Experienced, warm and adventurous Nanny seeking long-term family

March 25, 2017

Hello Parents and Families!

I am an experienced, warm, adventurous and conscientious nanny and mother seeking a family for an extended mutual commitment. Interested in a single-child household of infant/toddler/preschool age on Portland's west side or near surrounding suburbs. Flexibility on scheduling, but ideally seeking 20-36 hours per week, within a 2-4 day period, during Monday-Friday.

I have worked as a childcare provider for the last 22 years with the last 8 as a private caregiver and in classroom settings. I am enthusiastic and well informed about early child hood development. I greatly enjoy working with families to create consistent, safe and enriching environments where children thrive. I am passionate and energized about engaging with neighborhood assets like parks programming, play spaces, natural areas and libraries during our weekly routines.  I love creating games, crafts and other activities to keep little minds busy during inclement weather. I even own a big colorful parachute!

I authentically communicate with children, speaking to them with confidence and respect while creating clear boundaries in a safe and loving way. I treat each individual as their own special and unique self, to foster trust and cultivate emotional life skills through consistency and emotional acknowledgment.

My husband and I welcomed our sweet, smart little girl in August of 2013 and she joins me on my workday; it has been a joyful and rewarding experience for our family as well as the families we care for. We are looking to work with a family who is excited about the co-developmental benefits of a built-in buddy and the ability to socialize their child in a small and caring environment. We have our own transportation, an extra car seat and a carrier hiking pack for our next adventure pal!

I would love to share more about my childcare philosophies, our extensive work history and the positive life-long relationships we have formed through our nanny relationships. I look forward to learning more about your family and what you are looking for in a caregiver!

Flexible Nannies; on Demand and Highly Vetted!

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!

Seeking nanny or nanny share for 6 month old

January 07, 2017

Hi there,

we are looking for a nanny or nanny share beginning mid-February for our daughter Artemis, who is going to be 6 months old by then. We live in NW Portland and we are open to many options. Ideally, we are looking for a family with a full time nanny that they would like to add an infant to a few days a week, or a nanny with some flexibility. We would like to start with 3 days a week and then switch to full time. We are pretty flexible location wise as it is not more than 20 min drive, alternatively we could host at our place.

Looking fwd to hearing from you.

Best,

Christina

Pls contact us @ e-mail: chatzi@ohsu.edu or phone: 858-337-3506

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!

Portland Nanny Looking for FT (Nanny share/my home/your home)

December 01, 2016

Hello! My name is Alaina and I am 28-year-old Portland native, who's hoping to find a 30-35 hour a week nanny position starting in January. I am available M-F, and open to many options! Nanny share, my home, your home, switching off throughout the week. Whatever is easiest for the family can be discussed. 

 I am a new mom to a soon to be 12 week little boy named Leo. He is the sweetest, most even tempered, curious, happy baby and I feel very lucky to be his mom. 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.  I am going to miss them, they were a great family and we all got along really well. With that said, I am looking forward to my next nanny adventure! 

I have a couple options I am open to, and would be equally thrilled to be apart of. 

 The first being a nanny share with 2 babies at someone's house. Since I would be bringing Leo with me, I think it would be awesome to have other babies close to his age or even up to 1 year old. I've had friends in this scenario and they loved it and said it worked or great! Plus, Leo doesn't have many friends yet and I'm almost certain he would love some. :) 

The second being dropping off 1-2 babies with me. I live in SW Portland, although my place is very cute and perfect for my little family of 3 at the moment, it would sadly be too small to entertain multiple babies, so my parents has graciously offered their home to me. My parents live in Tigard, in the Morning Hill neighborhood. Very close to Summer Lake Park, and the new Progress Ridge developments. They have 5 grandchildren who love visiting because of their warm environment and lots of toys! There would be a designated play-room with cribs, age appropriate toys, and anything else needed for the babies. A clean kitchen for eating and snack time, and an awesome backyard with a new large deck for endless outdoor activities! 

For both of these scenarios I would charge $9.00 per child and would need to be guaranteed no less then 27-28 hours per week and not exceeding 35-38 hours. If only one child, pay would need to be increased but for the sake of each family and payment costs, I am really hoping for two children to cut costs for everyone! 

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.

Full Time Nanny Available September

August 16, 2016

Tiffany has been a nanny for our family for over four years now and our youngest is now moving on to preschool and I am committed to helping this truly remarkable young woman find another family to work for.    

About Tiffany:  Tiff
Tiffany is a professionally trained nanny, having graduated from NW Nannies Institute in Portland, with ten years experience with infants, toddlers, multiples, and nanny shares.  She is infant & child first aid and CPR certified.  Being a nanny is not just an after-college job, it is her profession.  

 She is endlessly patient and I've never once seen her frustrated or flustered.   She is full of love and connects incredibly well with children, actively playing with them, making trips to the park, and singing songs and playing games.  She is professional and responsible.  

I can't recommend her highly enough.  

Pay: I'm also committed to helping Tiffany find a job that pays her a living wage since this is her profession and she needs to be able to pay for her own health insurance, pay taxes, etc. Her rate per hour for a full time, 50 hour week is $22 per hour.    She is really flexible in helping families afford that.  She will care for multiple children at that rate--up to 2 infants and 4 toddlers or adding in an older child after school (all of which she has done while in our employment and I can attest to the fact that she is brilliant at it) AND, she can do what she did for our family which is work 3 days for one group of families and 2 days for another, so please don't hesitate to reach out if you are interested in part-time OR full-time; I know she'll try to make it work.   And I will happily train you on how to withhold taxes, etc so you don't have to stress about that!

You can contact me at amandamortlock [@] gmail.com to learn more or get in touch with Tiffany.  Tiffany has a full website with reviews from families she's worked with at www.tiffanybreunig.com.

Looking For Family To Share Amazing Nanny In Overlook/N/NE Pdx

June 28, 2016

Hi!  We have an incredible bilingual nanny, Kelly, who we would like to share with one or 2 other families (max 2 more little ones).  She has been with our 22 month old daughter since she was only 8 weeks old and is very trustworthy, speaks only in Spanish to her, and fills every day with fun activities.  Kelly also seems to have magical powers when it comes to getting little ones down for their naps.

We would ideally like to find one or 2 more little ones around the same age as our girl and families who wouldn't mind dropping their littles off at our house in Overlook.  The days/hours we use Kelly currently are M, Tu 9:15-6:30, W 9:15-5:30, F 9:15-6:30 and we're open to sharing a portion of that or all of those hours if it happens to work with your schedule.  For the shared hours each family pays $13 per hour and if you need Kelly for any alone hours it's $15.

Email me, andreaneal99@yahoo.com, or call, 714-883-5792, if you think this could be a good fit or have any questions.

Thanks,

Andrea

Seeking Part-Time Nanny For 2 Kids (newborn and 2 yrs) SW Portland. Start date October/November

June 23, 2016

Hello Urban Mamas! We are a loving family of two working parents, a 2 year old daughter and baby boy due in early August. Due to somewhat irregular upcoming work schedule changes, we are seeking part time nanny/babysitter coverage at our home for both children most likely 7 AM-6PM Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday every other month, to begin in late October/early November. Additionally, we would likely want to commit to at least one additional day on the months in between in order to establish some schedule consistency for us both. We live in a large private home in the Hillsdale neighborhood of SW Portland, close to many parks, great walking and hiking trails and on a quiet, friendly residential street.

We are a warm family with a very friendly and loving Newfoundland dog and cat. We have a fenced in backyard, children's play room, nursery and toddler room, all stocked with plenty of toys and books. We'd be interested in having our children exposed to the outdoors, arts and crafts, reading books, listening to music, dancing and most of all doing so with a friendly, fun, caring and thoughtful nanny/babysitter.

Please contact Adam via email at abranf@gmail.com or phone at 617.447.3512 if you're interested or wish to ask any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!

Part time Nanny Needed ASAP in Cedar Hills

March 16, 2016

Hi there! We are a Fun-loving family of three in Beaverton/Cedar Hills. Dad is in business banking and Mom is an advanced esthetician. We are an easygoing family that loves to play, have adventures outside, and enjoy a healthy dose of snuggles on the couch. Our son is very sweet and energetic. He has a great imagination which comes in handy since he loves to play pretend. He also loves to be active/explore outside, rain or shine! He enjoys art projects, getting funky to some fresh beats and making new friends at the park. We don't have our parents in town so we are looking for a care provider who can fill that void and become like family (it truly does take a village)!

Need reliable transportation to pick up from daycare and other activities. Seeking someone with enough experience with children to understand right off the bat how to react and positively contribute to all of their phases and development. Also seeking someone with good communication skills (for mom and dad) and who can be a part of our family long term

Experienced nanny and infant son looking for a family

February 10, 2016

Experienced nanny looking for part time work.

There is joy to be found in sunshine and joy to be found in the rain. Lessons in love to be found in the people we meet and for the environment we share. Kids are such beautiful sponges anxious to understand and become a part of the world around them. It is an honor to guide children, helping them to feel confident and capable in what can sometimes be an overwhelming and scary place.

I have had the privilege of helping to raise 3 boys for the last 11 years along side a self-employed single mother doing the the hardest job imaginable. Having been involved in every facet of parenting and household management I have the experience to step right into any role. My ability to smoothly adapt helps ease transitions in care as every family has their own style of guidance and ideals for living in this world we share.

After having my own son last November I have decided to cut my hours back a bit and bring him along with me on my nanny adventures. If you would like to see if we would work well as a team I’d love to send you my resume and references along with setting up a time to chat.

PT Nanny needed close-in NE this fall

August 31, 2015

We are looking for someone to spend weekday mornings with our 5-month old twin girls from September 21st onward. This will be four to five hours per day with the possibility for some evening and weekend hours at times, too.

Experience and qualifications are important but not the only things we'll consider, and we'd love to talk to people of varied backgrounds about their childcare approaches. The who and the how are as important as how seasoned or how credentialed you are!

We're located conveniently near the NE 60th Ave. MAX stop, the 19, 52 and 20 buses, and the NE 58th Ave. exit off I-84 East.

Contact apersans@gmail.com or call either (646)675-5687 or (646)675-5694.

Seeking early evening weekday nanny in NE

August 10, 2015

We would like help at home with our 14-month-old daughter in the early weekday evenings, roughly 5:30 to 6:30 or 7:00pm. Usually, we'll both be home as well, but one of us has a daily 6-6:30 online assignment, which is why we need an extra set of hands.

What we need: Reliability, since we need this person every day M-F. Fun, because you're working with a toddler. Flexibility, because we'd love you to help out on other occasions if you're able. Ideally, we'd like you to be able to babysit on occasion and/or help out during the day when daycare is closed - such as the last week of August - and perhaps stay a bit later once a month or so when one of us travels for work. Oh, you should also be pet-friendly, as we have two dogs and two cats. (The cats are always in the laundry room but the dogs are usually upstairs with us.) We're open to a student, grandparent, or experienced nanny.

What you'll do: The position will help with general toddler wrangling and feeding of dinner; kitchen clean-up, mainly of toddler bottles/snack containers that get washed daily, wiping counters, sweeping/mopping; and helping prep toddler lunch for daycare the following day. The number one priority is the toddler, but since both of us will normally be around, you may spend a little more time on KP while one of us deals with daughter some nights.

About us: We're new to Portland and live in Beaumont-Wilshire. Both of us work from home, one as an engineer and the other as a communications consultant. We like to bike and drink beer, though we have little time for either these days. We're pretty easygoing people who moved here to spend more time outdoors and with each other as a family. Our daughter is active and happy, loves to be outside, but can also be a handful at mealtime and bedtime. Read: she is a toddler. :)

Please email us at household@lozano-buhl.com with a little bit about yourself along with resume and references if available, and your hourly rate.

Thursday Nanny Needed in SE Tabor

August 02, 2015

Hello Lovely Portland Nannies,

My partner and I are looking for a loving nanny/ sitter for our 2.5-year-old for Thursday evenings starting in September, from 6pm - 9:30pm. We both sing in a choir that has rehearsals on this evening, and need a nanny to give our daughter dinner, play for a bit, and put her to bed around 8pm. Occasionally, we may stay later to get drinks with the group, in which case, we would be home by 11:30pm. 

During December and March, there will be extra rehearsals in preparation for Christmas and Easter concerts. We would let you know the schedule far ahead of time, giving you ample time to see if you are available to cover these events. 

Our little one is a wonderful child - very mellow, great sense of humor, and loves to paint, draw, kick her soccer ball, and take care of her babies. She is very close to being potty trained and usually tells us when she has to go. 

We are looking for someone who loves children and would enjoy a regular gig with a sweetheart of a kiddo. 

We will be paying $8 per hour. If interested, please email me at chelseaterrisrose@hotmail.com

Creative, experienced, and joyful Nanny available in SE

April 06, 2015

My name is Katy and I am a 28 year old, college educated, creative and FUN nanny living in the Mt. Scott/Arleta neighborhood of SE. One of the mothers I  worked for is reducing her work schedule to spend more time with her  awesome kiddos, so I am searching for another lovely family to work for.  
 
I have great references! All will attest to my honest, strong work ethic, excellent childcare skills and easygoing, warm personality. I have over 10 years of childcare, teaching, and tutoring experience.  3+ years of gymnastics and theater teaching experience has made movement and creativity the crux of the childcare I provide! I speak Spanish very proficiently and would be more than happy to incorporate the Spanish language into my care, as well. Children in my charge with enjoy nature walks, creative outdoor play, games and songs. In my spare time, I am studying herbalism. I intern 4 hours a week at the Hawthorne Herb Shoppe. I love sharing my love for plants with children. We always stop and smell the roses!
 
I have the most experience caring for and teaching toddlers. I would prefer to work with one or two toddlers, but am open to any age if it's the right fit :) I love caring for children of all ages. A typical day with me and a toddler would look like Story time at the library, followed by adventures at the playground, singing improvised songs about plants and animals, movement based and creative games, and consistent nap schedule. I am also experienced with potty training toddlers and am very attentive, always positive and encouraging. I am very invested in supporting and fostering children's natural creativity, curiosity and brilliance! 
 
I am very happy to work for all varieties of families and as a queer person, I welcome and celebrate LGBTQ families. I would love to work for a family that celebrates diversity, culture and natural healthy living.
 
I would prefer to work for a family relatively close to my neighborhood, as I love to ride my bike to work! I have a drivers license, vehicle, and squeaky clean driving record.  I'd  prefer to drive my employer's vehicle if driving is part of my work responsibilities.  I'd be more than happy to hitch a trailer on my bicycle! I'm an excellent, highly experienced and safe city cyclist. That is more my style of transportation :)  
 
I am ideally looking to work 3-4 full weekdays/week, but am open to other options for the right fit. I work on a sliding scale depending on the number of children and responsibilities of the position.  Feel free to contact me about rates and other details. I hope to get the opportunity to meet you and your family soon! Thank you so much for taking the time to read my posting :)

Nanny Sought for part-time share in SE, 12:30-5:30 Tues-Fri starting ASAP

January 12, 2015

Hello! We have a wonderful nanny share arrangement set up in Woodstock in SE Portland. Our current nanny has had to make an emergency move back to the Bay Area, so we are seeking a creative, energetic, attentive caregiver to step into her very capable shoes as soon as possible.

The hours are 12:30-5:30 Tuesdays through Fridays (total 20 hours/week). You'll care for two 3-6 year olds during those times-- sometimes two families participate with one preschooler each, and sometimes it's just our family with two siblings (a preschooler and a kindergartner). Our home serves as the base but there are lots of fun activities in the area (library, park etc).  

If this schedule works for you and this sounds like a good match, please introduce yourself via email to Ruth at rjwikler@gmail.com. Thanks!

Nanny Needed For Nanny Share - NW Portland

We are looking for a nanny for a nanny share opportunity 3-4 days a week starting in March. Care would be for a 3 month old boy and a 5 month old girl at the time of start. The hours needed would most likely be 7:30-5:30/6 pm TU WED, and TH, and perhaps an occasional Monday or Friday. Both families live nearby in NW Portland.  Pay rate would be $16 per hour. 

We are seeking an individual who has experience caring for infants, who is loving, and energetic. A background in early childhood education/development is a bonus! We would like someone who will be present and engaged (playing, dancing, singing, outside play etc.) with limited TV time.  We prefer someone who is CPR certified.
