We're a family of teachers looking for another family with which to nanny share starting in August, 2019. We will primarily be looking for a nanny share for our new baby, approximately four months old in August. Our daughter will be just over two years old, and may need some part-time care if a daycare doesn't cover all hours we are away at work. We're in NE Portland (Cully, near Beaumont/Wilshire, Roseway, etc) looking for another family who need 6:30am-3:30 pm, M-F, some of the hours within this timeframe, or hours that are close to these. Looking forward to hearing from you!

We are looking to have an infant join us in a nanny share 3-5 days per week in NE Portland. Our daughter Iris is almost 8 months old. Nanny has been with the same family for almost 5 years, but will be transitioning to our family in Feburary because they only need her for school pick up and drop off. Her schedule for the share is Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8:30-4:30. She is also open Tuesdays and Thursday, but those would be non-share hours. She is currently pursuing her degree in elementary education. Family will need to be comfortable with outings as nanny will be taking Iris to baby sign and swim lessons. Other family will not be required to participate in the classes, but other child would have to join the nanny when dropping off Iris. We also have a zoo and OMSI membership and plan to have many outings at those locations in the spring/summer. We also have 2 dogs, a golden doodle and boxer. They both grew up with our 11 year old, so they are extremely friendly and good with children.

Hi! We are seeking a NE family with a 3 year old who is looking for part-time care. We'll be doing Tuesday/Thursday 9-1.

Our 3 year old is very sweet, shy, and a bookworm who likes to hike and romp at playgrounds.

We have a wonderful nanny who started with us in October. She was previously with a family who is very close to us, and they are moving on to preschool, and sad to end their time with her. She has a preschool background, and extensive experience with kids. Mid-30s, very kind soul.

We just moved to NE, near 29th and Fremont, after 6 years in SE Portland. Hoping to host at our house and are very open to co-hosting back and forth.

We don't do screen-time at home, and try to get outside every day rain or shine. Healthy snacks are a must.

Please reach out if you'd like to share with us!
