Seeking toddler to join our nanny share in SE

Hi families! We are looking for another toddler to join our sweet 2.5 year old and wonderful nanny on MWF from 8am-4pm. Our nanny is very trustworthy, attentive and loves children! We feel lucky that our daughter is in her care. We'd be open to hosting the share every week, but we prefer to trade off houses so the kiddos can play in different environments. Please contact me if interested. We are looking for a child to join us asap. Thank you! ctmappel@gmail.com

Looking for a Second Child for a Private Waldorf Preschool Class

March 27, 2017

We have a very sensitive sensory girl who is 4.5 and who does not do well in preschool because of the number of children.  Her last preschool teacher (a certified Waldorf teacher) offered to host a two hour, once per week preschool session for her and one other child.  This teacher and her preschool are absolutely amazing!  We are looking for one other child between the ages of 3 and 5 who would join us for this adventure.  Maybe another sensory child like her who struggles with larger groups of children.  Or, a non-sensory child who is quiet and would like the opportunity to experience a beautiful Waldorf school once per week.

We would meet for two hours on Thursday afternoons.  The preschool is on Mt. Scott. 

Please contact Heather at hblankenheim@gmail.com if you are interested.

Experienced, warm and adventurous Nanny seeking long-term family

March 25, 2017

Hello Parents and Families!

I am an experienced, warm, adventurous and conscientious nanny and mother seeking a family for an extended mutual commitment. Interested in a single-child household of infant/toddler/preschool age on Portland's west side or near surrounding suburbs. Flexibility on scheduling, but ideally seeking 20-36 hours per week, within a 2-4 day period, during Monday-Friday.

I have worked as a childcare provider for the last 22 years with the last 8 as a private caregiver and in classroom settings. I am enthusiastic and well informed about early child hood development. I greatly enjoy working with families to create consistent, safe and enriching environments where children thrive. I am passionate and energized about engaging with neighborhood assets like parks programming, play spaces, natural areas and libraries during our weekly routines.  I love creating games, crafts and other activities to keep little minds busy during inclement weather. I even own a big colorful parachute!

I authentically communicate with children, speaking to them with confidence and respect while creating clear boundaries in a safe and loving way. I treat each individual as their own special and unique self, to foster trust and cultivate emotional life skills through consistency and emotional acknowledgment.

My husband and I welcomed our sweet, smart little girl in August of 2013 and she joins me on my workday; it has been a joyful and rewarding experience for our family as well as the families we care for. We are looking to work with a family who is excited about the co-developmental benefits of a built-in buddy and the ability to socialize their child in a small and caring environment. We have our own transportation, an extra car seat and a carrier hiking pack for our next adventure pal!

I would love to share more about my childcare philosophies, our extensive work history and the positive life-long relationships we have formed through our nanny relationships. I look forward to learning more about your family and what you are looking for in a caregiver!

*Email Laura at: PDXmodernpoppins@gmail.com

*Extensive resume, excellent references and letters of recommendation upon request.

Hey, mamas! Our sweet nanny is moving on and we are left in a tough spot of trying to find another loving caretaker within two weeks. We are open to having someone in our home again, sharing someone else's awesome nanny, daycare, etc. The most we can pay and this would be for an in-home caretaker, would be $13/hour (employer taxes are insane!). We know this isn't top dollar but it's balanced by incredibly easy kids and we pay even for our time away when we are out of town. Our schedule "was" Mon - Wed 8:15 - 6:15 and we'd love to have this schedule again. We also have our sweet 10 year old with us every other week (share time with her dad). Please let us know if you or an amazing care provider you know is accepting 14 month old little one. tskili2003@yahoo.com

Childcare Openings

March 19, 2017

Hi all! My name is Charlene Adams and I'm an in home childcare provider in North Portland. I'm located between Morgan St and Buffalo St. I've been doing childcare out of my home for about 8 years now, but before this, I was a childcare teacher at Legacy Emanuel's Childcare center. I worked there for a little over 21 years, but after they closed down due to lack of funding, I was forced to find another job. Inhome childcare has been a perfect fit! I'm a licensed childcare provider and I have my food handler's card, my recognizing child abuse certification, CPR, first aid, and an approved background check. In my care, we have a set schedule which consists of sign language lessons, learning their ABC's and numbers, story time, and a daily walk (if the weather is nice). Meals are provided. My hours are 7:30 am - 5:30 pm Monday -Friday. Currently, I have 4 full time children (ages 4 months, 7 months, a 2 year old, and a 2 and a half year old). I like to keep my group small by not going over 6 kids. I have 2 openings for ages 2 and up. If you'd like more information, you can shoot me an email at adamscharlene1965@yahoo.com OR you can give me a call at (503) 891-6838. Thanks! I hope to hear from you!

Preschool Winner

March 16, 2017

Seeking PT Spanish-speaking nanny share for a 3 month-old in July (NE/King)
I am expecting my first child in April and would love to set up a part-time Spanish-speaking nanny share for when my maternity leave is over in July. I’d like to share the nanny with another family who has an infant or toddler, has similar values and schedule and who is interested in raising bilingual children.
I am hoping the nanny will speak only Spanish to the two children, feed them healthy food and make time for reading, crafts, downtime, play and outdoor activities. I am looking for a nanny who is trained in infant CPR/First Aid and who is perhaps familiar with the Montessori method. I’m considering $9 an hour per family based on experience.
I am happy to host in my home or to host half of the time. I live near the King School. I am a non-smoker and have two cats. My parents will be helping with childcare so I can be flexible in terms of hours and days. I am thinking around 20-24 hours a week. I work 8am-5pm Mon-Fri.
Potential nanny or family who wants to share a nanny? Please contact Trinity at trinityjpb at gmail or 617-304-6700. I look forward to talking more.
Thanks!

Part Time After School Nanny Needed

March 11, 2017

We are looking for some after school care for our 5 year old daughter. This is a super part time gig, with potential opportunity for increased hours over the summer, and date nights.

For now, we are looking for a nanny to pick up our daughter from preschool at 3:30 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, until about 5pm. Wednesdays may be a little shorter, as I'm often home by 4:30 pm.

This is probably an ideal position for someone who lives in the Sellwood neighborhood, or nearby. This could work for someone who doesn't drive. Bus line 70 is near her school, and there are plenty of activities in the neighborhood to walk around and explore (library, coffee shop, park, etc.). Our house is about a 20 minute walk from her school. If you do have a reliable car, we can provide you with a high-back booster.

Please e-mail (kimbd@pdx.edu) with your resume, 2-3 references, expected pay range, and availability to meet for an informal interview. Our daughter is an outgoing, energetic, funny & bright kiddo. We look forward to hearing from you!

Join me in creating a playschool for 2-3 year olds!

March 06, 2017

Cyndi Perczek is a creative play specialist who leads co-op preschools for 2-4 year olds. For the past 11 years, she's provided out-of-the box education that allows her and other families the freedom to create early childhood experiences that are both intimate and adventurous. With a BA in theatre and an MS in education, she combines the two to make stories and make- believe the driving force of her curriculum. Interactive storytelling keeps the class on their feet by acting every moment with their voice and body. Cyndi has worked with organizations like Story Pirates, Music Together, Brooklyn Beanstalk, and Spellbound Theatre as a teaching artist and has worked at Montessori schools, daycares, and mommy and me classes as a Spanish teacher. During the summers she leads a detective camp for 5-8 year olds that solve mysteries by finding hidden clues and letters in the outdoors. She is moving to Portland in July and her Brooklyn co-op community is happy to give recommendations and tell you about their experiences with Cyndi. 
 
If you're interested in creating a cooperative playschool with me for the 2017-2018 school year please email me at cyndi.perczek@gmail.com. Thank you! 20160926_105421

Childcare Openings

March 05, 2017

Hi all! My name is Charlene Adams and I'm an in home childcare provider in North Portland. I'm located between Morgan St and Buffalo St. I've been doing childcare out of my home for about 8 years now, but before this, I was a childcare teacher at Legacy Emanuel's Childcare center. I worked there for a little over 21 years, but after they closed down due to lack of funding, I was forced to find another job. Inhome childcare has been a perfect fit! I'm a licensed childcare provider and I have my food handler's card, my recognizing child abuse certification, CPR, first aid, and an approved background check. In my care, we have a set schedule which consists of sign language lessons, learning their ABC's and numbers, story time, and a daily walk (if the weather is nice). Meals are provided. My hours are 7:30 am - 5:30 pm Monday -Friday. Currently, I have 3 full time children (ages 4 months, 7 months, and a 2 and a half year old). I like to keep my group small by not going over 6 kids. I have 3 openings for ages 2 and up. If you'd like more information, you can shoot me an email at adamscharlene1965@yahoo.com OR you can give me a call at (503) 891-6838. Thanks! I hope to hear from you!

Fridays 9-2: Nanny share with 4.5 year old girl in North Portland.

February 21, 2017

We'd love to find another child to share our nanny with our daughter on Fridays, on her day off preschool, before they go to pick up our older daughter at school. A girl around her age would be ideal. Our daughter is starting kindergarten in the fall, loves art, dancing, dressing up.  Would be $9/hour for each of us.  9-2, or another period between 8:30 and 2:30 could work as well. Would be at our home in Arbor Lodge (and nearby parks etc.), or possibly at yours if nearby. Let me know if you are interested and we can see if it's a fit. Laura @ 310-736-5359

Portland-nanny-logo

 

Hi UrbanMamas!

I started an on-call nanny agency a few months ago, Portland Nanny. We specialize in emergency, back-up and intermittent childcare needs. I started this company because I am a stay at home mom who needed quality care irregularly and had trouble finding QUALITY care exactly when I needed it. So, I started Portland Nanny. 

 

Child home sick from school? Regular childcare fell through? Need a date night sitter? That is where we can help! We do it all. I essentially have 3-5 nannies on call at all times. 

 
ALL of our nannies are EXCEPTIONAL. I would trust them all with my children, and do! They are thoroughly background checked, infant and child CPR trained, have years of experience in childcare (with references to back up that they were exceptional!), and are seriously just awesome. 

 

Let us help you when life happens! Everyone deserves quality childcare, no matter how last minute or how infrequently you need it!

ChildRoots is Enrolling Now!

DSC_0468

At ChildRoots, we believe that children are capable and strong. They deserve beautiful spaces, high-quality materials, and curriculum that is built upon their interests. They deserve to be listened to and respected — their ideas are powerful. They deserve organic, whole foods; and spaces to run, jump, skip, and yell. They deserve a community that nurtures social and emotional intelligence and introduces letters and numbers. They deserve teachers that enliven their natural curiosity and foster a lifelong love of learning.

ChildRoots has three locations in the heart of Portland, and we currently have just a few openings for wobblers, toddlers, and preschoolers at our Northwest location.

Take a look at our website, and get in touch with any questions or to schedule a tour!

Pea Pod Playschool and Baby Cafe

February 16, 2017

Looking to spend some quality time with your child?

Want to build community and foster relationships for your family?

Do you have a flexible schedule and need a little time to yourself?

Committed to staying home with your child but need some adult brain stimulation?

Pea Pod Playschool, a family cooperative childcare program, is an opportunity for parents to spend quality time with their kids, while forming meaningful relationships with others outside their immediate family. Because there is no teacher, parents are required to work a shift alongside two other parents, which allows them to form community and learn from each other. The program also provides parents some much needed time away from their children when they drop them off on the days that they are not working shift.

The program is for children ages 15 months to 3.5 years, or whenever they graduate into preschool. Each day follows a set schedule, which includes an art activity, circle time, a healthy snack, outdoor play, lunch-time and unstructured play. The program is play-based and focuses on socialization skills and building emotional intelligence, such as empathy. Pea Pod provides new families with educational support including an orientation, training sessions, and access to on-going parenting workshops and resources within the field of child development. Visit www.peapodpdx.org for more info. Email membership@peapodpdx.org to schedule a visit.

Location: 4911 NE Couch Ave, Portland, OR 97213

Program Details:

2 day program for children 15-24 mo. on TU/TH, 9am-12pm, $140/mo
