Creative and loving childcare!

August 23, 2011


I am 25 year old college graduate and freelance photographer/musican/artist/jewelry/ maker who loves children! Most of my childcare experience comes from working for friends and family and in my hometown Mankato, Minnesota and photographing children of all ages at a local Portrait studio in Portland.  My area of work allows me to have a very open schedule with a few photo gigs on the weekends. I am very flexable and am open to working anywhere from five to forty hours per week! I love to teach children about expression through art, reading, free play, music, dance, and even goofing-off! I am reliable, always on time, and enjoy cleaning, cooking, and enjoy engaging with children. I've held various positions that relate to childcare in one way or another, including; eco friendly house cleaning, planning and leading activities at an assisted living home, as a sales associate at a toy store, and cooking in a non-profit kitchen. My rate is $10/hr with $2 for each additional child,  and references are available upon request. I currently live in NE Portland and prefer to work in Portland. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I am looking forward to hearing from you and your family!

Exuberant, creative, voyaging PDX urban Nanny looking for p/t summer work.

June 25, 2010

My name is Mariia, and I'm an experienced nanny looking for some part time work in the Portland area.
I have 8 years experience working with various age groups, one-on-one, as well as classroom settings.

I have all the necessary certifications for childcare, including infant CPR and first aid training.

I have a station wagon perfect for carting around kids and equipment necessary for summer fun.

I also bike and am familiar with Portland bike ways and Portland Metro, all great means for exploring.

I'm an excellent cook (including vegetarian/vegan), and would be happy to do light house keeping. If you have cats and dogs, I'm pet friendly.

I enjoy the outdoors, creative projects, music, and cooking. I look forward to connecting with the right family, and hope to hear from you!
