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!

Let Them Learn, Laugh, and be Loved at ChildRoots

RTJuly  DSC_0109

 

We believe in early learning experiences that inspire wonder, invite creativity, and nurture the whole child. Whether children are sharing a quiet story with a beloved teacher, scaling the top of the rock wall on our play yard, creating a masterpiece in our art studio, or learning about physics hands-on in our atelier program; our schools aim to provide a warm, loving, and safe space to grow, play, and learn. 

Inspired by the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, our teachers act as co-learners. We observe and document each child's interests, ask questions that provoke thought and experimentation, and design learning experiences that inspire wonder. 

Our schools feature large outdoor play spaces, beautiful classrooms with colors and materials inspired by the natural world, organic and vegetarian meals prepared by our on-site chef, and reusable cloth diapers. 

ChildRoots has 3 locations in the heart of Portland, and we currently have summer and fall availability for preschoolers at our Southeast school

Take a look at our website to learn more, and we'd be more than happy to talk with you about our wonderful program.

Seeking part-time caregiver for our 10.5 month old starting Sept 5

July 12, 2017

My husband is starting the Montessori elementary training course on September 6 and I work remotely for a non-profit. We need someone to take care of our baby daughter for 12-15 hours a week starting the last week of August or first week of September. Kaia will be 10 ½ months by then. She's playful and fun-loving!

We're seeking a nurturing, compassionate, eco/health-conscious caregiver. Ideally, we’d like someone to come to our home in SE PDX (Buckman neighborhood) from 8:30 to 11:30am Mondays through Thursday for a "work cycle." From here you can go on walks, play in the community garden, or stay at home and play, read, sing, dance, do artsy crafts, etc. Hours/days are somewhat flexible, but we'd like to keep it as consistent as possible for Kaia's sake. We’re also open to childcare shares as well, whether here or somewhere else.

Familiarity with Montessori-inspired approach and/or fluency in a second language a plus. 

Please contact me at erin.hannum108@gmail.com or 509 221 9319.

Childcare Openings

Hi all! My name is Charlene Adams and I'm an in home childcare provider in North Portland. I'm located between Morgan St. and Buffalo St. I've been doing childcare out of my home for about 8 years now, but before this, I was a childcare teacher at Legacy Emanuel's Childcare center. I worked there for a little over 21 years, but after they closed down due to lack of funding, I was forced to find another job. Inhome childcare has been a perfect fit! I'm a licensed childcare provider and I have my food handler's card, my recognizing child abuse certification, CPR, first aid, and an approved background check. In my care, we have a set schedule which consists of sign language lessons, learning their ABC's and numbers, story time, and a daily walk (if the weather is nice). Meals are provided. My hours are 7:30 am - 5:30 pm Monday -Friday. Currently, I have 3 full time children (an 8 month old, a 2 year old, and a 3 year old). I like to keep my group small by not going over 6 kids. I have 3 openings for ages 15 months and up. If you'd like more information, you can shoot me an email at adamscharlene1965@yahoo.com OR you can give me a call at (503) 891-6838. Thanks! I hope to hear from you!

We are a school that focuses less on academic achievements and more on whole self-development. We understand that nature and the outdoors are essential components to a happy, fulfilling childhood and are the foundation for self-awareness and self-esteem. We have seen first-hand the benefits of our work and have had great success in transforming how our children experience learning. The free flow environment has proven extremely effective in reducing stress and anxiety in children, especially children who fall on the Autism spectrum, struggle with social or general Anxiety, and children with ADHD. 
 
Our indoor/outdoor classrooms are carefully designed to provide a peaceful and safe learning space which allows the children freedom to explore knowing that their needs will be met. By doing so, our environment transforms to one less about classroom management and more about facilitating ideas and fostering creativity. It is a form play therapy that allows the children to learn at their own pace and work through challenges naturally, and over the years we’ve received numerous referrals by occupational therapists who saw the benefits of our work.
Our hope is to build connections, encourage awareness, and model acceptance.
 
We look forward to many happy years of working together and watching our children grow.
 
Philosophy & Approach:
Holistic education is based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to spiritual values such as compassion and peace. Holistic education aims to call forth from people an intrinsic reverence for life and a passionate love of learning. This is done, not through an academic “curriculum” that condenses the world into instructional packages, but through direct engagement with the environment. Holistic education nurtures a sense of wonder.
 
What your child will experience at the Green Tulip:
The natural world as their classroom. Our outdoor classroom is set to accommodate most weather so children can be free to move about and learn in the environment the meets their needs.The outdoors is always accessible for learning, exploring, playing, or tending to our plants and animals. 
 
An outdoor classroom full of opportunities to learn including but not limited to an outdoor art station, library, sandbox, fairy garden, chicken coop, a dig pit, garden, climbing structures and more!
 
 A positive happy environment where curiosity is encouraged and nurtured.
 
 We naturally will introduce your child to delicious and nutritious foods. We serve organic, locally grown and sometimes even fruits and vegetables we grew ourselves. We believe that CLEAN preservative-free food is an essential for wellness, and cook from scratch whenever possible. 
    
Life Skills- Cooperation, relationship building, and working through emotions.
 
 A Sense of  Community
 
Independent and Free Play
 
 A Culture of  Peace; We will model and discuss peace often and will work very hard to spread it around.
 
Our goal is to create an environment that intrigues but does not overwhelm or over-stimulate the children. We offer an environment that is safe, healthy, comforting and free from chemicals.

Experienced, Respectful Nanny Available!

Hello! I am an experienced nanny searching for a new position, beginning this month! I am looking for a contract lasting June through sometime in November when I am due with my own little one.  I have worked as a fulltime professional nanny since June 2013, and my partner and I just moved to Portland from Seattle this month.  While I am sad to have left all of my beloved nanny families in Seattle, I am excited to connect with some wonderful Portland families!

My childcare philosophy draws from RIE, Montessori, and attachment/gentle parenting. I've primarily worked with toddlers and infants, and I am continually amazed by their curiosity, compassion, intelligence, and energetic awareness. I believe in treating children with respect, honoring their innate wisdom, and doing my own internal work so that I can be the most compassionate and loving caregiver possible. I m a big believer in natural and unassisted motor development, supporting independent play, teaching consent early, giving children the space to figure things out on their own (you won t see me demonstrating how to use a toy!), involving even young children in daily tasks around the house such as cooking and cleaning, and holding supportive emotional containers for big toddler emotions. I am familiar with Montessori philosophies, Waldorf pedagogy, RIE tenants, baby led weaning, babywearing, cloth diapering, elimination communication, gentle sleep training, co-sleeping, extended breastfeeding, and alternative pediatric medicine. I also work as a birth and postpartum doula, although I am not taking birth clients at this time. 

I look forward to hearing from you!

Warmly, 

Esmé

P.S. I would like to stay in Portland proper during this time! 

Seeking PT Nanny or nanny-share for 18 month old, SE PDX, starting in July

June 20, 2017

Looking for a part time nanny or preferably nanny share situation in SE Portland. We live in South Tabor at 77th Ave and Clinton. We could host a share at our house which has a big fenced yard and lots of space and light, BUT since i will be working from home, doing it at the other home would be easier. Ideally we'd like child care for 3 days a week from 8:30ish -5ish, tuesdau, wed, thurs. Days of the week are flexible but would ideally be consistent.

Our son Raymond is 18 months old and a similarly aged child would be ideal for playing/learning. He is a typical smiley little tyke. Loves having books read to him and roving around the yard and the park. We avoid screen time for him. He has no allergies and eats like a champ. We would consider a private nanny if we can't find a share but Ray would like being around another kid. He naps from about 12:30-3 right now and naps best in a quiet, dark space, so that would have to be worked out with the other kid/s.

If this sounds like a match for anyone, please email me and we can exchange phone numbers. Thank you!
