I am an experienced nanny and caregiver with a history of working with newborns, toddlers, adolescents, elderly and pets. I am energetic, upbeat and full of positivity. I have spent the last four years providing care for an Elderly woman with Alzheimer’s Disease, this experience has furthered my adaptability and assiduity in my all around caregiving skill set. I recently moved to Oregon from Michigan and in my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, cooking and spending time with my close family and friends.

Hello! I am an energetic but easy-going 20 year old. I love the outdoors, art & design, photography, traveling, and so much more. I am in college for Graphic Communication Design at the University of Cincinnati, and I hope to do app/web design or motion design in the future. My program is unique as I rotate between school and internships throughout the years, and I will have an open semester for Fall 2020 (August - December). I’m looking for a lovely family to help take care for their little ones in that timeframe! I have 6+ years of babysitting and nannying experience, majority with a family with 3 girls. I’ve done everything from play, cook, clean, drive, bath, homework, and so much more! My CPR and FirstAid certificates are expired but would be willing to get certified again. If you feel I’d be a good fit, I’d love to chat and hear about your family!

Portland$15/hr  |  3 yrs experience
Hi there! My name is Kyla. I grew up in colorful family of teachers back in Washington D.C. and am relatively new to Portland, having moved here about a year ago for a job offer at a world-class fertility clinic.

Since the start of COVID-19, I have decided to make a career change from public health administration to child care / education in hopes of maintaining a healthy work-life balance while still exercising my passion for family development.

As a sitter, my goal is to help families bond and prosper without overstepping boundaries. I aim to strengthen relationships by lightening the demanding workload that comes with being a parent to enable families more time and emotional energy to live in the present.

In addition to teaching, I have been a trusted nanny and child sitter for 4 years in Portland OR.

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

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.

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.
