My name is Ashley. I am 26 years old and recently graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington in Texas back in December. I am looking for a full-time position, at least 35 hours a week, or even occasional babysitting- I am available anytime! While I was in school, I was a nanny for three children (ages 2-5) and was an occasional babysitter for a 4 & 10 year old. I have excellent references that I can provide for you and I have been babysitting on and off since I was 14. I love kids! I'm really big into reading (I absolutely love Fancy Nancy, Harry Potter and Eloise!), making music, dancing, eating healthy snacks, science experiments, going to parks, arts and crafts, adventure, imagination, silliness and sidewalk chalk. I like to create games and scavenger hunts. I am open to doing cleaning and meal preparation, and any other household chores that need to be done. I rely on public transportation so I will need a family close to the MAX or buslines. Please email me: where you found my posting, a little bit about your family, your rate, and your requirements at email@example.com if you would like to to meet to see if your family and I are a good match!

OPEN HOUSE Thursday January 31st, 6:00-8:00 pm
Montessori Children's House offers both Toddler and Primary Montessori programs. We are located in a dynamic and diverse new Portland neighborhood, the South Waterfront, adjacent to a lovely park and the Willamette River Greenway.
'We toured a total of six schools before we found the right one for our daughter. We even enrolled her in another one prior to Montessori Children's House only to pull her out because we were disappointed in our experience there. I wish that we had discovered this school sooner! It would have saved us a lot of stress.'
'The space itself is gorgeous, all new, beautiful learning areas, just what you would imagine a top notch Montessori school to look like...The location on South Waterfront is very easy to get to and from, parking is right in front of the main door and the teachers will even greet the kids at your car. We highly recommend Montessori Children’s House!'

Hi! My name is Meg, I am a 24-year-old graduate student at PSU working on a double masters in Education and Counseling. I have a BA in education, and many years experience working with children and youth of all ages! I have worked for several elementary schools, summer camps, and youth outreach programs. My past experiences include working as a substitute kindergarten and pre-school teacher, running a before-an-after school program, teaching environmental education, and being a youth advocate at domestic violence shelter.
In particular, I am passionate about the arts and outdoor education. I love music, dancing, exploring, crafting, cooking, playing outside, making stuff. I have worked as a professional house keeper and would be happy to take on some cleaning and cooking tasks as well. I have current CPR/First Aid certifications, a clean driving record, and a smooth running, kid-friendly mini van.
I am currently taking some time off from school, and work staff relief for a teen crisis intervention program. Being that I work on-call, I have a very open, flexible schedule. Early mornings, late nights, and weekends are all great for me.I am looking for a regular nanny position or some date-night babysitting gigs- I would love to meet families for either.
Please contact me for a resume, references, and more information!
