I have a small (3-4) group of wonderful toddlers I care for in my SE Portland home (near Division and 30th). I have an immediate opening for Tuesdays, and full-time spots opening in the summer. Hours are 8am - 5pm, with earlier and later hours available by prior arrangement. We eat healthy and delicious organic meals, enjoy daily time in the fresh air, and laugh a lot. Daily activities include painting and drawing, several story times with books and songs, dance parties with balloons and scarves, bubble chasing, exploring music, walks to Piccolo Park, and free play. I keep the group small so that I can give plenty of individual attention, encouragement, and reassurance they still so need at this age.
I have a degree in Social Work, am trained in infant and child first aid and CPR, and am a mature mother of a sweet, goofy 2-year old (who is part of our group). I am heavily influenced by Montessori philosophy, by which I mean that I focus on independence in children and create a child-based, beautiful and calm environment. My rate is $70/day, which includes all meals and snacks. Please email with any questions. I look forward to chatting with you! Mercy Pozgay (email@example.com)
