One Space Available in January for an Infant/Young Toddler in SE Woodstock Area

December 27, 2014

Are you looking for high-quality, affordable, personalized childcare in SE Portland?

Would your child thrive in a small, family-like environment rather than a crowded center?

Do you like the idea of a nanny share, but with a bit more structure and dependability?

 

I have been providing child care for a small group of babies and toddlers in my home since November 2012, shortly after the birth of my oldest son.  Before this, I worked closely with kids of all ages for over 12 years as an environmental educator, elementary school teacher and as a nanny.  I love spending time with children!

 

Our group is very much like a little family; with only four children here at one time, I am able to provide lots of individualized attention.  My oldest son is starting preschool and I will be caring for my youngest son who is 3 months old along with a 6 month old boy and a 13 month old girl.  I have availability for one more child to join our group on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays between the hours of 8:00am-5:00pm.  Additional days or extended hours might be possible as well.  I would love to find a family who is looking for at least 24 hours per week of care for their 3-18 month old child.  My rates are $7.50 per hour for 21+ hours per week and $8.50 per hour for fewer hours per week.  I am able to begin care on January 5th.

 

My home is located near SE Woodstock and 60th.  Inside, we enjoy lots of free play and exploration - there are plenty of books and toys, but no TV!  We like to spend lots of time outside as well - we explore nearby parks, investigate the vegetable garden, make messes on the deck, and play in the fully fenced yard.

 

As a child care provider (and a parent) I value maintaining a flexible routine to our days - I find that young children benefit from knowing the general flow of the day and what is coming next.  I believe that infants and toddlers thrive with consistent and adequate rest, so age-appropriate naps are prioritized.  I even have separate sleeping areas for all four babies!  I am open to supporting a variety of parenting styles and values and I have lots of experience with cloth diapering, bottle feeding, baby wearing, special diets, baby-led weaning, baby sign language, and potty learning.  I am trained in first aid and CPR and have a food handler’s license.  While I don’t adhere to a single parenting or educational methodology, I am familiar with and borrow ideas from the RIE, Attachment Parenting, Waldorf and Montessori philosophies.

 

If it sounds like my care might be a good fit for your family, please contact me with questions or for more information!

Part-time care for two awesome kindergartners - SE Portland

We are looking for a part-time care position available January 5 in SE Portland for two 5 - 6 year old boys.

The nanny's responsibilities will include school pick-ups, preparing snacks, tidying up play and meal areas (with children's help) and encouraging activities that promote the physical, emotional, intellectual, and social development of the children, including outdoor play and art. The ideal caregiver will be fun and interactive, and be neat and organized. Nanny must have first aid/ CPR training, a valid driver's license, and a safe car. Start date and number of days per week is flexible.

In Home Nanny Share

December 22, 2014

Hi, I’m Erin!  My 2 year old daughter Lilia and I are looking for some new friends to join our nanny-share.  I am a former educator turned stay at home mom and worked at the Ivy School, a public charter Montessori elementary, before Lilia was born, and have been doing in home child care for friends and co-workers ever since.  For the past 18 months we have been growing and learning together with our friend Bryce, but sadly, he’s growing up and moving on. 

Lilia is a curious and active little girl and loves to read her books and play her keyboard.  She also likes to play outside in our backyard, paint, cook, and play in sensory bins.  She is very musical and sings all day long and has been developing social skills and discovering her individuality by playing with Bryce.  We would love to have one or two friends who are around 1.5 to 3 join us in our Laurelhurst/Kerns area home 3-5 days a week for music, coloring, painting (we LOVE to paint), playing matching games, putting together puzzles, baking, yoga, science experiments, dancing, taking walks, and going on outings to the library, the Children’s museum, the zoo, OMSI, and the park, with Grandma (my mom lives nearby and loves to spend time with us).

I've been a nanny for the past 12 years and with each family I have learned and grown as person and I believe I know and understand children very well. My own observations and first hand experiences have shown me that there is no one-way of approaching and caring for a child, you need a diverse skill-set and boatloads of patience. I love being a nanny and have been blessed to work with great families, but as I look towards retiring I want maximize my positive impact on as many children as possible in this time-frame. So as a nanny and grandma, I feel it’s a natural progression for me to open my home to a small group of young people to provide a long-term and peaceful environment that will foster their journey towards becoming world citizens.

Nanny Wanted for our already established nanny share:

About the kids: Will, who will turn one in December, likes to stand up on things, push chairs to walk, and crawl after the cats. He’s adventurous, funny, and is currently taking one short morning nap and one more solid afternoon nap. Esther will be 19 months. She often takes one killer 2-3 hour afternoon nap. She is into art, taking on and off her rain boots, learning new words, and doing things herself (with nearby support if needed.) Esther is dairy free and pescatarian (vegetarian plus fish- no chicken, meat, etc)

About the families: Brad and Heather live in the Kenton Neighborhood of North Portland. Brad is in medical school. Heather works from home, and ideally a Nanny would pick Will up in the morning and take him to Becca and Cort’s house in the Alberta Arts neighborhood. Becca and Cort are queer Jewish liberals. Cort works and is in Grad school. Becca works at Grant High School and follows the school schedule. The share is at the house in the Alberta Arts area. There are two indoor only cats who are just thrilled to be hugged by toddlers (I kid!).

About the gig:
This job would start January 5th and continue through the end of the school year (for staff) which is mid June. There would be no work for school holidays (ie MLK day, President’s day, Spring Break). Monday through Friday. Pick up Will at 7:30am, kids are picked up at 4:30pm (though sometimes Becca gets home earlier or later depending on meetings, never after 5) Nanny must have first aid/ CPR training, and a valid driver’s license, safe car. In addition to picking up Will in the morning, we hope for the kids to get out of the house daily… this can range from a neighborhood adventure, trip to a park, or trips to OMSI or the Children’s Museum (families have memberships to both.) Car seats provided. We are looking for someone patient and loving, who can handle kids who are in developmentally different places. Also someone who texts pictures to the parents would be appreciated!

Creative Minds Learning Centers-Now Enrolling!

Creative Minds Learning Centers have been designed to encourage children to explore their interests in a creative and artistic setting. Our philosophy is to enrich children's lives with creative arts and accredited educational materials while developing self esteem, confidence and a sense of independence. While there are many approaches and "labels" for teaching young children, Creative Minds schools focuses on the basis of early childhood development being "trichotomized" into a trio of goals: (1) social/emotional development and (2) intellectual development and (3) the acquisition of meaningful and useful academic skills.

Creative Minds is now Enrolling! 

Westmoreland, Broadway, Gateway, Woodstock and Sellwood Locations:

Hello, future nanny!

The basics: $15/hr; Southwest Portland; 8 am – 3 pm M – F; flexibility to occasionally stay until 5 pm; start date when we find that right person.

This includes meal prep, baby laundry, and light cleaning such as emptying the dishwasher and folding laundry. No toilets!

You must have: Prior experience with babies and toddlers, multiple references that can attest to the above, your own vehicle, recent infant first aid and CPR certification.

Thank you so much!

Nanny needed starting January

October 10, 2014

We are in search of a nanny for a nanny share starting in January.  We are two teachers who will have a four month old and 9 month old. We would need care Monday-Thursdays.  Monday, Wednesday and Thursday would be 7:30-4:00 and Tuesdays would be 7:30-5:30.  We will follow the PPS school calendar for holidays and such (taking a break for spring break, etc.).  Care would take place at one home in North Portland near Gatenbein/Failing, just blocks from the school we teach at and right in the center of the growing Boise/Mississippi neighborhood. 

 We are looking for someone who loves babies, is excited to take them on daily walks to the park or music time and activities, and who is comfortable with cloth diapering.  We also teach at the K-8 school just down the street and we would enjoy visits/nursing sessions with the babies, when our schedules allow, and would ask that the nanny walk them up to school occasionally. Send an email if interested and please include your experience with children and interests.  We can’t wait to hear from you!
