WeVillage NEW location OPEN NOW!

August 31, 2015

New location  006

 

 

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.

FT Loving, Patient, Reliable Nanny Available 3/23

March 16, 2015

 

Hello Portland Families! 

 My name is Alaina and I am 27 year old, Portland native, who's hoping to find a full time nanny position. I am available M-F and hoping to work at least 30 hours per week, 35 would be a plus but not required. I am available to start as early as March 23rd. My most current job was working at a Pre-school/Daycare called West Hills Learning Center, in Multnomah Village. I started out as the Assistant Teacher in the Pre-K classroom, when I decided to start looking for a nanny job I moved to part time as a floater, which had me working in all of the classrooms 8 months- 5 years old. West Hills was a great place to work, and I learned so much there, with all of the different ages, to teaching styles, and large number of children in each class, I really soaked up as much knowledge as I could to help me in my future child care positions. With that said, I have realized I thrive more in a smaller group setting. I like the intimacy and attention you are able to give each child. I like growing close with the families, and having the time to be able to give updates to the parents about how the day went, and what new fun things we did during the day. 

 In the past I have worked for the Beaverton School District as a Substitute Teacher's Assistant, I worked in mostly special ed classrooms, and children with behavioral issues, ranging for K-12, I have worked in after school art programs, and I have been a Nanny to multiple families, which I have grown to have great relationships with. Kids age ranging from 3 months-8 years old. Of course I have babysat throughout every job I have had starting at a very early age. With all my past experience I have always gone back to wanting to be a Nanny, I believe it truly is my passion to care for children, and there is no greater feeling then leaving a days work actually feeling like you have made a difference in someones life. 

 A little about me, and my teaching style. Like I said before, I have grown up in the Portland metro area my whole life, I love Oregon and all if has to offer. Like most Oregonians, I love the lifestyle we are able to have by living here, beautiful day hikes, weekend trips to the Oregon Coast and the Mountain, trying a new awesome restaurant each weekend, eating locally and as healthy as possible. Its very important for me to be active, and healthy, and that is definitely incorporated in when I am watching children. I like to have the kids help me cook, get them involved and show them what its like to eat from the garden, daily walks, and exploring all nature has to offer. Rain or shine, I need to go outside everyday! I very much believe a child's imagination is the most important thing to exercise and discover. Letting the child know they are loved and cared for on a daily basis, making sure they are comfortable and knowing you are there for them with all of their questions and concerns, helping them when they need help, but also letting them try new things on their own, and learning together is the most important thing I can provide as a Nanny and caregiver. 

 As a Nanny, I would make sure each day we would go outside, hopefully incorporate arts and crafts on a daily basis (because I love art projects as much as the kids do!) read books, prepare healthy snacks, listen and dance to music, explore new parks, and honestly just try to learn and play as much as we can, and have a great time doing it! 

 I have a 2002 Subaru Outback, which is a very safe and reliable car. I have had my license since I was 16, with an amazing driving record. I recently renewed my First Aid/CPR training in January, and am enrolled in the Criminal Background Check. Thank I am comfortable with pets, and don't mind walking the dog. I am comfortable with meal prep, light house keeping, and running errands. I don't smoke. 

 Even though I myself am not a mother yet, I can imagine trying to find the right Nanny for your family to be a very hard process. I don't blame the family for wanting to maybe have a lengthy hiring process, or wanting to do a trial run to see if you are a right fit before hiring, and to me that makes so much sense. You can't be too sure when you know this person is going to be watching your children. So with that said, I am available for contact through e-mail or phone. If you're interested I can send my Resume which gives in greater detail my childcare experience, we can chat on the phone before meeting to see if we would be a good fit for each other! 

 Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, I am a very caring, reliable, patient, and open minded person, I look at being a Nanny as a career, and not just a job to have until I find something better. I am very excited to find the next family to work with. Thanks again, and I hope to hear from you! 

Sincerely, Photo

M-F Nanny with T-Th share available

August 20, 2014

I am a nanny whose current full time family will be moving away in late August. I will miss them but am also looking forward to building a relationship with a new family.  I currently work for them M-Th and we do a share on T-Th with a delightfully verbal 2.5 yr old girl who I've been caring for since she was 6 mo old. I would like to maintain that relationship if possible. We're located in the Irvington area but open to NE and close in SE,  NW and SW on/near a bus or max line.I'm looking for a family who ideally needs care Mon-Thur and is open to a share on T-Th for a total of around ~30-35 hours a week +/-. I am also open to odd hours and overnights if that is what your schedule requires.

I am college educated and CPR trained and have several years experience caring for newborns through age 10. I am reliable, punctual and self-motivated. I do not have a car, so please be comfortable with us getting around by bus, bike or foot. I like to take the kids outside for an outing most days as long as the weather isn't completely heinous. We like to go to do all the usual outings and we also like to paint and do crafts as well as read and play. I am open to starting as early as Aug 18, or as late as Oct 20ish. Caveat:I have an overseas trip planned for Oct 9-18, so I'm open to temp jobs through Sept if I can't find a long term arrangement that can accomodate the trip. I am comfortable with newborns and big families. I would also be open to a rent exchange if you have a basement/attic room or studio apartment you want to rent. If you would like to talk with me further, I can be reached at greatportlandnanny@hotmail.com.

Thanks!

Sara

Visting Portland: Need Temporary Childcare for 8 Year Old

June 12, 2011

Hey All!

We are visiting Portland with our 8yr old from June 20th to June 28th and would like to have sometime to explore Portland kidless.  We are looking at moving from Austin, Texas to Portland in the next few months but wanted our son to see the city before me made the decision official.  Our schedule is flexible and we have rented a condo on the waterfront/Pearl district.  We are envisioning a couple of nights for us to have dinner and hang out, while a cool-fun-responsible person (with references) hangs out at our condo with the little guy.  Pay $10 to $15 per hour DOE.

If interested, please email your resume or information about yourself and your childcare experience and 3 references to jclaustin@gmail.com

Great Nanny Available

April 29, 2011

Hi Mamas, My name is Sara and I am a great nanny with strong references looking for a new family to work with starting any time (sooner than later.) I am also happy to accommodate a nanny share. 

I have experience with infants, toddlers and preschoolers and like to get the kids out for outings daily. We like to do the usual suspects such as OMSI, Zoo, Children's Museum, library, parks etc. and also look for less common things such as botanical gardens, Audubon Society, CHAP Art Factory, paint your own pottery places, preschool swim time, skating, etc. We also like to do some crafts, cooking projects, grow vegetables from seed and free play at home. I am happy to attend various classes with your child, and also have experience with infant and toddler potty training. 

I am very patient, handle stress well, and consider myself generally easy going. I am also VERY reliable and punctual  
. I am CPR certified and college educated. I am happy to assist with light housekeeping, meal prep, errands, light yard work and of course cleanup and laundry related to the kids. I grew up with dogs and as an adult have a cat so I am pet friendly as well. 

My ideal family/families will have excellent communication skills, dependability (will follow through with what you say you will do,) not be averse to public transit/biking, and have a generally happy demeanor. My not-that-old car isn't currently running but I am happy to bus, bike, walk, pull a wagon or drive your car with a willingness to use my zip car account on an occasional basis if needed.  I live in SE (on the 10, 14, 72 and near the 19 bus lines) and would LOVE to work with a family who also lives in SE.

Ideally I am looking for full time, but will consider 20-25 hrs as long as they are guaranteed 52 weeks a year and are scheduled in such a way that I could take on another part time job without too much difficulty. I am looking for a long term year round commitment of at least one year if possible. My rates start at $12/hr or $7/hr per family if a share. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you think we may be a good fit. (I also do date night and weekend care as well.)

Great Nanny Available

January 08, 2011

Hi Mamas! I'm a great nanny looking for a new full time family to work for on a long term basis. I have experience with infants through school age, though my most relevant experience is infant through preschool age.

I love to get out and about regularly while maintaining a lunch/nap schedule as well. Some outings I like to do include the usual suspects...OMSI, Zoo, Children's Museum, and library as well as Oaks Park, CHAP Art Factory, 100th Monkey, PlaydatePDX, Audubon Society, Leach Botanical Gardens etc. I also like to do cooking/baking projects, crafts, an occasional movie or Sesame Street day (particularly if a kiddo is sick or has been on the go an unusual amount and needs a mellow day and the weather is particularly bad,) stories, play at home, playdates, classes and camps etc. I like to try and get out every day if possible even if it's just an hour or two.

I am not a neat freak, but I will do my best to leave your house as clean or cleaner than when you left. I always clean up after myself and the kids (but that doesn't mean I've never missed some schmutz on the floor or counter.) I am happy to help with light housekeeping, the kids laundry (but please don't sneak your dirty socks and underwear into the kids laundry basket, :)) errands,  meal prep etc.  Your kids are my first priority, and when time permits, I will try to do things to help make your life easier!

I am college educated and CPR certified. I am punctual and very reliable. I am also open to a nanny share situation. Willing to work non-traditional hours (including overnights) but am looking for a minimum of 32 hrs. I have a car and am flexible about location. I am also willing to travel with you, but would need enough notice to make arrangements for my pets. 

I am looking to work for honest parents who value the work a nanny does and who support the unique relationship a nanny has with their child.  I want to work for parents who follow through with what they say they will do, are good communicators and generally happy people.

I have great references who are happy to talk with you. If you think we might be a match, send me an email at gr8pdxnanny@yahoo.com

Thanks!

Awesome Nanny/Sitter Available!!!!!

December 29, 2010

Awesome Nanny/Sitter Available!!!!

I am 26 years old and have been a full-time nanny for the last 6 years, and have been babysitting for more than 13 years. I have experience with children ages 4 mo. to 10 years old. I also have experience volunteering in a daycare for homeless families, tutoring pre-schoolers with Junior Kumon, and working with at-risk teenagers in Oregon Youth Conservation Core. I have been a volunteer at Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Pediatric Acute Care and the Hematology-Oncology Clinic for the past year.

I have a tight-knit network of moms and nannies that I regularly arrange play dates with, and I am very familiar with library story times, baby gyms, indoor gyms, kid-friendly cafes, Music Together, etc. I love outings to OMSI, Children's Museum, Oregon Zoo, Children's Healing Art Project as well as kid-friendly hikes at Laurelhurst Park and Forest Park. Outings have also included day-trips to State Parks, as well as tide-pool exploration at the beach! I have a strong background in Drawing and Photography and I love doing LOTS of art projects... I speak Korean, a little bit of Spanish, and have experience with baby sign-language.

My style is adaptive towards each child, because each child has his/her own special interests, personality and talents. I like to encourage spending as much time outdoors as possible, hone creative abilities as well as kids' imaginations, and try to laugh as much as humanly possible :)

My educational experience includes courses in Family Studies, Child Psychology, Human Development and Teaching in International Schools. I have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Liberal Studies and a minor in Black Studies. I am currently applying for nursing programs.

I have an Oregon driver's license and my own vehicle. I am CPR/First Aid certified, including infant CPR, and have my Oregon CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) license.

Right now, I am working as a caregiver for a quadriplegic man in the mornings, and am looking for some supplemental work while I apply for nursing programs. I usually work in the mornings until 12:30pm at the latest, with availability in the afternoons, evenings and weekends. I am open to a regular schedule, as well as tutoring and babysitting. I charge $12/hr, but my rate is flexible and also depends on the number of children.

If you are interested, please contact me for full resume and a list of excellent references. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!!!

Seeking fun, loving, individual to help start daycare/preschool

July 28, 2010

Hello my name is Wendy and I am a professional caregiver. I have over 10 years of experience working with children. First with family members (including a step son), and then for other people's. I am a very warm and compassionate individual that feels very comfortable and competent caring for children. 

It has always been a dream of mine to start my own daycare/preschool. I am looking for an individual that has the space to start this venture or who has the means to rent a space. I am also looking for someone who is laid back, similar minded, and around the same age. I would like to be licensed so you would need to be or able to be registered with the Oregon Criminal History, be CPR/First Aid Certified, have a food handlers, and take or have taken the RCAN (Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect) class. I have worked in a daycare so I have already meet these requirements. If you are interested please contact me at the above e-mail and we can set up a time to meet. 

Thank you, 
Wendy 

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!

organic, montessori-influenced regular or dropin care available

April 21, 2010

I am a Stay-At-Home-Mama (SAHM) to 3 beautiful children, ranging in age from infant to elementary school, and I also have over 20 years of experience in childcare, education, and enrichment.  All of my experience has taught me many things, amongst them:

~there is more than one way to learn, and every child deserves the best way for THEM

~"learning" does NOT mean you have to have every second of every day PLANNED- you find opportunities in children's natural curiosity

~it really DOES take a village to raise a child, so consistency and collaboration are important - for parent AND child

~you don't have to be rich to deserve top-notch care for your child

If you agree with these things, and would like your child in a montessori and waldorf - influenced environment, where the child is king (or queen), nutritional and delicious foods (allergies considered, of course!) abound, and all parenting styles and religious or spiritual beliefs are respected, please feel free to contact me. Our family utilizes attachment parenting, connected (unconditional) parenting, and NVC (non-violent communication), and eats mostly organic foods. Gluten-free diet available as well!

I may be able to accept DHS payment too, just ask! I am flexible on hours, rates, and would be willing to watch the children in my home (on the North Side of Mount Tabor/ Montavilla, near 82nd and Burnside) or yours, depending on the hours and specifics. I do not currently drive, though my husband does, so pickup and dropoff may be possible, as well as overnights, tutoring, laundry, cleaning help, etc. I welcome your family into our tribe.
