, I am a 29 year old Portland native looking for my next family to Nanny for! My ideal position would be three 10-12 hour days, doesn't matter what days of the week, if the days switch off each week, or if they are consecutive week days off together. I am just hoping to find something around 30-35 hours per week, also open to a nanny share situation. I am a new mom to a 4 month old boy, named Leo. I absolutely love being a mom, he's such a sweet little guy and has been nothing but a joy in our life. My mother has graciously offered to watch Leo 2 days a week, but I would love to be able to bring him one day a week to work. This can be discussed in greater detail of course. I know this may not sound ideal to some families, but I can assure you it would have no negative effect on me being a nanny to your family. I would give equal attention to each child, and I love the thought of my son growing up with other children, and forming lasting friendships. I started my last nanny job in January 2016, which I was with full time until September when I went on maternity leave. The plan was to return to work at the start of January 2017 and bring Leo with me, but things changed with the families work schedule and they can no longer guarantee a set amount of hours anymore, since the mom will be home more often, so here I am!
I live in SW Portland in the Raleigh Hills area, so keeping it within a 20-30 min drive at most would be helpful (especially with this growing Portland traffic!)
A little about me, my work history, and teaching style.

I have grown up in the Portland metro area my whole life, I love Oregon and all if has to offer. Like most Oregonians, I love the lifestyle we are able to have by living here, beautiful day hikes, weekend trips to the Oregon Coast, camping, and trying a new awesome restaurant each weekend. Eating locally and as healthy as possible is very important for me. Which is why staying active, and eating fresh is definitely incorporated as much as possible when I am watching children. I like to have the kids help me cook, get them involved and show them what its like to eat from the garden, daily walks, and exploring all nature has to offer. Rain or shine, I need to go outside everyday! I very much believe a child's imagination is the most important thing to exercise and discover, and no better place to do that then the great outdoors. I grew up in a large family, with my parents, two older sisters, and a younger brother. I now have 4 nieces, and the family keeps growing. I feel very lucky to have them all live close by so Leo can grow up surrounded by his grandparents and cousins.

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.

Being a Nanny has always been my favorite job of them all. The bond and relationships you form are extremely rewarding and irreplaceable. I have nannied children ranging from 4MO-14years old. As a parent I can only imagine how hard it is to leave your children everyday for work, that’s why as a nanny I make sure the children know they are loved and cared for everyday, I am there for any questions and concerns they have, and am there to teach them and help them grow. I love to stay positive and active. From working in school environments in the past I have taken to implementing some things into my nanny life. Making sure each day has time for reading, crafts, down time, dance/play, and outdoor learning/activities. I know every family is different, some are more structured and scheduled, others may not follow a schedule, with that said I am open to whatever makes the family feel most at ease and comfortable.

As I search for the next family to work with, I am hoping to find something long-term, at least a year+ commitment would be ideal. I want to treat my next job as much as a career as possible, 1 week paid vacation/holiday pay, and a guaranteed amount of hours each pay period. I have a weekly sheet I fill out for the families, which includes activities done throughout the day, food intake, potty/nap schedule, miles driven, expenses used, and hours for the day. It really helps the parents and I keep track in an organized way and it’s seemed to work out really well.

I can imagine trying to find the right Nanny for your family to be a very hard process. I don't blame the family for wanting to maybe have a lengthy hiring process, or wanting to do a trial run to see if you are a right fit before hiring, and to me that makes so much sense. You can't be too sure when you know this person is going to be watching your children. So with that said, I am available for contact through e-mail or phone. If you're interested I can send my resume, which gives in greater detail my childcare experience, I also have great references that are more then willing to chat with you, and we can chat on the phone before meeting to see if we would be a good fit for each other!

I have a 2002 Subaru Outback, which is a very safe and reliable car. I have had my license since I was 16, with an amazing driving record. I recently renewed my First Aid/CPR training and am enrolled in the Criminal Background Check. I am comfortable with pets, and don't mind walking the dog. I am comfortable with meal prep, light housekeeping, and running errands. I don't smoke.

In my last few positions I was getting paid $16 hourly for two children. I am willing to go down to $15 for one child. If its a Nanny share situation I would charge $9 an hour per family.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, I am a very caring, reliable, patient, and open minded person, I look at being a Nanny as a career, and not just a job to have until I find something better. I am very excited to find the next family to work with. Thanks again, and I hope to hear from you!

Part-Time Nanny Needed in SE Portland

October 24, 2016

Hello! We're looking for a caring, dependable, education/play-oriented part-time nanny for roughly 25 hours a week. Our two children are 7 and 4, and love arts and crafts, music, books, and being outside.

The schedule is M/W/F after school, and all day Tues/Thurs. The location for care switches weekly between our 2 houses, dad's in South Tabor and mom's in Woodstock. Some very light housekeeping would be helpful--mainly just cleaning up after craft time, etc., and some meal prep (really just snacks and lunches).

We'd love to know a little bit about you, your child care philosophy and methods, and how you see yourself a great fit for joining our family. Compensation is negotiable, but hoping to land around local average pay. Please email Brian at bk@fatpause.com if interested.

5-Star Rated Concordia Montessori has One Rare Preschool Opening

September 29, 2016

Concordia Montessori is a small, private in-home Montessori community providing an affordable, quality, full-day educational environment in our NE Portland neighborhood.  Our primary program serves children aged 2.5 - 6 years old who are ready to transition out of their toddler programs and who are using the toilet independently.  This classroom, established in 2010, is led by an AMS credentialed Montessori lead guide who has taught for more than 17 years and a highly experienced full-time assistant. 

We are state-certified and hold a 5-star quality rating from the State of Oregon.  Our large outdoor space allows children to be outside each day - running, climbing, and exploring and caring for our large organic food garden and small chicken flock.  Inside, our authentic Montessori manipulatives and lessons entice exploration and experimentation in language, science, culture, art, music, physical movement, and math.  Please visit our website at www.concordiamontessori.com for more details about our program and how to apply for this last minute availability for the 2016-17 school year.
