Opening for Toddler in Nanny Share - 12 hours/wk (Inner SE-Buckman)

December 04, 2017

Hi Portland families!

My name is Laurel and I have been working full-time as a nanny for 2 and a half years and have been providing childcare for nearly 20 years to children of all ages, ranging from newborn to adolescence. I recently started working in a nanny share and, unfortunately, one of the families wasn’t able to continue. The remaining child is 15 months with a friendly and easygoing temperament. Our current schedule is M-T 9:30-1:30 and Wednesday 10:30-2:30 but we have some flexibility here. The family would prefer to host the share at their home in the Buckman neighborhood. We are looking for a family with a child between 12 months to 2.5 years.

A bit more about me: I studied Family Studies and Human Development as an undergrad and Social Work (with a concentration in Children and Families) as a graduate student. I worked with at-risk children and families as a home visiting social worker before moving into the field of early childhood education where I worked as an educator in both a toddler and mixed age preschool classroom.

I believe that children learn through relationships, play and the ability to interact with a variety of materials and environments. I believe in the power of predictable routines, honest and clear communication, and firm and consistent boundaries. I offer children authentic choices and invite their active participation in the day’s routine whenever possible. I value and welcome the full range of children’s emotions while acknowledging that not all behaviors are acceptable. I closely follow the RIE philosophy as it is the most authentic and respectful childcare approach I have yet to discover.  

I'm CPR/First Aid certified, have a driver's license, a clean driving record and a safe car.

When I’m not working directly with children, I own a small consulting business where I design and organize children’s home play spaces. I like to spend my free time cooking, exploring the incredible wild spaces of the Pacific Northwest, practicing yoga, scouring secondhand stores and watching adventure films.

I'm reliable, experienced and I feel confident that I can provide respectful, responsive care for your child. Please let me know if you have any questions. I have plentiful, glowing references, which I would love to share with you if you’re interested. I look forward to hearing from you!

Warmly,

Laurel

Seeking info for infant care

November 30, 2017

Hello Mamas,

I am due to have my first baby on April 5th, and am looking for a couple things in Portland.  First, I need to hire someone to come 15 hours/week from the beginning-12 weeks to help out at the house.  Then we are looking for a full time 'school' situation once we hit 12 weeks.  I'm on a waiting list at one place, but was hoping you have recommendations for others.  I live in SE (mt. tabor), and that would be our preferred area of care.  

Really appreciate any insight you can offer.  I can be reached at austintxsyd@gmail.com.

Thank you,

Sydney

Seeking part-time working mama interested in doing a childcare swap (N/NE portland)

November 27, 2017

Hello! I am a new mom of a 6 month old baby boy and I work 24 hours a week as an Occupational Therapist. I would LOVE to find another like minded mama who works part time on opposite days and would be interested in a long-term childcare swap situation. Ideally, I'd love to find a family who lives in North or Inner NE Portland, has 1 (maybe 2) young kiddos, and would be able to watch my cutie on T/F and one other weekday (the 3rd day is currently Monday but could be changed). I would watch the kids on the opposite weekdays and could do a weekend day to balance out the swap. Or we could do a nanny share for all the kids for one day a week and just swap 2 days.  I'm up for getting creative! I am very skilled at watching multiples and I would really love for my son to be cared for alongside other kids. Things we value in our family are loving and interactive care, being outdoors, music and other sensory stimulating play that is age appropriate, healthy eating, avoiding technology exposure (no screen-time) and avoiding exposure to strong fragrances/phthalates.  If this post strikes your fancy, please contact me at jessicagbarton@gmail.com. We currently have stable and loving care for our son and will only pursue a swap if we find the right family.

The warm beautiful home environment is created to meet the needs of young children, who are encouraged to move and learn at their own pace, inviting them to explore and build meaning through their experiences. It is through playful exploration that real learning happens, creative thinking evolves, problem solving develops, and true connection and meaning is made.

Weekly visits from the yoga and music specialist promote further exploration, enhancing our curriculum.

Seeking family for Nanny Share, SE Pdx, Beginning Dec/Jan

October 17, 2017

We’re a family with a 23-month-old boy in SE Portland (Creston neighborhood) that is seeking a family to join us in a nanny-share. We have been working with our amazing nanny for almost a year in my transition back to work, and would like to be able to keep working with her, alongside another family, in the coming year.  We’re looking for a family to share three days of care (days are currently flexible, but I’ll need them to be consistent), from about 7:45am-5:30pm, but our nanny is available to provide care on the other two days if you need full-time care.  We can host, but are open to considering your home if it makes sense with our commute to downtown.

Ideally, we’d like to match with a child who can play with our (nearly) 2-year-old and is also on a once/day nap schedule in the afternoon to allow for morning or late afternoon outings to the park, etc.  We highly value a lot of outside time and avoid any screen time. We should note that we also have a loveable Austalian Shepherd who is great with wobblers and toddlers.

If this seems like a possible fit, please email me and we can start a more detailed conversation!

Willow tree fall 2013 128     
 May 25  2017 052      IMG_2079

The Willow Tree Preschool is in its 12th year as a community of learners; we are an eclectic program influenced by the progressive early childhood programs of Reggio Emilia, Italy, developed with over 20 years of experience in early childhood education. We share our gratitude for nature, love of the arts and deep respect for playful inquiry in a multitude of ways. The warm beautiful home environment is created to meet the needs of young children, who are encouraged to move and learn at their own pace, inviting them to explore and build meaning through their experiences. It is through playful exploration that real learning happens, creative thinking evolves, problem solving develops, and true connection and meaning is made.

Weekly visits from the yoga and music specialist promote further exploration, enhancing our curriculum.

The preschool hours are from 9 am to 1 pm for children 3 to 5 years of age.

We would love to meet you and your child, contact the director to set up a tour kim@willowtreepreschool.com

Experienced nanny with master’s degree available for PT or occasional childcare

September 25, 2017

Hi Portland families!

My name is Laurel and I am available for part-time, occasional and/or temporary care. I have been working full-time as a nanny for 2 and a half years and have been providing childcare for nearly 20 years to children of all ages, ranging from newborn to adolescence.

I’ve just launched my own small business providing design and organization services to individuals and families (which is why I can’t commit to another full-time position). The business is all about working together with families to create supportive, enriching environments for children at home (and finding better ways to manage all the toys, gear and paper that kids acquire). If you want to learn more about the services I offer, please check out my website at www.nurturingspacespdx.com.  

A bit more about me: I studied Family Studies and Human Development as an undergrad and Social Work (with a concentration in Children and Families) as a graduate student. I worked with at-risk children and families as a home visiting social worker before moving into the field of early childhood education where I worked as an educator in both a toddler and mixed age preschool classroom.

I believe that children learn through relationships, play and the ability to interact with a variety of materials and environments. I believe in the power of predictable routines, honest and clear communication, and firm and consistent boundaries. I offer children authentic choices and invite their active participation in the day’s routine whenever possible. I value and welcome the full range of children’s feelings while acknowledging that not all behaviors are acceptable. Janet Lansbury is my guru for all child care related questions (she’s got a great website with lots of helpful info).

I'm CPR/First Aid certified, have a driver's license, a clean driving record and a safe car.

I like to spend my free time cooking, exploring the incredible wild spaces of the Pacific Northwest, practicing yoga, scouring secondhand stores and watching adventure films.

I'm reliable, experienced and I feel confident that I can provide respectful, responsive care for your child(ren). Please let me know if you have any questions. I have plentiful, glowing references, which I would love to share with you if you’re interested. I look forward to hearing from you! 

Warmly,

Laurel

Few Fall Spaces Available at The Children's Garden!

September 11, 2017

LOGO

After graduating our entire class of Pre-K students, The Children's Garden has a few rare immediate fall openings! We have LIMITED openings in the following age groups:

Preschool Community: 2.5 yrs - 5 yrs 

*A second preschool program begins in January 2018 - some limited availability 

Older Infants: 10-16 months

The Children's Garden has been operating in Portland since 1988 and is committed to the art of early childhood education. Our talented, educated, and dedicated teaching staff utilizes the most up-to-date brain development research, as well as Attachment Theory, to create incredible learning environments.  We serve students ages 6 weeks to 6 years. 

We believe every child is unique. 

Helping them to discover their special qualities and blossom within their uniqueness is the aim of The Children’s Garden. Beautiful personalities unfold before your eyes when children are embraced with unconditional love and acceptance. A self-confident child with a strong, positive self-image is free to see the wonder of the world around them and to experience the joy of discovery. It is our desire to provide the rich, nurturing soil from which little beings can grow. Our programs follow a developmental approach, allowing us to follow a child’s lead. We feel that the process of learning is as important as the content. Helping children learn how to learn is what our programs are all about.

We believe that parents are the most important people in a child’s life. We at The Children’s Garden would like to join with parents in providing the best for their children.

Our inspired curriculum is heavily emotion-focused, helping children learn to navigate their emotions and respond in an effective and regulated way. We created a Mindfulness curriculum for our Preschool Community: featuring breathing techniques that aid in emotional regulation and the mind-body connection. From infants to kindergarteners, the use of mindfulness is an evidence-based technique aimed at helping children regulate their emotions and practice peaceful problem-solving. Helping children develop an awareness of their internal emotional states helps them to use words instead of fists.

Our convenient downtown location is Secure Education Consultant certified and is a designated "green school".  With a private, covered playground and beautiful classroom spaces, "The Garden" offers excellent early childhood education in an urban setting. 

We offer tours weekly and would love to meet your family! Come and see what makes us one of Portland's most loved child development communities!

The Willow Tree Preschool is in its 12th year as a community of learners; we are an eclectic program influenced by the progressive early childhood programs of Reggio Emilia, Italy developed with over 20 years of experience in early childhood education. We share our gratitude for nature, love of the arts and deep respect for playful inquiry in a multitude of ways. The warm beautiful home environment is created to meet the needs of young children, who are encouraged to move and learn at their own pace, inviting them to explore and build meaning through their experiences. It is through playful exploration that real learning happens, creative thinking evolves, problem solving develops, and true connection and meaning is made.

Weekly visits from the yoga and music specialist promote further exploration, enhancing our curriculum.

The preschool hours are from 9 am to 1 pm for children 3 to 5 years of age.

We would love to meet you and your child, contact the director to set up a tour kim@willowtreepreschool.com
