A little bit about us…

We're looking for part-time care for our son in inner NE Portland at the beginning of May. He will be 4 1/2-months-old then and we'll be needing care Mondays and Thursdays from ~9am-4pm.

A little about us: we're in our 30's, and this is our first baby after an infertility battle. We're generally laid back, like to camp, enjoy good eats and drinks, value close friends and family, love baseball and our dog, and some good DIY projects. We value gentle parenting, attachment and attunement, and the chance to learn and make mistakes. We value kindness and respect for all people and our planet, and hope to instill that in our baby.

We'd love to meet you and see if we'd be a fit!

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.

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:

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.
