ChildRoots has Preschool Availability - Now and for Fall!

April 26, 2017

Julyparent

At ChildRoots, we believe that children are capable and strong. They deserve beautiful spaces, high-quality materials, and curriculum that is built upon their interests. They deserve to be listened to and respected — their ideas are powerful. They deserve organic, whole foods; and spaces to run, jump, skip, and yell. They deserve a community that nurtures social and emotional intelligence and introduces letters and numbers. They deserve teachers that enliven their natural curiosity and foster a lifelong love of learning. We’re inspired by busy brains, running feet, and muddy puddles to stomp in. We ask questions, and respect each child’s innate curiosity. We look closer.

Our preschool program is influenced by the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. We believe that children are powerful, independent, and capable; and our program is designed to nurture these traits to build empowered, confident thinkers, dreamers, and tinkerers.

  • We’re committed to building community. Multiple school-wide and class events throughout the year bring us together for celebration, conversation, and shared experiences.
  • Our daily atelier program offers children the chance to explore a variety of topics in small groups. See a sample atelier term schedule below.
  • On-site art studio offers each child the chance to experiment with a variety of different media, including sculpture, collage, printmaking, and textiles.

ATELIER SCHEDULE: Motion

Week 1: Woodshop
Week 2: Horticulture
Week 3: Movement
Week 4: Animation
Week 5: Locomotives
Week 6: Chemistry
Week 7: Advanced Filmmaking
Week 8: Water Science

ChildRoots has three locations in the heart of Portland, and we currently have just a few openings for toddlers and preschoolers at our Northwest location. Interested in learning more? Check out our website, give our enrollment office a call at (503) 235-1151, or shoot us an email. We can't wait to get in touch.

New Italian Kindergarten Offers One-of-a-Kind Program in Portland Metro

April 12, 2017

123456 prek

Throughout Portland, kindergarten programs abound.  However, there is none quite like the new Scuola Italiana Kindergarten program which is slated to open next fall.  This unique program offers both Italian and English language instruction by fusing Italian language and culture together with the necessary English language kindergarten skills to create well rounded, world citizens equipped to enter any first-grade classroom.

Did you know that providing foreign language opportunities to kids is truly a gift that keeps on giving?  There are plenty of studies that illustrate the truly amazing and lifelong benefits associated with learning a foreign language.  Better problem solving skills, higher test scores, greater overall academic success are just a few of those advantages.  Now who doesn’t want that for their child?!  Additionally, children im
mersed in second language at an early age have the very real possibility of becoming native-fluent in that language.

It is not necessary to have Italian language experience yourself to enroll your child in kindergarten.  Our teachers understand that most parents will not know Italian, and they are prepared to share tried and true tips, fun and educational resources, and other helpful information that empowers you support your child’s progress.  For parents who might wish to learn the language simultaneously, we offer a comprehensive adult program

If your child is not yet ready for kindergarten, Scuola Italiana has several other wonderful opportunities available for you and your child.  We can begin by sharing Italian language with you and your child as early as 18 months through our free Mommy and Me Playgroup.  Playgroup is designed for toddlers aged 18 – 42 months old.  We also have an excellent Reggio Emilia inspired preschool program and after school and weekend classes too.   Summer culture camps are open between June and August when regular classes are not in session.

If you’d like to learn more about our new, one-of-a-kind kindergarten program or any of the other children’s classes, please join Scuola Italiana teachers and staff for an open house on Saturday, April 29th from noon to 2:00 pm.  The open house is at 1542 NW 14th AVE, Portland, OR 97209 (14th & Quimby).

Can’t make our open house?  Please email questions or arrange a visit at info@scuola.us.

Since 2006, Scuola Italiana has operated with a mission to promote the Italian language and culture to children and adults in a student-centered environment; nurturing responsible, global citizens by providing cross-cultural understanding and fostering a deep appreciation for world civilizations that intersect with the Italian culture.

Childcare Openings

March 05, 2017

Hi all! My name is Charlene Adams and I'm an in home childcare provider in North Portland. I'm located between Morgan St and Buffalo St. I've been doing childcare out of my home for about 8 years now, but before this, I was a childcare teacher at Legacy Emanuel's Childcare center. I worked there for a little over 21 years, but after they closed down due to lack of funding, I was forced to find another job. Inhome childcare has been a perfect fit! I'm a licensed childcare provider and I have my food handler's card, my recognizing child abuse certification, CPR, first aid, and an approved background check. In my care, we have a set schedule which consists of sign language lessons, learning their ABC's and numbers, story time, and a daily walk (if the weather is nice). Meals are provided. My hours are 7:30 am - 5:30 pm Monday -Friday. Currently, I have 3 full time children (ages 4 months, 7 months, and a 2 and a half year old). I like to keep my group small by not going over 6 kids. I have 3 openings for ages 2 and up. If you'd like more information, you can shoot me an email at adamscharlene1965@yahoo.com OR you can give me a call at (503) 891-6838. Thanks! I hope to hear from you!

Childcare Openings

February 21, 2017

Hi all! My name is Charlene Adams and I'm an in home childcare provider in North Portland. I'm located between Morgan St and Buffalo St. I've been doing childcare out of my home for about 8 years now, but before this, I was a childcare teacher at Legacy Emanuel's Childcare center. I worked there for a little over 21 years, but after they closed down due to lack of funding, I was forced to find another job. Inhome childcare has been a perfect fit! I'm a licensed childcare provider and I have my food handler's card, my recognizing child abuse certification, CPR, first aid, and an approved background check. In my care, we have a set schedule which consists of sign language lessons, learning their ABC's and numbers, story time, and a daily walk (if the weather is nice). Meals are provided. My hours are 7:30 am - 5:30 pm Monday -Friday. Currently, I have 4 full time children (ages 4 months, 7 months, 1 year old, and a 2 and a half year old). I like to keep my group small by not going over 6 kids. I have 2 openings for ages 2 and up. If you'd like more information, you can shoot me an email at adamscharlene1965@yahoo.com OR you can give me a call at (503) 891-6838. Thanks! I hope to hear from you!

At ChildRoots, we believe that children are capable and strong. They deserve beautiful spaces, high-quality materials, and curriculum that is built upon their interests. They deserve to be listened to and respected — their ideas are powerful. They deserve organic, whole foods; and spaces to run, jump, skip, and yell. They deserve a community that nurtures social and emotional intelligence and introduces letters and numbers. They deserve teachers that enliven their natural curiosity and foster a lifelong love of learning.

ChildRoots has three locations in the heart of Portland, and we currently have just a few openings for wobblers, toddlers, and preschoolers at our Northwest location.

SAHM hoping to watch 1-2 babies in cozy/kid friendly home!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Alaina, I am a 29 year old Portland native, looking to help out a couple families in need. I have posted on here before, and I think this time I have finally figured out what will work best, and am very excited about the future as a nanny and mom! I have a 5 month old named Leo, he is such a happy sweet little guy, and being his mom has been my favorite job yet! With that said, its time for me to get back to work after these 5 months of quality time and add a couple more babies into the mix! My ideal situation is to watch one to two babies in my home.

ABOUT ME.

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. I have 10+ years experience with multiples, every single full time nanny job I have had in the past has been with 2+ children at a time, when I worked in the daycare it was a 4-1 ratio, of ages 3mon-1 year. I love to stay active with the children I care for, from going to the zoo, children museum, nature walks, cooking parties, library, and silly dance times throughout day, I am always trying to stay energetic and engaged. I am hands on, and interactive, but also respect the Montessori teachings and think its important children know how to play and use their imaginations on their own at times also.  A little glimpse into my day as a nanny watching your child would be something like this.

MORNING: Warm welcome! Breakfast (if needed) followed by floor time (i.e..tummy time, crawling, sitting up, sharing toys, and books) I have a johnny jump up, bumbo, walkers, and play mats to keep us active. This will be a time to interact with one another, sing songs (a record player with lots of fun music, Harry Belafonte seems to be one of Leo's favorite to bounce along to!) nursery rhymes, read books, scream and yell, chat, and play with lots of energy. Working on fine motor skills, and getting lots of one on one attention.


SNACK/BOTTLE TIME/quiet story with lullabies.

NAP TIME

AFTERNOON: Daily walks to the library or to the park (5 minute walk). Being outside is very important to me, fresh air makes everyone happier! Followed by more play time, books, music, and art projects (once they are of age) to get creative with some paints and crayons!
I don't follow any schedule EXTREMELY closely, but I like to incorporate some structure, with those main activities during the day. Of course on sunny days we can picnic outside, play longer on the grass, and dance outside instead of inside! My main focus is on the children, and making sure they feel safe, loved and cared for throughout the day.
(Of course as the children get older, activities and daily routines would change to fit age and interests)

As of right now we are currently in a one bedroom. (Plans of a two bedroom are within a couple months, same location just waiting on one to open up) so in the very near future there will be more room for everyone. In the meantime I don't see our current living quarters as space issue. We have Leo's area of toys, books, changing table, rugs to play on, and a rocking chair. We have a crib and can easily set up a couple Pack N plays for nap time in the bedroom. I am located in Raleigh Hills area, just down the road from Raleigh park and the Library. Lots of great neighborhood to walk around in, and a nice big from lawn for run around play time.

I know leaving your kid during the day is extremely hard, that is why as a mom and a nanny I want to make you feel as comfortable as possible with knowing your child is in good care. We can stay in touch throughout the day by texting, and I will certainly keep track of your child's day with notes of eating, sleeping, activities, and other fun things that were don't throughout the day. With dropping your child off with me during the day you can be assured they will get one on one attention, other interaction with kids of close to the same age, and lots of play time! I think this is a fun, unique setting for a child to not feel overwhelmed in a daycare setting, but also have other kids their age to interact with and grow close with. I am not claiming to be an in-home daycare, I am a new mom who loved being a nanny and is hoping to get the opportunity to combine my two loves and create my dream job.

My rate would be $9hr per child.

I am open and willing to work with different schedules and times during the day. I hope to at the least have 25hrs a week per kid, and no more then 35hr (but again, open for discussion) Also open to nanny share.

Location is SW Portland, Raleigh Hills. Near the Fred Meyer and New Seasons off Beaverton Hillsdale.

I have a list of great references that would love to talk to you, I am CPR certified, and am willing to send my resume.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Little Imprints Preschool in North Portland

One opening available for the 2016-2017 school year.

We are a community based preschool that believes in instilling a love of learning, play, and exploration to the children in our care. Our school is designed with the intent of teaching children to become confident and effective communicators. We achieve this aim by having a low child to teacher ratio, while providing a safe, comfortable environment for the children to practice all the important life skills they will need to prosper.

Our daily routine involves a multitude of authentic, open ended materials, engaging art, nature, and music activities, and healthy organic snacks. We believe that less is more in the preschool environment, and the materials and objects within the school are tailored to expand upon the interests of each and every child. We have a large, fenced in backyard, and frequently explore the neighborhoods and parks surrounding the school. Indoor and outdoor play are equally important, and we go outside each day rain or shine.

We are located near the New Seasons in North Portland (close to the intersection of N Rosa Parks and N Interstate), Little Imprints is a certified, in-home preschool. We offer care Tuesday through Friday, from 8:30 until 3:00. Half days are available from 8:30 until 12:30. Care is available for preschool aged children, between 3 and 5 years old. We follow the Portland Public School schedule for all major holiday and seasonal closings.
