Nanny or Nanny-Share on Thursdays

Hello,

We're looking for childcare for our fun-loving 19 month-old son, Brooks, starting in January and going through June. We actually only need coverage on Thursdays so joining a nanny share would be ideal but we're completely open to other suggestions and proposals. We live in SW Portland close to Multnomah Village near many parks and we're happy to have a nanny come to our house or we can do a drop-off if it's a daycare or nanny-share situation. We'd be looking for about 8-10 hours per week, each Thursday through June (ideally).

If this sounds of interest or like a potential fit, please email me so we can set up a time to chat!

Thanks so much and look forward to hearing from you!

Childcare Available in St. John's - January 2016

December 14, 2015

TaraRemy

Hello families! My name is Tara. I'm a stay-at-home mom with over 10 years of experience working in childcare. I've decided to start offering childcare from my home near Pier Park in St. John's beginning this coming January. 

ABOUT ME

I’ve been working as a nanny on and off for about 10 years, in addition to holding other jobs in the arts, teaching and retail fields. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Media Production and would eventually like to return to that field, but I also have a true passion for working with children. I believe in nature-based education, positive discipline and free play with an emphasis on music and the arts. I have been trained in early childhood education, have been CPR/First Aid certified (currently in the process of re-certifying) and I’ve got excellent references. I have experience with twins, premies, toddlers, cloth/disposables, breastmilk/formula and accommodating a variety of diets (gluten-free, vegan, etc.)

ABOUT OUR HOME

Our home is located near Pier Park in the St. John’s neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. We strive to keep all play spaces pesticide, toxic-chemical and screen-free. Play areas include a variety of toys, books, and musical instruments, as well as art and craft supplies.

Our daily routine includes a walk to the park or Swap & Play, working in the garden, preparing healthy meals, dancing to music, and arts & crafts time in addition to an afternoon nap from 12-2pm.

AVAILABILITY + RATE

UPDATED 1/18/16: I now have availability for one toddler, aged 2-4, Tuesday-Friday 9am-4pm (fewer days/hours are okay)

My rate is $10 per hour per child, with a 3 child maximum (including my own). I am also available for date night, on-call and short-term babysitting.

If you’d like to learn more about me, please email me at taradswenson@gmail.com. I’m happy to provide my outstanding references, and to undergo a background check if you like.

I’d love to hear about your family and what you are looking for!

– Tara

 

Hi mamas, I have 2 kids and am trying to figure out if I will hire a nanny or put them both in full-time childcare.

I wanted to know what the going hourly rate is for a full time nanny (40+ hours) for 1 child (1.5 yo) or if she watches both. Thank you so much. I can be reached at liquid_amber2001@yahoo.com

Thanks
Kerry

Very Part Time Nanny Available - until end of May 2016

10712891_316259861879380_7571252223867451494_n

Hello! My name is Jenni, and I am in my late 20's, living in the NE Portland Woodlawn neighborhood. I am currently looking for some part-time (roughly 10-15 hrs a week) childcare work. I will be leaving Portland in June, so I can only commit until the end of May. I love love love working with children, and have been doing so since I was 13. I mainly have cared for 2-5 year olds, though I have experience with infants to tweens. My childcare approach is one that values loving presence, healthy attachment, emotional intelligence / healthy expression, and creative exploration. I love to play outside all times of the year. I enjoy cooking healthy, wholesome, organic meals. I am tidy, and always leave spaces better than I found them. My days and times are currently flexible, though I would love something consistent. I have a strong community of friends, and many of them nannies, so I could likely support the transition when the time comes by helping find my replacement (though no guarantees). I am currently training in Mindfulness / Body-Centered therapy and will be moving into a career as a counselor in the next couple years. I have found my work with children feeds that work and vice-versa. My background is also in yoga, mindfulness, and meditation, and I love finding subtle ways to bring that into children's lives. Activities I love to share are: going on adventures in nature, even if only to the park or around the block, making music or teaching songs, going to see fun shows or to museums, doing seasonal crafts with recycled & / or natural materials, reading or making up stories, dance parties, yoga / stretching, cooking projects, & more! I have a car available for use, it can fit two car seats. I am insured and have a clean record.

I love reading and learning about alternative childcare, so if there is a topic or a book you are particularly passionate about, I would likely be more than happy to read it in my spare time, and incorporate it in my work.

Please email me with your interest Jengold23@gmail.com - I would love to hear about you & your family, your values, what neighborhood you live in, & sending pictures is always helpful! Please do not email me for full-time work as I am not interested or available. Please note: I am in school one weekend (including Friday) a month, so if you need consistent care on those days, I am not able to meet that need.

FYI - my rates begin at $15 an hour, and increase by $2 for each additional child. I am happy to provide references upon request. 

Thank you for reading. Be well.

Nanny with 20 years childcare experience seeks new family

December 02, 2015

I’m looking for a great new family to work with. I’ve worked in the field of childcare for 20 years, 5 years of that time as a nanny. In addition to working in daycares 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 a non-smoker and am comfortable around pets. Please email Alisa at nepdxnanny@yahoo.com and I can send you my resume and references. I look forward to hearing from you.

*Ideally I'm searching for a permanent position but am also available for short term holiday help, anything from a few hours to a few days. I will also consider long term temporary positions of a few months.

FT Caring, Reliable and Playful Nanny looking to help!

November 12, 2015


  My name is Alaina and I am 27-year-old Portland native, who's hoping to find a full time nanny position starting in the next 2-5 weeks. I am available M-F and hoping to work at least 35 hours a week, but not exceeding 40. Ideally 4 days a week, but if the right position comes along that’s otherwise then I am open!

  My most current job is sadly ending due to the mother having a change in work schedule. I became close with the children, ages 1 and 3 and will really miss them. We stayed busy with lots of activities, the favorites being park trips, art projects, OMSI, make believe, and lots of books! We stuck to a pretty flexible schedule each day, incorporating naps, and down time. I would write down miles driven, nap times take, and food eaten. Along with any other fun things done throughout the day I think the parents would like to hear about.

  Prior to this position I was at a Pre-school/Daycare called West Hills Learning Center, in Multnomah Village. I started out as the Assistant Teacher in the Pre-K classroom, when I decided to start looking for a nanny job I moved to part time as a floater, which had me working in all of the classrooms 8 months- 5 years old. West Hills was a great place to work, and I learned so much there, with all of the different ages, to teaching styles, and large number of children in each class, I really soaked up as much knowledge as I could to help me in my future child care positions. With that said, I have realized I thrive more in a smaller group setting. I like the intimacy and attention you are able to give each child. I like growing close with the families, and having the time to be able to give updates to the parents about how the day went, and what new fun things we did during the day. I have also worked for the Beaverton School District as a Substitute Teacher's Assistant, I worked in mostly special ed classrooms, and children with behavioral issues, ranging for K-12. I have worked in after school art programs, and I have been a Nanny to multiple families, which I have grown to have great relationships with. Kids age ranging from 3 months-8 years old. Of course I have babysat throughout every job I have had starting at a very early age. With all my past experience I have always gone back to wanting to be a Nanny, I believe it truly is my passion to care for children, and there is no greater feeling then leaving a days work actually feeling like you have made a difference in someone’s life. 

 A little about me, and my teaching style; like I said before 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. Letting the child know they are loved and cared for on a daily basis, making sure they are comfortable and knowing you are there for them with all of their questions and concerns, helping them when they need help, but also letting them try new things on their own, and learning together is the most important thing I can provide as a Nanny and caregiver. 

 As a Nanny, I would make sure each day we would go outside, hopefully incorporate arts and crafts on a daily basis (because I love art projects as much as the kids do!) read books, prepare healthy snacks, listen and dance to music, explore new parks, and honestly just try to learn and play as much as we can, and have a great time doing it! 

 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. With that said, I really enjoy working with younger children and being able to watch them grow. Babies especially! The connection you form when their babies into toddlers is so important. I want to treat my next job as much as a career as possible, 1 week paid vacation/holiday pay, taxed, 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, 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. Pay is negotiable of course depending on the age and number of children. (An Idea of pay range I am used to: 1 Infant-6 Month $15, two+ children $16-17, Nanny share $18-20)

 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. 

 Even though I myself am not a mother yet, 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, and references which gives in greater detail my childcare experience, we can chat on the phone before meeting to see if we would be a good fit for each other! 

  
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!

Alaina has worked for us for several months now caring for our 3 and 1 year old kids.  We have just made the decision for me to stay home with the kids.  While this is great for our family, we are so sorry to see Alaina go.Alaina was very quick to bond with the kids.  She has a very calm and quiet demeanor and nicely balances the high energy of 2 toddlers.  They happily crawl into her lap for books as I slip out in the morning.  At the same time, she will crawl around on the floor and actively play with the kids.Alaina keeps the kids active.  They always spend time outside, walking to the park, collecting leaves and rocks or scouting out the neighborhood pets.  She is independent, is able to plan appropriate activities and meals for the kids on her own.  At the same time, if we have specific requests regarding the schedule, she is very receptive and helps us implement our plans.  Alaina has been very reliable.  She is always on time, has never called out sick. She has always been willing to stay on the few occasions we have needed her to.  Most importantly, I know that I can trust her with our kids.  I know that she cares about them and they just love her.  It can be so hard to have someone in your home caring for your kids but having Alaina made it so much easier.  It is clear right away that she has a good understanding of kids and truly cares about her work.  Another family will be lucky to have her.

Opening in N. Portland Nanny Share

November 08, 2015

We have an opening for full-time care in our nanny share starting anytime 11/16 or later. We have an 8-month old son who is in the share all day, and our 3-year old daughter is there from noon until we get home. The ideal child would be between 6 and 12 months old.  We host it at our home in inner North Portland (near Peninsula Park) and are set up for multiple kids, you would just need to provide any gear and supplies (highchair, diapers, etc.) you wanted. We have a great nanny who has been with us since the summer and has extensive childcare experience with infants and toddlers.

The hours are roughly 8:15-4:30 every day M-F (can be flexible although we ask that both families stick to the same range of hours).   Your share of the cost would be $1200 split into two monthly payments -- a steal for full-time infant care! We also provide ample paid time off for the nanny. Please email me for more details or if you are interested.

MicaelaMiCuerpo FelixWaterServing BakingAndreaFall2014 LilliSandpaperLetters

Manos Unidas Montessori is new to the Lents neighborhood in Southeast Portland. We are located between Woodstock and Foster Blvd on 87th Avenue, right down the street from the Lents Max Train. We offer educational programs for children six weeks to six years old.

Manos Unidas Montessori, or 'MUM' focuses on the whole child, low impact environmental practices, food, peacemaking, and community building.  We offer Spanish-English bilingual programs as we believe Spanish is an extremely important language to know, and offering children other languages at a young age is the most effective way to build a bilingual community, opening doors for children as they grow into adults.

We currently have openings in our Primary Program for children mostly toilet independent, and openings in our Toddler Program (children walking to age three) for January 2016.

Seeking occassional care on Thursdays for 1 and 3 year old girls

October 08, 2015

Do you have Thursdays free and are looking for occasional childcare work?  We're looking for a babysitter for our sweet, fun, and adventurous one and three year old girls.  We live in inner NE Portland, near NE 8th and Fremont.

Ideally you would have other regular employment or be a mom looking for occasional supplemental income. If you are a parent, we wouldn't mind if you brought your kiddo over to our house to play with the girls while you care for them. Please have recent experience caring for young children. I'm hoping to keep my awesome work schedule for several years, so this could be a long term gig.

I work part-time, but occasionally I need to go into the office for a few hours (3-6 hours) on Thursdays.  The hours would fall between 8-4.  Generally, I know of my childcare needs several weeks in advance. 

Looking forward to hearing from you! Jackie  eaton.jaclyn@gmail.com
