A little bit about us…

I am looking for a short to long-term Nanny to provide excellent childcare to my 5-year-old sunshine, who happens to be on the autism spectrum. I will need support while attending nursing school. Must be at least 21 years old, CPR & First Aid Certified, and be willing to commit long term (at least 1-2 years). Ideal candidates must be patient, engaging, child-focused, compassionate, responsible, and familiar with non-verbal communication skills (it takes no time to learn his communication style). He loves to parallel play and low pressure with playtime. He mostly likes his space, which gives you time to prepare things for him. I would really love a nanny who has experience with autistic children and how they operate in a neurotypical world. Responsibilities include all things child related, such as taking care of his needs, keeping him safe and clean, laundering his dirty clothes weekly, cleaning the play area after activities, loading/unloading the dishwasher, planning meals for him on occasion, assisting in potty training, and organizing creative and educational activities (indoors and outdoors), as well as school pick-up and drop-offs on certain days. Pay is negotiable based on performing all the duties required. Gas is also reimbursed.

Hours will increase in May 2023 once I start clinical rotations.

We need a nanny starting in early October. Our son Gabriel will be 5 months old. He is healthy. We live in Sellwood and would prefer a nanny come to our home but are flexible if the nanny lives close by or en route to our work. We are still sorting out the hours, but likely it would be 3 full-time days, likely 30 hours/week. Responsibilities would be child care and housekeeping when able. We wouldn't want any driving unless in the case of an emergency.

Need part time childcare for my sweet and happy 10-month-old daughter roughly 1-2 days/week for around 4 hours each day in the late afternoons. Duties include minor dishes and food prep, minor clean up/vaccuum, supervised play and learning, reading books, and changing diapers. We have two very friendly indoor only cats who will also be around but no actually care is required.

My daughter is very busy learning how to crawl and able to pull herself up to stand. She loves books, singing songs, playing peek-a-boo, going for walks in the neighborhood, and trying all the new foods! She takes naps twice a day and will likely sleep for a portion of the time we'd need care. We prefer someone come to our house for these reasons. Plus we have all the gizmos and gadgets a baby could need here!

It would be an easy part time position with opportunities to add more hours potentially in the future or for date nights. We'd love to see if you'd be the right fit for our family!

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.
