Seeking P/T Nanny or Nanny Share with Another Family in SE/Mt Tabor

March 26, 2015

Hello! We're looking for a wonderful, loving nanny for our 6-month old son. We are also open to a nanny share with another family who lives nearby (within easy walking distance).  We live in Mt. Tabor near 50th/Hawthorne. We're looking for someone 2 days a week, ~ 8 hours a day (~ 9-5), ideally Mon/Weds or Tues/Thurs but we may have some flexibility on the days (other than Fridays, when we do not need care). Care would be in our home.

We're looking for someone who is warm, bright, reliable, thoughtful, who has a gentle, tender manner, and is experienced with young babies. Ideally, we'd love someone who is also knowledgeable about the developmental stages/needs of young babies. We believe in fresh air every day, walks, lots of books!, cuddling and interactive play. We have two dogs, so our nanny will need to enjoy and be comfortable with dogs as well. We'd like the nanny to help with light housework/meal prep as time permits (our son's needs always coming first).

At some point, now or later, we'd love to find another nearby family *within easy walking distance of our house* for a nanny share. We want to simplify our lives, and minimize car trips, hence the "walkable" criteria.  Care could be split between our homes (probably alternating weeks). Ideally both families would have a baby similar in age (6 mos).  We have a laid  back parenting style, but work hard to create a loving, healthy and stimulating environment  for our son. We seek a family with similar values.

Please contact us at bmcd418@yahoo.com if you'd like to know more, thanks for your interest!  Amy and Brent

Dynamic, experienced naturalist nanny seeking a stellar family to work with.

September 07, 2014

Greetings!

I am a childcare wizard with over 10 years of experience looking for a part time to full time gig with
a great family. I have the most experience with little ones 5 months to 3 years of age. I have a background in teaching (pre-K - 12th grade), from language classes to special education to outdoor education. My experience in pre-K included Waldorf and Montessori modalities. I have been certified in CPR and First Aid and plan to become recertified asap. I am Trustline Certified (includes a background check). I recently relocated from the Bay Area and have many solid references with families I became very close to. I live in North Portland and would prefer to work in the neighborhoods surrounding, although for the right fit I'd be willing to travel to farther away neighborhoods.

Fun & Experienced Part-Time Nanny!

August 19, 2011

Hi! I'm a graduate student looking to nanny for a fun, loving, and wonderful family! I'm very personable, friendly and supportive, and am happy to work with children of any age.

I have a B.S. in Education and have experience directing teen leadership programs, teaching outdoor education and have facilitated/tutored at cooperative learning programs at the elementary school level throughout my undergrad. I love being active and would love to take the kids to do fun things around Portland, but am also content with creating our own adventures at home.

I have great references and am available mornings and most afternoons (my school schedule is pretty flexible - let me know what works for you and we can figure something out!). I'm looking to nanny between 10-20 hours/week.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Nanny Would Love to Work for Your Family This Summer

May 18, 2011

Dear Urban Mamas and Papas,

My name is Hannah Rapp and I am looking to be a part-time nanny (3 days a week, although scheduling can be adjusted) this summer. I just returned home to NE Portland after finishing my second year of college in Southern California where I study Anthropology and Latin American Studies. I love to be outdoors, and would plan on taking your children to parks, bike rides (depending on age), playing in the backyard, etc. But since I know Portland’s weather can be a little wacky sometimes, with rain in July! I also have many indoor activities planned, such as painting, making music, reading, and other games that will challenge your children's imagination. I want to make this summer, with your children, one that will expand their knowledge and provide them with more tools for the future.

I have been in childcare since I was 14 watching children ranging from infant age to as old as 12 and have multiple references that I can connect you with. I am Red Cross certified and have taken care of kids with severe medical allergies. I also have experience tutoring children from 1st to 8th grade in math and writing.

I am a very lighthearted and an outgoing person who loves children and has spent my entire life around them. I am highly responsible and reliable and caring. Please let me know if I can be of any help to you and your family this summer.

My email is Hannah.Rapp@scrippscollege.edu if you would like a copy of my resume and the contact information for my references. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Hannah Rapp

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!!!

USAuPair - An Oregon Au Pair Agency!

August 27, 2010

Have you considered an au pair for your child care needs?   USAuPair is located in Lake Oswego, Oregon.  We place au pairs with families in the Portland metro area.  Au pairs are young adults from foreign countries who arrive on a 12-month J1 au pair visa.  They live with their host families and provide up to to 45 hours of child care weekly (up to 10 hours daily).  

The average expense is less than $320 weekly (per family, not per child), including weekly wage for au pair.  Au pairs arrive with medical insurance.  They have background checks, personal interviews with one of our foreign reps, English exam to measure their language level, psychometric exam that evaluates attitudes in caring for children, verified child care references from non-relatives, medical report and more. 

Before an au pair arrives to your family, he or she attends a Portland workshop (32-hours) on child/infant safety and development.  At the end of the workshop, host families may pick up their au pairs at a local hotel.

If you are interested, please give our office a call.  You can also visit the au pair gallery on our web site.  It profiles a few of the applicants available for placement.  Local families have used our service for years.  

USAuPair, au pairs and a host family were recently profiled in the Portland Business Journal, Hollywood Star News and Oregonian.  

Not sure about the program?  Join our Host Family Conference Day in September.  Meet USAuPair staff, host families and their au pairs.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Toddler, preschool, homeschool, before/ aftercare and date night space!

August 23, 2010

Urban Roots Playschool is a new in-home, child-centered playschool in the Montavilla neighborhood, easily accessible via Trimet and freeway from both NE and SE Portland, as well as Vancouver and the West Side. We offer a variety of services for children ages 1-12, and their families, focused on the child as an individual. Our loosely structured, rhythm-based flexible curriculum focuses on growing and cooking food, creating art, active play and becoming responsible citizens of our children's "tribe". Though we are most influenced by Waldorf and Montessori philosophies, our community definitely has the personality of both the teachers and the "students".

Our "playschool" has 2 age groups: ages 1-4 (preschool), and 5-10 (homeschool). Each group is held Monday-Thursday 9-2, or 12-5 (overlap for lunch and freeplay). Early and late starts are both available. Both groups will engage in individual and group projects that "teach" math, science, literacy, art, music, language, and physical education, with long, gentle transitions and overlap between activities, creating a relaxing and fun atmosphere free of pressure to "perform". Meals and snacks are generally vegetarian, organic and gluten-free, and are usually made onsite (often by the children).

Friday is "playcare" day. There will be no "curriculum" but the general rhythm will be the same.

Before and afterschool care, transport from local schools, and weekend care offered as available.

"Playnights" are offered on Friday evenings, and consist of dinner, a "dance party", outdoor and indoor activities.

We are flexible on start and end times, as long as the children arrive during a "transition" time, so that no one is arriving or leaving without finishing a project, enjoying the fruits of their labor, or starting behind the other children. Make no mistake, this is our home, NOT a large center. However, we have the same (if not more) experience, expertise, love and commitment of a "traditional" school.

Our rates are as follows. We DO offer partial scholarships, sibling discounts, full-time discounts when possible, and also are willing to accept DHS or other supplemental pay.

1/2 day "school" program : $25 per day
full day 8-6 : $45 per day
hourly rates beginning at $6
date night 5-10:30 $25 per child (Add $15 for overnight up till 10am).

please check www.urbanrootsplayschool.com for more info, or call 503-683-2552

Responsible, creative, energetic nanny looking for work!

June 17, 2010

       My name is Hannah Olson and I am an experienced nanny looking for families who need either part-time or full time child care.  I have been a babysitter and summer nanny since I was 13-years-old.  Currently, I attend Seattle University and I am home for the summer in Portland. 

        As well as looking after children between the ages of 4 and 10, I have tutored elementary students in writing and reading and led musical theater summer camps.  I love doing both indoor and outdoor activities with kids such as bike rides and art projects. 

        My summer schedule is flexible and I am looking for work up until mid-September.  References and a resume are available upon request.  Please contact me if you're interested.

drop-in, summer, and school year care in child-centered community!

June 08, 2010

Do you need to work, shop, or just have some time to yourself? Are you worried that you will not be able to find (or afford) the kind of experienced, loving, and compassionate care that your child deserves? Are you tired of having to choose between expensive nannies or big impersonal centers?



Well, look no further! I am a mother of 3 with over 15 years of childcare experience outside of the home, as well CPR/ First Aid training, familiarity with naturopathic medicine, and both early childhood and elementary education training. I currently have spaces for both regular and drop-in care, as well as upcoming "date night" parties. My home feels like just that: a home. Your child will be welcomed into our family, where they will be nurtured and encouraged to explore, learn, and play at their own pace. We do cooking projects, art, music, and lots of outdoor activity, as well as reading, building with blocks and legos, and other imaginative play. Though not a certified "center", I do have a philosophy that combines the beliefs of Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia, with plenty of room for both loosely-structured learning and free exploration of art, music, science, language and social studies. Our family operates on the principles of unconditional parenting (U/P), attachment parenting, and NVC (non-violent communication). I will happily support cloth diapering, breastfeeding, babywearing, and can accomodate allergies and other family-specific practices.

I provide loosely-structured care as well as pre-school and kindergarten readiness, homeschool support, and other extracurricular and tutoring opportunities for infants through junior high.



For the summer, I have both full-time, and part-time available, as well as dropins. For fall there aare spaces available, schedule pending. My rate for children 3-12 is $25 for 1/2 day, $40 for full day. under 3 (not potty-trained) are $30 for 1/2 day and $50 for full day. Hourly rates, overnights, partial scholarships, and sibling discounts are possible as well. My goal is to provide the affordable, high-quality care I could not find for my own kids when I was deciding whether to return to a career outside the home. So, if you need help affording this, PLEASE ASK!!! :)



We are located in the Montavilla/ North Tabor neighborhood, easily accessible by Max, bus, and freeway from Vancouver, Outer SE and NE Portland, Hollywood, Belmont, Hawthorne, Alameda, and many other neighborhoods.



Please contact me with any questions. I look forward to welcoming your family into ours.  molliv@gmail.com or 503-839-9123

May 18, 2010

 

Hello Urban Mamas!

I am an experienced child-care provider looking to pick up a few extra jobs to supplement my current income. I do not need a consistent schedule and therefore, I am willing to work for you whenever you need a "date night", an opportunity to go shopping, or just time away from the house. I am very flexible and I can work with your family's specific needs as far as a schedule goes. I live in the inner-NE Alberta Arts district and I can provide care in my home or yours! :)

About me:

  • College educated
  • 10+ years of experience in child-care
  • I am a mother & aunt who prefers dress-up and swim lessons over getting a desk job! :)
  • Experience with infants, preschoolers, elementary aged kiddos, and teenagers
  • Currently work as a birth doula and I am passionate about pursuing a career in the health-care field
  • Knowledgeable in Spanish language (as well as other subjects if your family is in need of homework help)
  • I  am very caring, compassionate, and comfortable with attachment parenting, cloth diapering, and alternative family arrangements.
  • I do not drive, but I am very comfortable with public transportation, biking, walking, etc.
  • I would love to facilitate fun activities for your little ones this summer (visits to the pool and/or park, swim lessons, sports, crafts, reading, and more!)
  • My rates are flexible, but range between $10-$13 depending on your situation.


If you'd like more information (including my resume and references), please email me at gentlewavesdoula@gmail.com.

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.
