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.

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!

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. 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.

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.

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)
