Meet my kids. I have a 4 year old boy who loves life and a 1 year old girl who loves to giggle at her brother. We are a German/American family. My husband is from Germany and I’m from Portland. We would like to have a German speaking nanny who can love our kids as her/his own. We like to be outside and going on adventures as much as possible. We are a tidy family that is particular about keeping the house clean. My husband works out of town and I’m a substitute teacher. I don’t have a specific schedule or set days that I work, but am willing to do set days. My son goes to preschool four days a week so the nanny would be responsible for drop off and pick up at school.

Hello! We are looking for a loving nanny to be with our two children starting this November when I return to work. Our son just turned 3 and our daughter is two months old.

Before Covid, my son was part of a nature based toddler program that was a wonderful fit. We loved that he was outdoors everyday with a really loving caretaker and 1-2 other toddler friends. They had the best life!

While finding care for our kids is our first priority, we’d also be interested in exploring an arrangement with another family so our son could be joined by a similar aged playmate, perhaps just for one or part of the days. This is all TBD based on the comfort level of the caretaker (3 is a lot!) and the ability to find an interested family.

We are still learning and growing as parents but aim for a peaceful parenting approach based on positive connection and communication. We mostly try to use natural consequences for discipline.

Our son is very verbal, focused, sweet, observant and curious. He loves to read books, all things construction, magnet tiles and Duplo. He can get very immersed in his indoor activities but is also content once you get him outside to climb trees and run. Our daughter continues to wake up to the world and is easy going and delightful.

We are conscientious about limiting our risks during covid and would like for you to do the same. We are fortunate to be working from home through at least the end of this year. I will have calls (so many calls!) and at times I’m sure this won’t work out perfectly, but hope to continue nursing and being available to my baby as much as possible throughout the day. Let’s be in good communication so the arrangement feels supportive and respectful for all of us; I understand that working while both parents are home is an unusual arrangement.

Ideally we’d find someone who sees this as a long term commitment, especially since you’ll be developing a relationship with our kids at such critical early years.

days a week. It would be helpful to have someone who is able to stay overtime when needed. Of course, there will be compensation for this. Also, I will need my son driven to my office during my lunch break for feedings. My office is only about a mile from my home.

We are looking for someone who is reliable, creative and supportive. Second languages and a related college degree are a plus. We prefer someone with at least 5 years related experience with infants and will need a clean background check. This site does not give an option for a salary range. We are looking for someone between $15-25 per hour.

I will be pumping at work, so it will be bottle feeding for the first year with supplementing with solids beginning at 6 months. Meal preparation will be required along these lines. If you could do some light housekeeping throughout the day, that would be helpful. Just cleaning up the messes as they occur basically. We have a cat and some chickens but we will be able to care for them before and after work.

Looking for childcare for our 1.5 year old, Alden. Ideally we would like someone with flexible hours. My husband's work schedule changes from week to week (but is set three months in advance). I currently have a back injury and need someone to help with Alden while my husband is at work, and with light housework and meal prep during nap times. I will be home most of the time. Ideally hours would range from 15-30 hours per week, but this is flexible if we find the right person. The most important thing to us is if it's a good fitting relationship for all involved. We do not have any pets, we have a house with a backyard that Alden loves spending time in. Alden loves to read books, imaginary play, exploring the backyard/nearby parks. He has recently learned how to walk and is very chatty and obsessed with learning new words. Our main expectation is to be helpful in making our days happy and possible while I'm navigating this injury, and beyond.

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Portland, OR

Before you start looking for a nanny job, it's essential to learn about the different types of nannies and how they compare to each other so that you make sure you’re looking for the right opportunities.

The different types of nanny jobs have different nanny responsibilities. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. However, in general, a nanny is responsible for making sure the children's needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to make sure your expectations are aligned with the family.

There are temporary nanny jobs, even seasonal nanny jobs like summer nanny jobs. Beyond seasonal and temporary nanny positions, there are differences between full-time and part-time nanny jobs. The primary difference being the number of hours you spend at your nanny job every week. For full-time nannies, there are options for live in nanny positions and live-out positions in Portland. Live-out positions are more common, but each family has their own set of needs that require different types of care, and live in nanny positions can be exactly what some families want. If you're looking to explore live in nanny positions , it's even more important to create a shared set of expectations around hours, responsibilities, and what is expected of you when you're not on the clock.

How to Interview for a Nanny Job in Portland, OR

Once you start connecting with prospective employers, the next step is a nanny job interview. Here is a list of some nanny interview questions to prepare for:

  • What do you think children like best about you?
  • What kind of activities will you do with children this age?
  • How do you handle problems that arise behaviorally and emotionally with kids this age?

Beyond answering questions, families will want you to have your nanny references ready and ask any questions to show initiative. The nanny job interview is an excellent opportunity to get aligned on the nanny job expectations. By doing this, you can get off on the right foot with your future employer.
