Looking for 1 child to share nanny in NE Portland Nanny Share

January 30, 2014

We have an 11 month old son, and are in the process of hiring a nanny and are looking for another family with a child of similar age (6-18 months) to share our nanny in NE Portland.  We are happy to have the share at our home in the Grant Park/Hollywood neighborhood, but are open to going to another family's home for some of the share. 

Currently, we need care for half-day Monday (9-1) , all day Tues-Thursday (8-5), and half-day Friday (9-12:30); we would love to find a family that would have similar or even full time needs so that our nanny will have nearly full time work.  Our current thinking around rate is $16/hr ($8/hr per family).  We will likely have our nanny hired in the next week or two, and would be ready to start a share in about the same timeline. 

Please email me at lesleysacks@gmail.com if this seems like a good fit for you!

Needed: Part-Time Babysitter/Nanny for Occasional In-Home Care

January 15, 2014

Hello!  We are seeking a loving, responsible, experienced caregiver for occasional in-home care during the day. We have an occasion coming right up (next week - 1/23 thru 1/26) which will serve as a trial run for additional engagements in the future.

Our daughter is 7. 5 months old. Both my husband and I work from home. We currently split childcare duties during the day. Next week I'll be working "out of the (home) office" for four days straight, including the weekend. We're looking for someone to pick up some of the hours, so that he can get his work done and get a rest.

Responsibilities are pretty simple:

Supervising playtime
Playing with our daughter
Feeding (she recently started solids - at stage 2)
Putting her down for a nap
Light housekeeping when there's time :)

You have extensive experience as a nanny or long-term babysitter, really understand kids, have the appropriate certifications (including emergency baby care - infant CPR, etc), are willing to adhere to our parenting philosophy (read: discipline isn't really needed at this point - more supervision than correction) and are also willing to help around the house if a free moment arises. Preferably, you'd have the ultimate in experience - being a mom yourself!  But if not, other experience is fine too

Contact Elizabeth via email at fiddlegrrl@yahoo.com ASAP if interested.  Looking forward to hearing from you!

Looking for 1 child to share our nanny in SE Hawthorne nanny share

January 12, 2014

We have one wonderful nanny and one 13 month old (our son), and we're looking for one more child to join our nanny share in SE Portland. Currently the nanny share is at our house in the SE Hawthorne neighborhood but we are open to holding it at your house. Since last March, we've had our son and one other boy, same age, in the nanny share, but the other family has moved to North Portland and the commute is too much for us all.

Our nanny is experienced and came with good references. She is very playful, loving, kind, and sets good boundaries for the babies. She likes to get out - going on walks to the park, OMSI, going to PELP sign language classes, or other activities.

We have a safe space for the kiddos, and separate rooms for sleeping for each of them. She sings to them, teaches them sign language, and is really invested in giving each baby what he needs to thrive.

The current hours are 8-5pm. The current rate is $13/hour, split between the two families ($6.5 each). We only need care 4 days a week, but our nanny may be available 5 days/week. We think a child around the same age as our son (1+ year old) would work best.

Please email alliequady@gmail.com if this sounds like it could work for you!

Seeking PT Nanny or AuPair

December 31, 2013

I'm looking for part-time live-in childcare for January 2014-July 2014 for my 6 year old daughter in SE Portland. She is in half-day kindergarten, and I only work part-time, so the actual number of hours that we need help are not that great. However the hours I'm at work are quite irregular -- sometimes starting at 6am and sometimes ending at 6am, so I definitely need someone who can spend the night once or twice a week. My schedule is also quite variable, but I do know what my shifts will be at least one month in advance.

I was an exchange student myself after high school, so the idea of hosting an aupair is an appealing one. A little help with lighthousekeeping and meals would be much appreciated as well. Please email me at:  jennymorningglory@gmail.com

Wonderful Nanny/Teacher Available

Hi, I love being a nanny and working with children. I'm a Northwest Nannies Institute graduate. I am a professional nanny with over 15 years of nanny and childcare experience. I'm also a substitute teacher for Northwest Regional ESD. I LOVE working with infants and children of all ages. I'm registered with the Oregon Criminal Registry background check. I'm also registered with a background check with the school district so I can teach. I love working with infants and children of all ages. Working with children is a true joy for me. I believe all children deserve excellent, loving care.

I'm available to work Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays all day plus evenings and weekends. I am also available to do temporary nanny work, and babysitting. In January 2014 I will have a Masters degree and a teaching certificate as an early intervention specialist. This is a teacher that works with children with special needs age 8 and under. I enjoy working as a nanny much more than as a teacher because I get to work more 1 on 1 with children. I'm also a certified personal chef. I enjoy cooking delicious meals for a variety of tastes and dietary needs. The children come first and I only cook if there is time.

Unique Reggio Inspired Childcare Experience

Unique Reggio Inspired Childcare Experience - Flora & Fauna

Flora & Fauna opened our doors in September 2013 and our goal was to support the north portland community with their early childhood education needs by creating a small preschool in North Portland. Well we have listened to our community’s needs - families shared they needed a small affordable full time childcare center. So we are now offering full time childcare for children the ages of 12 months- 5 years of age. At Flora & Fauna, with the environment as the third teacher, we facilitate the development of a child's social and academic skills through interactions with the natural world. Imaginations ignite as we offer beautiful materials and introduce creative discovery, while surrounded by our opulent classroom environment and quiet neighborhood. The important connection a child makes with nature is priceless for their development and growth. Visit our website: www.floraandfaunapreschool.org or contact us at 503-686-5435 and schedule a tour!

SE Nanny Share opening

Hello Urban Mamas,

We have one wonderful nanny and one adorable 1 year old (our son), and we need one more child to join our nanny share in SE Portland begninng January 1st. Currently the nanny share is at our house in the SE Hawthorne neighborhood but we are open to holding it at your house. Since last March, we've had our son and one other boy, same age, in the nanny share, but the other family has moved to North Portland and the commute is too much for us all. Our nanny is experienced and came with good references. She is very playful, loving, kind, and sets good boundaries for the babies. She likes to get out - going on walks to the park, OMSI, or other activities. We have a safe space for the babies, and separate rooms for sleeping for each of them. She sings to them, teaches them sign language, and is really invested in giving each baby what he needs to thrive. The current hours are 8-5pm. The current rate is $13/hour, split between the two families ($6.5 each). We only need care 4 days a week, but our nanny is available 5 days/week. We think a child around the same age as our son (1 yr old) would work best.

Please email alliequady@gmail.com if this sounds like it could work for you!

Best, Allie

Active nanny of 10+yrs seeking good fit

December 04, 2013

Hello hello! My super mellow 3 month and I have three days a week available to spend with other kiddos (Tu/Th/Fr). Because I've been nannying full time for 10+ years, I've grown quite comfortable with the chaos that can ensue when taking care of more than one kid at a time. A sense if humor is what gets me through the day, and maybe a cup of coffee...or three.

I've done nanny shares, watched multiples, worked with special needs middle schoolers as a teachers assistant, lived abroad as an au-pair for 18 months, worked as a traveling nanny and have watched babies other than my own from as young as 3 days old. I like kids.

I'm pretty active so walks are essential but I also like venturing out into Portland for kid friendly adventures as well. Taking the max to the airport to watch planes, riding the tram, feeding ducks, playing in water fountains, library story-time, musical storytelling.... you get the idea. Balance is lovely so sometimes we just stay at home to snuggle, wrestle, bake, do crafts, or have a dance party.

We live in St Johns and am open to have kids dropped off at our place if need be. We have a big fenced in yard to mess around in (with an awesome garden returning this spring!), a few chickens and enough crafts/toys to keep kids of any age happily occupied.

If you'd rather I come to you, that's no problem. I charge anywhere from $8-15hr depending on the situation so feel free to message me with any questions. Best of luck in your search!
