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.

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

February 17, 2016

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-2:45p. or 8:45a-12:30p.

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!

Experienced nanny and infant son looking for a family

Experienced nanny looking for part time work.

There is joy to be found in sunshine and joy to be found in the rain. Lessons in love to be found in the people we meet and for the environment we share. Kids are such beautiful sponges anxious to understand and become a part of the world around them. It is an honor to guide children, helping them to feel confident and capable in what can sometimes be an overwhelming and scary place.

I have had the privilege of helping to raise 3 boys for the last 11 years along side a self-employed single mother doing the the hardest job imaginable. Having been involved in every facet of parenting and household management I have the experience to step right into any role. My ability to smoothly adapt helps ease transitions in care as every family has their own style of guidance and ideals for living in this world we share.

After having my own son last November I have decided to cut my hours back a bit and bring him along with me on my nanny adventures. If you would like to see if we would work well as a team I’d love to send you my resume and references along with setting up a time to chat.

Seeking PT nanny for NE (Sabin) family (infant & 3 year old)

February 01, 2016

We are looking for a nanny to join our family. We have one boy, 3.5 years old, who is in preschool and one newborn baby girl... And 2 cats and a dog, whew! We live in Sabin neighborhood and our son goes to preschool 8:30-12:30 nearby. We are looking for an experienced, confident, and fun-loving nanny to join our family for the long haul. To start, we will need 20 hours/week childcare, full days T/Th and 4 hours flex, when I return to work part time. Mornings will be quiet, caring for the baby only. Experience with bottle feeding expressed breast milk, a plus. We do a lot of baby wearing, so a strong core/back is a must. Our son is very active, so afternoons will be much more high paced. Daily outdoor adventures to the park, hike, soccer field, etc. will keep him entertained. Art projects, reading, and other indoor activities too. I start back at work in April but we would like to hire by mid-March so that we can overlap care for a week or so.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Our nanny is also available on Fridays (at your home) if you are looking for care five days a week.

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 18 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. If this sounds like it might be a good fit for you, please email me at Michele.wasson@gmail.com.

Take care.

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. We are looking for another family to join us for fun, arts and outdoor play during some or all of those hours. Our nanny is also available on Fridays (at your home) if you are looking for care five days a week.

Looking for After School Nanny to start in March

January 29, 2016

Hello!  We are looking for an after school nanny to pick up our almost 5 year old and our 4 month old from Tiny Revolution Montessori School beginning in March.  The schedule would be 10 hours per week - from 3:30-6pm, Monday - Thursday.  Tiny Revolution is on MLK between Tillamook and San Rafael, and we live on SE 46th Avenue between Stark and Belmont.

You must have experience taking care of two kids and previous infant care is required. We would love someone with an appreciation for Montessori and RIE principles. We try to create a certain amount of predictability for our kids while also allowing them to choose what they want to play, explore, and learn. Assistance with light housework such as unloading the dishwasher, getting a simple dinner started, putting in a load of laundry, or tidying the kitchen or play areas would be great.  You will need your own car and a clean driving record.
 
We have previously participated in a nanny share and absolutely loved the experience! We are open to chatting about what works best for all parties and are happy to provide further details about our family and the schedule in person or over the phone. Pay is $14 per hour. Please send any questions or a cover letter and a resume outlining your experience to Ashley Cartmel (ashleycartmel@gmail.com)

Seeking PT Nanny Share in outer SE (or other referral)

I work somewhat odd hours and am reaching out in hopes of joining a nanny share or other in-home child care situation.

My daughter Rose is 11 months and I need care every Wednesday from 8:00am until 6:30pm. Also, if available, I need care on 1-2 Tuesdays per month, from 10am-6:30pm. However, drop-off and pick-up times could be negotiable depending on the situation. These have been difficult hours to find care for, without being able to afford the cost of having 1:1 care. So if you are someone, or know someone who would like to add a part time person to their nanny share or in-home care, the referral would be much appreciated. My email is jenna_krueger@msn.com

A little about us: I am a therapist who works for Kaiser Permanente part time, and my partner is a full time acupuncturist who works at two locations in the Portland area. Our daughter is active, curious, and very engaged with caregivers. We live in outer SE but would be willing to travel further in for the right situation. Thank you!

Seeking a Fun-loving Family (and Nanny) for Nanny Share

January 26, 2016

We are a new-to-Portland family with two little ones looking for an experienced full-time nanny to care for our kiddos. We just came out of a fantastic nanny share situation back east, where we employed a nanny for over two years with our neighbors and are in search of a similar set-up here in Portland. At present, we are interested either in joining an existing nanny share (with an immediate opening) OR finding a family that is in a position similar to ours to jointly hire and employ a nanny.

A little bit about us: We just relocated from Washington, DC, and have a 2.5 YO and 3 month old (both girls). We have a 65 lb. yellow lab with a lot of energy and love for humans (especially ones that drop food when they eat) and snoozy cat that keeps to himself. We lead an active lifestyle by running, cycling, and hiking, and enjoy good food and drink (hence, the move the Portland!). We are both professionals with full-time jobs (although I am currently still home on maternity leave) with backgrounds in public policy, education, and consulting.

What we’re looking for in a nanny: We are seeking a kind, caring, interactive, and playful caregiver who possesses strong references and a desire to work with both infants and toddlers. The We would like caregiver to have Infant First Aid & CPR training and ideally some background (formal or informal) in early childhood education.  We are only interested in a non-smoking caregiver. 

The schedule: M-F from 7:30am or 8am to 5pm but we are open to slightly different hours if needed. And we would be open to taking on a larger “share” of the nanny if there is a family seeking a share but not full-time like we are.

The location: We are open to a combination of our house and your house if they are close enough together; happy to host ourselves or have you host. We are in Buckman on 15th Ave just a south of Belmont--walkable to Colonel Summers Park, Laurelhurst Park, Buckman Elementary, OMSI, the Children’s Gym, and a wide array of kid-friendly activities. We have a separate room in the house where your child can sleep in a pack and play.  Our preference is that our nanny does not drive the kids anywhere during the day; however, if that’s a sticking point, we’re open to discussing other options.

If you are a caregiver interested in a FT nanny position OR a family interested in sharing a nanny with us, please contact Sara at sara.e.kerr@gmail.com. 

Thanks!
Sara

Frog Song Montessori Preschool Nature Camp

Frog-song-montessori-preschool-header (1) copy

 

Frog Song Montessori Preschool has a strong emphasis on children’s sensorial exploration of nature. Children are naturally and intrinsically drawn to nature, and as concrete, sensorial learners, children 3-5 years of age learn through their own interactions with their environment. Our 14 acres of land allows children the explorative experiences necessary for self-discovery. Each of our five one-week summer camps focuses on a different aspect of the earth that is unique to our property, allowing children the opportunity to learn first hand in their own interactions and explorations of nature.

Week One: July 11th- July 15th

All About Dirt: This week we focus on dirt. In the classroom we will use books, stories, and language cards to learn all about what dirt is composed of, what lives in dirt, and how dirt can be different depending on where it is located. Classroom activities will include  creating things that live in the dirt through collage, sensorial explorations of dirt’s relationship to water and uses of dirt such as, planting a seed, and making dirt babies. Outside explorations will include digging in different areas of the property to discover differences in the soil, discovery digging to see what lives in the soil, and planting plants using soil.

Week Two: July 18th- July 22nd

All About Plants: This week we focus on plants. In the classroom we will use books, stories, language cards and plant care activities to learn all about what plants are, their relationship to the earth, their needs, their functions, and the names of plants that exists on our property using picture cards. Classroom activities will include planting a seed, planting watering, washing the leaves of a plant, leaf rubbing, creating a plant using cut out parts, and making a ‘parts of a plant’ book. Outside activities will include planting sprouted seeds in the garden, going on nature walks to identify plants, and collecting leaves of plants to compare and do leaf rubbings.

Week Three: July 25th- 29th

All About Water: This week we focus on water. Through books, stories, and language cards children will learn all about what water is, it’s importance on the earth, the different forms water takes, how water changes depending on the temperature, and what kinds of things live in water. Classroom activities will include exploration of the different land and water forms and what live in them, plant watering, washing the leaves of a plant, washing mats, tables, etc., and water explorations such as pouring and sponge squeezing. Outside activities will include watering the garden and plants on our playground, along with nature walks and discussions of which plants need more water and why. If our ponds are not dried up we will explore their contents and discover what’s inside!

Week Four: August 1st-5th

All About Trees: This week we will focus on trees. We will provide books, stories, songs and language cards so that children can learn what trees are, the parts of a tree, how they work, and what kinds of trees exist on our property. Classroom activities will include language cards for identifying the parts of a tree, exploration of different kinds of bark, creating a tree from it’s parts through collage, and creating a ‘parts of a tree’ book. Outside activities will include nature walks to identify trees, exploration of the different barks and leaves of trees and their collection for use in the classroom, and watering trees on our property.

Week Five: August 8th-12th

All About Birds: This week we focus on birds. Through books, songs, stories, and language cards we will learn all about what birds are, the different kinds of birds, how their activity changes from season to season, where they sleep, what they eat, etc. Classroom activities will include language cards for learning the names of birds that live on our property, and creating a bird from it’s parts using collage. Outside activities will include nature walks to search for and identify birds on our property, observation and exploration of different habitats birds live in, and construction of our own bird nests using materials we gather from our property.

The cost of our camps are $125/week. For further inquiries please contact Shin'yu at shinyu@frogsongpreschool.org or by phone at (503) 475-9257, or visit our website at frogsongpreschool.org.

MWF Nanny Share--Sellwood

January 18, 2016

We have a wonderful nanny for our 2 1/2 year old. She is kind, caring, interactive, playful, and professional--she graduated from NW Nannies Institute so has professional training and her first aid and cpr certifications. She has been working with our family since 2012 first caring for our 10 month old daughter who has now moved on to preschool and now for our 2 1/2 old. For years now, we’ve shared with 1 to 2 other families but one family just had a change in employment so it’s time for us to find a new family to join us.

The share currently has two little girls including my daughter who is 2.5 and another little girl from the neighborhood who is 22 months and they are dear friends :-)

The schedule: MWF from 7:30am or 8am to 5pm but we are open to slightly different hours if needed.

The location: We are open to a combination of our house and your house if they are close together. We are in Sellwood on 15th Ave just a few blocks south of Tacoma--walkable to Sellwood Park, the Community Center, the library, New Seasons. It’s a great place for the kids to have some activities outside of the house regularly without having to drive somewhere. We will have a separate room in the house where your child can sleep in a pack and play.  We do not have the nanny drive the kids anywhere and that remains important to us but she is happy to do drop off or pick up for your little one if that is something you feel comfortable with.

The rate: $6.00/hour though we do request that you have the flexibility to increase to $8.00 if the share drops down to two children while we look for a 3rd.   We convert the $6.00/hour into a flat weekly rate and pay the same each week regardless of whether there are holidays, sick days, etc--this is so that the nanny has a predictable living wage. 

About us: We have our two wonderful daughters and a 60 lb dog named Meg who mostly keeps to herself. We make efforts to be green--from eating a vegan diet to using cloth diapers and natural products. My husband is a teacher and I work in renewable energy. Please get in touch if you are interested in discussing more! amandamortlock [@] gmail.com

Nanny with 20 years childcare experience seeks family

January 17, 2016

I’m looking for a great new family or families 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 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.

Seeking nanny share -- Join our nanny and 3.5 yr old son

January 07, 2016

We are a family in the Hawthorne area in SE Portland seeking another family to share our wonderful nanny, Suzanne. Suzanne is very caring and reliable, and has several years experience with preschool age children. She primarily cares for our 3 1/2 year old son, with occasional after school care for our 6 year old daughter. We'd like to find another 3-4 year old to join in their adventures and play, which include games, art, baking, reading, fort building, and frequent outings to parks, OMSI, the Zoo, Messy Art, etc. No screen time, and lots of creative, active play. We are interested in more regular play and social opportunities for our son, and can accommodate another child joining any part of our current schedule:
 
Mon and Wed, 8:00-5:00
Tues and Thurs, 1:00-5:30
Possibly some Friday hours
 
If you are interested, contact Emily at 503-516-9552 or moore.emily@comcast.net to talk about schedule, rates and other details.
