Waldorf Inspired Teacher Guided Nanny Share/Adventure Group Has Wednesday Morning Openings!

September 30, 2015

Hi There!  

IMG_7071

My name is Sara pronounced (Sahra) and I am a Waldorf inspired teacher with over 17 years of childcare experience with children of all ages. My time with children has taught me how to slow down, find playful moments in every activity, and to stay present, loving, and kind. I have created a sweet little spin off of my former preschool, Sweet River bamboo, that I created and taught at for 3 years in the form of a nanny share. If I were asked to describe in one word the quality of the relationships I cultivate with children, it would be... Magical. There is space available for 1-2 children in my play group on Wednesdays from 9a-1p/3:30p. This nanny share arrangement is ideal for families who want their children to socialize and explore creativity and nature weekly, and who want to gently introduce/or continue offering their child a small group of children to engage with in a warm and loving environment. This childcare group is well established and a high quality group with extremely mindful care and thoughtful parenting.  

Your child will be playing with 2 year old Macy and 4 year old Seamus for the day. We are in Macy's home until 1p and then at Seamus's home after that for nap/rest time. Macy is kind and strong. She loves filling up her back packs for adventures, and playing dress up. Seamus is an energetic tender spirit who loves to build polar bear dens and play chase. Both children love to make art, cuddle, and read books. Our rhythm is filled with playtime, song circles, and craft making that celebrate the seasons and infuse our time together with rich, collaborative activities. There is a lot of silliness and laughter too! If our group size allows, we visit playgrounds and venture out to the local gardens around town. There is a lot of silliness and laughter too! Our days are media free aside from world music that  accompanies our dance jams. I would like to bring our new group together as soon as possible so we can all get to know each other and settle into our rhythm. I have excellent references to share with you so please contact me at 503-432-6414 or saralizadeh@hotmail.com to learn more about this arrangement. Above all, I truly see children as whole beings of love and light, and I deeply enjoy getting to know each and every little one who joins my path and shares their magic with me. Please check out my former preschool's facebook page, Sweet River Bamboo and extended childcare post to get a sense of the quality of care I provide children.

Thank you!

Sara

Experienced Nanny Available

September 16, 2015

My name is Kit and I am a 31 year old nanny, artist, and musician with 13 years of childcare experience. I have cared for children ages 0-13 and specialize in infant and toddler care, though I am very comfortable with all age groups, including twins and multiples, and enjoy spending time with older kiddos too! I am looking for a stable position (a contract for 1 year+ would be ideal) and am available to start immediately. I am currently available from 8am until 2:30 or 4:30pm on Tuesdays (depending on some logistical things—we can discuss further if interested) and anytime after 8am on Thursdays. On MWF I am available from 8am until approximately 2:30pm. I would prefer to work 6-8 hours per day and I am able to offer a sliding scale of $14-17/hour for one child, with my scale increasing from there for two or more. I have a safe and reliable vehicle and drive children several times a week on outings, to camps, and other activities like athletic practices, etc. Preference given to families in NE/NoPo or close-in SE.

 

I am especially excited to work with other GLBTQ families and/or folks who are open to the wonderful diversity of people that exists here in Portland.

 

A bit more about me: I am originally from the Midwest and have nannied in Minneapolis and Baltimore before moving to Portland in 2011. I was a live-in nanny for two years in my early 20s and even went on tour with a punk band as a “road nanny” a few years back. I’ve worked in both a preschool and in-home setting and have knowledge of early childhood development as well as many different child-rearing philosophies. I use this knowledge and experience to create a safe, happy, fun, and nurturing environment for growing children to learn and explore. I am also available to help with sleep training and other challenges that may come up! I also have infant CPR and first-aid training.

 

I am available for occasional babysitting as well—please feel free to get in touch if that is of interest!

 

I have an extensive resume and several excellent references that I would be happy to forward if it seems like it could be a good fit. email: leahkitkogan @ gmail dot com

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

WEVILLAGE OPENS FOURTH FLEXIBLE CHILDCARE LOCATION IN NORTHEAST PORTLAND

Portland, Or.  WeVillage founder Karen Beninati opened her innovative, flexible childcare facility at Northeast 19th and Broadway. The beautiful, 2,000 square foot space is designed as a unique play and learning area with a custom built play structure emulating some of the surrounding homes in the neighborhood, a preschool area, and a separate area for the infants and toddlers to explore.

The Northeast Broadway location was created by Beninati and a team of experts from Andersen Construction, the company that also designed and constructed Ibarre, WeVillage’s neighbor next door.  The vision was to use materials leftover from various larger commercial projects done by Andersen Construction.  The result, 96 per cent of the materials is reclaimed from existing wood saved from the original space.  The ceiling is a reclaimed concrete shoring form.  “We used LOW VOC adhesives, the panels are reclaimed from a high-tech industry project, the doors and windows were left over from some of Andersen’s larger commercial jobs”, said Beninati.  “Our mission of providing exceptional flexible childcare spaces that are beautifully designed for discerning parents has been achieved and we’re very excited to show our concept off in our newest location,” she added.

A special grand opening celebration will be held SEPT 24TH 4-9pm BIG PARTY! with BOUNCE HOUSE, FOOD,COCKTAILS AND FACE PAINTING,  ICE CREAM BAR!

IBARRE IS ALSO CELEBRATING 1 YEAR IN BUSINESS

 

“We also look forward to many events, birthday parties, and celebrations creating special memories with our WeVillage families at each of our WeVillage locations in the Pearl, Orenco Station (Hillsboro), Happy Valley Town Center and our newest here on Northeast Broadway,” she added.

Willow Tree Preschool has space for fall

August 28, 2015

 

October 23, 2014 001

The Willow Tree Preschool is in its 10th 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. Blending a respect for nature, with a focus on art, in a warm beautiful home environment created to meet the needs of the young child. Children 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.

Experienced Nanny Available

My name is Kit and I am a 31 year old queer nanny, artist, and student with 13 years of childcare experience. I have cared for children ages 0-13 and specialize in infant and toddler care, though I am very comfortable with all age groups and enjoy spending time with older kiddos too! I am looking for a temporary but stable position that will end (or reduce hours) when my Fall term starts at PSU towards the last week of September. I am currently available until 4:30pm on Tuesdays and anytime on Thursday and Friday until the end of August and then my availability on Fridays will change to mornings until 2pm when my current childcare position switches back to the school year schedule. Tues and Thurs will remain the same until my term starts. I would prefer to work 6-8 hours per day and I am able to offer a sliding scale of $14-17/hour for one child, with my scale increasing from there for two or more. I have a safe and reliable vehicle and drive children several times a week on outings, to camps, and other activities like athletic practices, etc. Preference given to families in NE/NoPo or close-in SE.

I am especially excited to work with other GLBTQ families and/or folks who are open to the wonderful diversity of people that exists here in Portland.

A bit more about me: I am originally from the Midwest and have nannied in Minneapolis and Baltimore before moving to Portland in 2011. I was a live-in nanny for two years in my early 20s and even went on tour with a punk band as a “road nanny” a few years back. I’ve worked in both a preschool and in-home setting and have knowledge of early childhood development as well as many different child-rearing philosophies. I use this knowledge and experience to create a safe, happy, fun, and nurturing environment for growing children to learn and explore. I am also available to help with sleep training and other challenges that may come up!

I am available for occasional babysitting as well—please feel free to get in touch if that is of interest!

I have an extensive resume and several excellent references that I would be happy to forward if it seems like it could be a good fit. email: leahkitkogan @ gmail dot com

PT SPANISH TODDLER PLAYGROUP/ PRESCHOOL LIGHT (INNER SE/NE)

August 02, 2015

We are looking for a few more toddlers to join our Spanish home-based toddler playgroup. The wonderful teacher is a native Spanish speaker who has been running the same ‘escuela’ for the last seven years.

The playgroup provides the kids significant Spanish exposure with a play-based focus. As some of the older kids are moving on to formal preschools and we do not want to lose the fantastic teacher and this great resource, we are on the lookout for new families to join us (otherwise the group will not be continuing after August). 

The ‘escuela’ meets from 9:30 to 12:30 Wednesday and Friday mornings. There will be at least four, but no more than five, kids aged between 1.5 and 3 years old. The teacher speaks to the children almost exclusively in Spanish. Their day consists of outdoor play, arts and crafts, music and dancing, and parent packed snack and lunch times.  The weekly cost per child is $40. We are still trying to determine which family’s home the group would be located beginning in September but the existing two families live in Hollywood and Mt Tabor/Hawthorne.

Please email Sarah for more information at Sarah.Figliozzi@gmail.com.  We look forward to meeting interested families.

Our daily routine involves a multitude of authentic, open ended materials, engaging art, nature, and music activities, and healthy organic snacks.

At Little Imprints, we believe in instilling a love of learning, play, and exploration to the children in our care.
