Looking for a full time Spanish speaking nanny in SW Portland

My name is Angelique, I am married with  two boys who are 1.5 and 2.5 years old. My 1.5 year old was born premature and cannot attend daycare due to needing to be at home where is he less likely to get sick so he can get stronger and stronger every day. He currently has no health issues and is developing on track.

Both my boys have had a Spanish speaking nanny since they were born. I am looking someone who has had experience being a nanny. As you may know being a nanny is so much more than being just babysitter.  We would think of this person as part of the family and someone that we would like to have long term and be able to take on vacation with us. We live in a clean  home and have no pets. My children have no allergies. I think it would be a dream job for the right person as my boys are very good children. Please contact me if you possess these qualities and are fluent in Spanish. There is also possibiltiy of us having a third child so being open to taking care of 3 children is also important. 

We are looking for someone 7:30am to 5/5:30 pm Monday to Friday full time in SW Portland, Burlingame neighborhood.

The duties would be taking care of my two boys all day, laundry and cooking a few meals a week. Knowing how to cook is a must. We have a home phone and a car is not necessary as long as you can take public transportation or have a ride to and from. There is public transit close by. 

Please contact me at ali.arnason@gmail.com or 503-905-4968 via phone. I would love to hear from you.

Misty’s Little Ones Daycare is a licensed home-based community of children who are between the ages of 0-12 years old.  We are located in a quiet neighborhood near Mill Plain & Andresen.  We are open Monday-Friday 6 a.m.-6 p.m.

Our child care community supports an attachment, natural parenting philosophy (babywearing, cloth diapering, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, etc) as well as other similar philosophies & will be used with your children while in care.  With older children we encourage positive social interactions, becoming positive role-models for the younger children, lots of physical activity, homework help, and encouraging them to use their imaginations & be creative.

We use cloth diapers with all children enrolled and cloth training pants once they are in the toilet learning stage.  We eat non-processed, home cooked healthy meals & snacks and are able to help with special dietary accomidations including: Gluten/Dairy/Nut/Egg/Corn Free.  We play outside daily and go on walks around the neighborhood on occasion. 

We have current full-time as well as part-time openings for children 0-12 years old and serve the King & Marshall Schools here in Vancouver.  Looking for great families to add to our community who want long-term child care.

Escuela Viva
Community School
Offering a Dual Language Learning Environment
1111 SE Pine St. Portland, OR

Escuela Viva, has openings available in our Infant, Toddler and Preschool classrooms for the 2014-2015 school year.  Escuela Viva was developed with two main goals in mind.  The first is to provide an enriching environment that supports the spiritual, academic and humanistic needs of our children. The second is to support the development of both English and Spanish language skills.

The Learning Process:  Children, at Escuela Viva, are viewed as competent active learners where Teachers are but one means by which the children learn. Learning occurs in collaboration between the classroom environment, the adult teachers, parents and the children.

Escuela Viva, founded in 2004, will soon be celebrating their 10th year in business, and each day our team brings compassion and enthusiasm to the classroom.

Please read more about our educational philosophies and program at Escuela-Viva.com.  You can complete a waitlist application on the 'Enrollment' page of our website, and direct any questions towards admin@escuela-viva.com. 

PS: We have two upcoming Open Houses on March 3rd and March 31st at 5:30 p.m, hope to see you there!

Nanny Share SW

February 12, 2014

Our nanny share of two seven month olds is losing one of the families (moving out of state), so we are looking for a family with a child in a similar age range to share our wonderful nanny, Sophia. She was our older son's teacher so we've known her for years. She currently works Mon-Thurs 8:00 - 5:30 but we are flexible on both days and hours and are open to a family that needs only part-time or short term care. We host at our home in Multnomah Village but are open to using the other family's home as well. If any of these logistics seem like something that might work for your family, we'd love to tell you more about Sophia. Please email me at jjcl2014@gmail.com if interested.

At First Impressions Preschool, we provide a safe, nurturing, and loving environment for children to develop a love of learning through exploration, imagination, self-discovery, collaboration, and creativity. We have a small 6:1 child to teacher ratio and two teachers in the classroom everyday. Children are seen and valued for their amazing gifts and abilities to do meaningful work, wonder, and play. We celebrate the growth and development of the whole child while building a community of learners who practice respect for oneself, each other, and the environment. We encourage children to be active in their learning and provide them with the tools to be responsible, independent, and successful.

At First Impressions Preschool, we believe children learn best by doing! We implement a play-based, emergent curriculum while incorporating Montessori components. Our integrative approach focuses on the process of learning while fostering the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of young children. We provide rich materials and experiences that match children's individual interests and understanding. By meeting their individual needs, interests, and abilities and by celebrating their growth we help build a positive self-esteem so children can feel good about themselves and the world around them.
