Seeking part-time working mama interested in doing a childcare swap (N/NE portland)

November 27, 2017

Hello! I am a new mom of a 6 month old baby boy and I work 24 hours a week as an Occupational Therapist. I would LOVE to find another like minded mama who works part time on opposite days and would be interested in a long-term childcare swap situation. Ideally, I'd love to find a family who lives in North or Inner NE Portland, has 1 (maybe 2) young kiddos, and would be able to watch my cutie on T/F and one other weekday (the 3rd day is currently Monday but could be changed). I would watch the kids on the opposite weekdays and could do a weekend day to balance out the swap. Or we could do a nanny share for all the kids for one day a week and just swap 2 days.  I'm up for getting creative! I am very skilled at watching multiples and I would really love for my son to be cared for alongside other kids. Things we value in our family are loving and interactive care, being outdoors, music and other sensory stimulating play that is age appropriate, healthy eating, avoiding technology exposure (no screen-time) and avoiding exposure to strong fragrances/phthalates.  If this post strikes your fancy, please contact me at jessicagbarton@gmail.com. We currently have stable and loving care for our son and will only pursue a swap if we find the right family.

Experienced nanny with master’s degree available for PT or occasional childcare

September 25, 2017

Hi Portland families!

My name is Laurel and I am available for part-time, occasional and/or temporary care. I have been working full-time as a nanny for 2 and a half years and have been providing childcare for nearly 20 years to children of all ages, ranging from newborn to adolescence.

I’ve just launched my own small business providing design and organization services to individuals and families (which is why I can’t commit to another full-time position). The business is all about working together with families to create supportive, enriching environments for children at home (and finding better ways to manage all the toys, gear and paper that kids acquire). If you want to learn more about the services I offer, please check out my website at www.nurturingspacespdx.com.  

A bit more about me: I studied Family Studies and Human Development as an undergrad and Social Work (with a concentration in Children and Families) as a graduate student. I worked with at-risk children and families as a home visiting social worker before moving into the field of early childhood education where I worked as an educator in both a toddler and mixed age preschool classroom.

I believe that children learn through relationships, play and the ability to interact with a variety of materials and environments. I believe in the power of predictable routines, honest and clear communication, and firm and consistent boundaries. I offer children authentic choices and invite their active participation in the day’s routine whenever possible. I value and welcome the full range of children’s feelings while acknowledging that not all behaviors are acceptable. Janet Lansbury is my guru for all child care related questions (she’s got a great website with lots of helpful info).

I'm CPR/First Aid certified, have a driver's license, a clean driving record and a safe car.

I like to spend my free time cooking, exploring the incredible wild spaces of the Pacific Northwest, practicing yoga, scouring secondhand stores and watching adventure films.

I'm reliable, experienced and I feel confident that I can provide respectful, responsive care for your child(ren). Please let me know if you have any questions. I have plentiful, glowing references, which I would love to share with you if you’re interested. I look forward to hearing from you! 

Warmly,

Laurel
