Hummingbird School is a space where children are encouraged to explore, interact, create, imagine and express themselves. The program is designed to allow students to discover the world through play in an environment that is unhurried, loving and secure. Our approach is child-led rather than teacher-directed. Through free play and open ended art activities, children challenge themselves to work on the skills they need to learn and develop. A focus on play and creativity also allows preschoolers many opportunities to interact with peers and practice emerging skills such as empathy, flexibility, problem solving and negotiating.

Merry Montessori is a four year-old home Montessori program in Southeast Portland that specializes in low impact, eco-conscious infant, toddler, and primary programs that support the whole child. Our trained guides connect children with themselves, their peers and their world by helping them gain skills in independence, socialization and focus.
We currently have a full infant toddler program and are excited about opening our new Primary Program in fall 2013 for ten children ages 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 and 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 (with previous Montessori experience). Our new Primary Program will offer a Spanish-English language curriculum and experience, as we believe opening up children's language options opens up their world.

Hi there. We are looking for a PT Nanny for our 2 little girls, ages 5 and almost 3. Those with the ability to play dinosaurs and barbies, color, paint nails, and read the same book multiple times are strongly encouraged to apply :) Fine Print: We are also looking for someone who is mature, responsible, has previous childcare experience with similar ages, safe car and clean driving record, and CPR certified.
We are a professional couple and I work as a graphic designer on a freelance basis. Hours we definitely need are: Wed afternoons (12:45-4) and Fri mornings (9:30-1:30). If you have additional availability, that would be great as I frequently have a need for more hours as my workload fluctuates.
We live just up the hill from the NW 23rd area, right next to a great community center with a large park, playground and preschool. Our girls attend school there and you will need to pickup (on foot) on one day. Our girls also love to go to the zoo, children's museum, etc.
We are also looking for someone who is comfortable pitching in around the house (unloading dishwasher, folding clothes) as time allows. And we have a very slow, but sweet 13 year old lab who occassionaly likes to walk across the street to the park with the girls.
Please contact me if you might be interested.
Thanks so much!

OPEN HOUSE Thursday January 31st, 6:00-8:00 pm
Montessori Children's House offers both Toddler and Primary Montessori programs. We are located in a dynamic and diverse new Portland neighborhood, the South Waterfront, adjacent to a lovely park and the Willamette River Greenway.
'We toured a total of six schools before we found the right one for our daughter. We even enrolled her in another one prior to Montessori Children's House only to pull her out because we were disappointed in our experience there. I wish that we had discovered this school sooner! It would have saved us a lot of stress.'
'The space itself is gorgeous, all new, beautiful learning areas, just what you would imagine a top notch Montessori school to look like...The location on South Waterfront is very easy to get to and from, parking is right in front of the main door and the teachers will even greet the kids at your car. We highly recommend Montessori Children’s House!'

We moved to Portland recently for my husband's job, and there must be something in the water, because we're already expecting our first child - a baby boy - in June 2013!
As per instructions from almost everyone I know, we're already starting to look into infant care options for when I go back to work full time in September 2013. We've gotten a few recommendations from my still measly social networks here but mainly we're relying on internet research which seems to be turning up the same few options: ChildRoots, Creative Minds, Grandma's Place, Belmont Academy, CCLC, the OHSU CCLC (we're looking in/near SE). Or find a nanny.
I figure this can't be all that's out there or 90% of the babies in SE Portland wouldn't have a place to go. My prenatal yoga instructor says many places just don't have websites. Does anyone have ideas - specific places or lists of places? A nanny or nanny share would also be an option. I work from home and have a fairly flexible schedule, so I don't necessarily need a full-time, 9-6 deal. On the other hand I've been told not to expect to get any work done if I'm home with the baby, even if there's a nanny there too. And I do travel for work from time to time, and my husband has VERY long and VERY inflexible hours (he's a resident at OHSU).
Would love to hear from anyone with experience or ideas! Places you or your friends have sent your babies, lists you've received, other networks you think I should tap into? Mamas who work from home, any creative ways you've made it work? Nanny+coworking space? Would love to hear any and all input!
Thanks SO much,

The Earth Tortoise Montessori School is an intimate community of 3 month
to 3 year old children, their families, and their teachers, nestled on a quiet tree
lined cul de sac.
We see these first three years as a time for free exploration and developing a sense of self.
Infants are just learning about their own bodies and developing the abilities they will need for all later learning. Toddlers are coming into their own. They are learning their place in the world, developing and refining their skills, and asserting their independence.
The classroom is the children's space - child-sized, beautiful, and completely accessible to their need for doing things on their own. It is a peaceful place that gives them the chance to choose
what they want to work on within a routine that is predictable and limits that help them feel secure. Learning develops the whole child - physically, cognitively, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. There are no "right" answers but only more exciting questions. And we love to share their enthusiasm with them in an attitude of acceptance, patience, and love.
Community is very important to us. We hope to create a place for families that feels like an extension of their home, a network of support that begins during pregnancy and extends out until your child is ready to move out into the larger world.
We currently have a child graduating in to a preschool program, making an
infant space available beginning in FEbruary. If you are interested in learning
more, please visit our website - www.theearthtortoiseschool.com. To schedule a tour please contact us at either (503) 257-4783 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
