Portland$14/hr  |  1 kid
We are seeking a family with an infant interested in sharing a nanny with us. Our nanny is truly the most amazing nanny we have ever had. She is loving, caring, professional, and responsible. She helped us with sleep training and introduced independent play to our son. Now he goes down by himself, loves “reading” books, and develops new skills freely without unnecessary interruptions.

Details:
Where: SE Belmont/Laurelhurst Park Area (within a ten minute drive)
When: January 2020- flexible
Hours: M-F, minimum 35 hous/week
Rates: $14/hour for shared hours; $20/hour for individual hours
Age range: birth date between 5/15/19 and 9/15/19
Other details: one year commitment, legal pay through a payroll company, vacation and sick time, guaranteed hours, monthly health insurance stipend

Our nanny’s experience & background:
I have been working with infants and young toddlers in Portland for the last seven years and specialize in nanny shares with infants.

My caregiving is heavily influenced by the RIE philosophy. I attended a 10 day RIE Foundations Course with Polly Elam and Debbie Bergstrom in August of this year, deepening my understanding of infant needs and development. The principles of RIE put respect into action with the goal of raising secure, confident, and autonomous people. A family interested in Montessori style learning and/or RIE would be a good fit.

I am skilled at helping young infants find their rhythm and settle into a schedule, and believe the familiarity of (flexible) routine supports them in feeling secure in the world. Baby wearing, sleep training, cloth diapering, breastmilk and formula, and baby led weaning/beginning solids are all things I am very comfortable with.

I love taking children out into the community to engage in activities like story times, music classes, and nature exploration. Out in the world, we build relationships with other nannies and children, expanding the children's social-emotional development.

Emily was so wonderful! Her tasks were to help us with the kids through the day, do some moderate babysitting when we had to run errands, changing diapers, etc. She was always on time and was willing to accommodate the occasional schedule change if something came up! She's the sweetest person with the most calm demeanor. We love Emily! - Kylie Wingert
