Looking For Family To Share Our Amazing Nanny In Overlook

April 16, 2016

We have an incredible nanny, Kelly, who has been watching our 20 month old girl since she was 8 weeks old and are losing the family we've been sharing her with at the end of April.  Kelly speaks only in Spanish to our daughter, is experienced (former Childroots employee), reliable, and so great with the little ones.

We live in the Overlook neighborhood (close in N Portland) near Mississippi and we're open to the new family coming over to our home or trading off back and forth between houses.  Kelly's current hours are Mondays 8:45-5:30, Tuesdays 9:15-6:30, and Fridays 9:15-6:30.  We're flexible with the hours, if you don't need full days we could share for a portion of the day.  Email Andrea at andreaneal99@yahoo.com or call 714-883-5792 for more info.

After-School Childcare + Transportation in NE + SE Portland (15+ hours/week)

Our family is looking for an experienced caregiver for after-school childcare and transportation beginning in May. We have a bright 7-year-old son who is in 1st Grade and loves reading, Mindcraft, math, legos, Star Wars and gardening. Our sweet 3-year-old daughter is in preschool and loves to draw, read, paint and is obsessed with Frozen.

We need somebody M-F beginning at 2:50pm when our son is picked up at Sabin Elementary in NE Portland. You would spend a few hours with him at the park, library or at home etc, and then at 5pm pick up our daughter at a neighborhood preschool in inner North Portland. The kids would then need to be driven to either mom’s house in SE Portland or dad’s house in NE Portland (they split their time between the two). The end time is approximately 6pm daily, with the possibility of some longer days if it works for your and our schedules.

The immediate need is for someone to help with the remainder of the school year, from May 1 through mid-June, and ideally to continue providing some help during the summer before resuming the same schedule of after-school care in the fall.

You must have a good driving record, a safe and reliable car (with adequate insurance), and we will provide child seats.

Salary is negotiable and will include mileage reimbursement.

Looking for summer Nanny share in S Tabor

April 14, 2016

Hi All!

We are looking for a summertime Nanny share for our 1 year old. We would be happy to host at our place or drop her somewhere close by. We are an outdoor-loving, kitchen-dancing, clean the house with vinegar sort of a gang. Abi is the 1 year old and on rare occasion we may throw in the 4 year old. Abi's got a spot in a childcare center starting in September so we just need an arrangement from mid-May through August. 

Please email me if you have any leads or are interested in setting something up! 

Thanks-

SWEET RIVER BAMBOO PRESCHOOL & NURSERY NOW ENROLLING FOR SUMMER & FALL! NE PDX

IMG_1702

Sweet River Bamboo Preschool & Nursery is a LifeWays and Waldorf inspired program nurturing the spirit of childhood. Located in NE Portland, we are a predominantly Waldorf program and take inspiration from Montessori and Reggio philosophies to create an environment that is well balanced and suited to the social/emotional development of the young  child.  

A year round program, we are a small and mindful group of 2 teachers and 8 children from 18m-kindergarten ready. Enrollment options are for one, two, or three days a week:  Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 8:45a-12:30p. or 8:45a-2:45p.

Held in a loving home surrounded by beauty and toys made of natural materials, a gentle rhythm carries children through open play, song circles, outside adventures (we live right by Oregon Park!) and rest. Painting, arts and crafts and baking are other activities we do together weekly. Influenced greatly by Nature's rhythm, acknowledgment of and festive celebrations of the seasons are a big deal at Sweet River Bamboo! 


Lead Teacher Sara (Sahra) is a Waldorf inspired teacher with 20 years of childcare experience with children of all ages. Her time with children has taught her how to slow down, find playful moments in every activity, and to stay present, loving and kind. Sara has learned that encouraging creativity and being out in nature daily is imperative for the well being of children (and adults!) She has observed that placing children in mixed age environments that are warm and loving is immensely helpful in aiding their ability to learn, thrive and grow securely and whole heartedly. Sara brings warmth, creativity, intention and love to the children in her care and holds a nourishing container for the preschool group as a whole. Sara's multi cultural and multi lingual background and years of extensive world travel bring a nice flavor to the school. Her decade long exploration of psychology, dance and various forms of mindful movement practices influence the curriculum greatly. 

Space is limited. Our program launches in N.E. (currently in the S.W.) on Monday, June 6th. Please contact Sara at 503-432-6414 or saralizadeh@hotmail.com with your interest and questions. A complete overview of the program including tuition rates will be provided via email at your request. 


Thank you for considering this magical program for your child!

PT Nanny share in Alameda Neighborhood

We are located in the Alameda neighborhood. Our nanny, Angela, currently cares for our daughter, Leila, from 7:30 am until 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday. Our nanny is also available on Fridays (at your home) if you are looking for care five days a week. We are looking for another family to join us for fun, arts and outdoor play during some or all of those hours.

We love our nanny. She holds a BA in early childhood education and was previously an Au Pair before we found her. She is fluent in English, but only speaks Spanish to Leila. Angela typically takes Leila to the library and park once a week, but also makes trips to OMSI and other fun spots. We incorporate arts and crafts projects every week.

Leila is happy and affectionate, and she likes books, outdoors and music among the other typical 20 month-old interests. She is equally talkative in Spanish and English.

We like organic food, playful learning and a positive environment. We're flexible with the schedule. We'd like to find one child to join us for care - to create a more social (and more fun) environment for both kids - while maintaining one-on-one interaction. We have a large indoor play space with too many toys and live two blocks from the park. Leila takes one nap a day at about noon, and we are hoping to find another child who is on a similar nap schedule. If this sounds like it might be a good fit for you, please email me at

Michele.wasson@gmail.com.

Take care.

Nanny or nanny share in St. John's, PDX

March 20, 2016

Hello, mamas!  My baby girl was born Feb 21st, and I will be heading back to work May 1st.  My husband and I both work in restaurants, so we're looking for childcare on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays.  The weekend care would be from about 9-6, Mondays would be a bit earlier, 8-6.  I was wondering if there was a stay-at-home Mama that would be willing to take on our baby for $.  Or...is there a Mama out there that would watch my baby girl on Mondays, and I could watch your baby on Tuesdays?  (Then I would only have to pay for a weekend nanny.)  If you're in North Portland, we're willing to drop her off, or you're welcome to watch kiddos at our home.  The only thing is that we have a pit bull that would take a little time to get to know, but he's an old dog and happy to chill in the bedroom.  If this sounds good to you, please email me, Helena, at hbrpdx@gmail.com.  Thanks!!!

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)!  

Currently we are seeking someone who can start as soon as possible for after school care monday-thursdays and friday noon-about 6:30. 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

Please email me at marinelli.alexandra@gmail.com Please message if you would like to speak further about this position or send your resume if you feel our family may be the right fit for you.

Thanks so much for your time!

SWEET RIVER BAMBOO PRESCHOOL & NURSERY NOW ENROLLING FOR JUNE! NE PDX

IMG_1702

Sweet River Bamboo Preschool & Nursery is a LifeWays and Waldorf inspired program nurturing the spirit of childhood. Located in NE Portland, we are a predominantly Waldorf program and take inspiration from Montessori and Reggio philosophies to create an environment that is well balanced and suited to the social/emotional development of children in this age group.  

A year round program, we are a small and mindful group of 2 teachers and 8 children from 18m-kindergarten ready. Enrollment options are for one, two, or three days a week:  Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 8:45a-12:30p. or 8:45a-2:45p.

Held in a loving home surrounded by beauty and toys made of natural materials, a gentle rhythm carries children through open play, song circles, outside adventures (we live right by Oregon Park!) and rest. Painting, arts and crafts and baking are other activities we do together weekly. Influenced greatly by Nature's rhythm, acknowledgment of and festive celebrations of the seasons are a big deal at Sweet River Bamboo! 


Lead Teacher Sara (Sahra) is a Waldorf inspired teacher with 20 years of childcare experience with children of all ages. Her time with children has taught her how to slow down, find playful moments in every activity, and to stay present, loving and kind. Sara has learned that encouraging creativity and being out in nature daily is imperative for the well being of children (and adults!) She has observed that placing children in mixed age environments that are warm and loving is immensely helpful in aiding their ability to learn, thrive and grow securely and whole heartedly. Sara brings warmth, creativity, intention and love to the children in her care and holds a nourishing container for the preschool group as a whole. Sara's multi cultural and multi lingual background and years of extensive world travel bring a nice flavor to the school. Her decade long exploration of psychology, dance and various forms of mindful movement practices influence the curriculum greatly. 

Space is limited. Our program launches in N.E. (currently in the S.W.) on Monday, June 6th. Please contact Sara at 503-432-6414 or saralizadeh@hotmail.com with your interest and questions. A complete overview of the program including tuition rates will be provided via email at your request. 


Thank you for considering this magical program for your child!

Nanny Available Part Time

February 26, 2016

I’m currently working Mondays and Wednesdays with a great family and I’m hoping to find another fantastic family (or families) to work with Tue/Thu/Fri or some combination of those days, Tu/Th would be best. I live close to Kennedy School so my ideal situation would be to find a family who doesn’t live too far away; though I do have a car, I don’t want a really long commute.

I’ve worked in the field of childcare for 20 years, 5 years of that time as a nanny. In addition to working in day cares and preschools, I’ve worked in after school programs; an art based summer camp, and was the art teacher for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders at a Montessori school.

A few things past employers have said about me are:

– “She's able to quickly come up with fresh ideas to keep children interested in projects and adapt to each child's developmental skill level, while challenging their limits and imagination.”

– “She is a calm and steady presence around the house, as well as a natural with kids. Both my kids hit it off with her right away, and they are always happy to see her when she arrives.”

– “She comes up with games that are perfect for their ages, and has a real knack for getting them to have fun playing together.”

– “Has a wonderfully calm and quiet, yet powerful presence that children naturally follow.”

I’m still in touch with several families I’ve worked for in the past. When you’re a nanny you develop a relationship with the whole family, not just the child(ren). I'm CPR & first aid certified. I’m a non-smoker and am comfortable around pets.

Please email me at nepdxnanny@yahoo.com and I can send you my resume and references. I look forward to hearing from you.
