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!

Green Tulip Peace & Nature School Fall 2017 Open House!!

June 26, 2017

 ~ Portland's Only Free~Flowing School!
 
Who We Are:
The Green Tulip Peace and Nature School believes that children need independence and autonomy. We know that preschoolers are capable of making decisions that will impact how they learn and approach education in the future. 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. 


For more information or to RSVP to our open house, please email us at Greentulippreschool@gmail.com or visit our website at www.greentulipschool.com
 
Thank you and may you have a day filled with peace and joy!
 
 

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

es.whrit@gmail.com

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!

Childcare Openings

June 06, 2017

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 5 full time children (ages 4 months, 7 months, 2 years, a 2 and a half 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 2 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!

ALSO, I’ll be having openings for ages 2 and up over the summer months(June-September).

DSC_5372

Need summer coverage? ChildRoots NW has openings!

At ChildRoots, we believe that children are capable and strong. They deserve beautiful spaces, high-quality materials, and curriculum that is built upon their interests. They deserve to be listened to and respected — their ideas are powerful. They deserve organic, whole foods; and spaces to run, jump, skip, and yell. They deserve a community that nurtures social and emotional intelligence and introduces letters and numbers. They deserve teachers that enliven their natural curiosity and foster a lifelong love of learning. We’re inspired by busy brains, running feet, and muddy puddles to stomp in. We ask questions, and respect each child’s innate curiosity. We look closer.

Our preschool program is influenced by the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. We believe that children are powerful, independent, and capable; and our program is designed to nurture these traits to build empowered, confident thinkers, dreamers, and tinkerers.

  • We’re committed to building community. Multiple school-wide and class events throughout the year bring us together for celebration, conversation, and shared experiences.
  • Our daily summer camp program offers children the chance to explore a variety of topics in small groups. See a sample atelier term schedule below.
  • On-site art studio offers each child the chance to experiment with a variety of different media, including sculpture, collage, printmaking, and textiles.

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

ChildRoots has Preschool Availability - Now and for Fall!

April 26, 2017

Julyparent

At ChildRoots, we believe that children are capable and strong. They deserve beautiful spaces, high-quality materials, and curriculum that is built upon their interests. They deserve to be listened to and respected — their ideas are powerful. They deserve organic, whole foods; and spaces to run, jump, skip, and yell. They deserve a community that nurtures social and emotional intelligence and introduces letters and numbers. They deserve teachers that enliven their natural curiosity and foster a lifelong love of learning. We’re inspired by busy brains, running feet, and muddy puddles to stomp in. We ask questions, and respect each child’s innate curiosity. We look closer.

Our preschool program is influenced by the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. We believe that children are powerful, independent, and capable; and our program is designed to nurture these traits to build empowered, confident thinkers, dreamers, and tinkerers.

  • We’re committed to building community. Multiple school-wide and class events throughout the year bring us together for celebration, conversation, and shared experiences.
  • Our daily atelier program offers children the chance to explore a variety of topics in small groups. See a sample atelier term schedule below.
  • On-site art studio offers each child the chance to experiment with a variety of different media, including sculpture, collage, printmaking, and textiles.

ATELIER SCHEDULE: Motion

Week 1: Woodshop
Week 2: Horticulture
Week 3: Movement
Week 4: Animation
Week 5: Locomotives
Week 6: Chemistry
Week 7: Advanced Filmmaking
Week 8: Water Science

ChildRoots has three locations in the heart of Portland, and we currently have just a few openings for toddlers and preschoolers at our Northwest location. Interested in learning more? Check out our website, give our enrollment office a call at (503) 235-1151, or shoot us an email. We can't wait to get in touch.
