The Bushlin Family
Northeast Portland, Portland$15/hr  |  1 kid
We’re looking for a family and caregiver to do a nanny share 2-3 days/week, roughly 20-24 hrs flexible between 9am - 7pm M-F with our son. Simon is a very active and friendly 2 1/2 year old. We’d really love for him to be able to enjoy playing in parks, exploring neighborhoods on walks and learning with an engaged and patient caregiver, along with another child (or siblings). We’re looking for a nanny and another family who are also diligent with social distancing, and maybe in a similar situation of having delayed daycare/preschool due to Covid.
Ideally they could spend 2 or 3 weekdays together, with the times and location flexible / up for discussion. (Our home could be a possibility for one of the days.)
We currently live near Wilshire park in Alameda, but are hoping to buy a home soon so our location isn’t permanent. We would be happy to find a family nearby, but are also willing to drive to another area for a good fit. My husband works at OHSU, so SW PDX could work as well.
Let us know if something like this sounds like it could work for you as a caregiver or for your family, thanks!

We want a nanny that will show up late, sneak her boyfriend in right after we leave and only change our kid's diaper once, just before we arrive home.

Just kidding. We want normal child care with reasonable expectations.

Hello. My son turned 2 years old this summer. He loves anyone who will read, walk, play, or dance with him. He misses being around other kids since moving away from his cousins in June, so I thought a nanny share would be a safer alternative to daycare this year to get that social time in with another fun loving kid or two. I work from home so am happy to host. We are interested in both a part time nanny and nanny share preferrably 8:00am-1pm 2-3Xtimes per week starting around the end of October but can be flexible with days and some times. He has plenty of toys to share.

I am baby quite yet! I am doing research to see what this nanny/nanny share process works. She is expected to arrive early February of 2021, and I will be taking a typical maternity leave at that time. So, I will be needing help starting the beginning of May (approximately).

Hi there!

We are looking for another friend or two to join our little guy, W!

Our little guy is currently 7 months old. He has been with Kelly since he was 2.5 months old. We LOVE our nanny, Kelly. She has given us total peace of mind and we trust and respect her.

Right now there is availability Tues-Thurs. Hours are approximately 7:30am to 5:30pm. The share is located in SE. Rate is $10/hr.

Kelly is wonderful! She came with great references. She is very responsive and professional. Kelly is a mother of 3 and a grandmother to two. She’s worked in child care for many years and just gets joy out of spending time with the little ones. She takes our little one outside as often as possible, keeps a daily notebook, and plays well. Our little guy is happy to see her each day!

Let me know if I can answer any other questions for you!

Hi families! We are seeking a family with an infant interested in sharing our nanny with us. Our daughter is almost 7 months old (DOB 10/17) and we would prefer to have another infant close to the same age. We would host and our home is well set up with plenty of room for two infants to play and sleep. We are located in Beaumont-Wilshire.

Hours: Seeking a minimum of 24 hours shared care per week. Our nanny currently works 10am-6pm M-F, but the hours will shift earlier when working goes back to normal.

Rates: $14/hour for shared hours; $20/hour for individual hours when/if needed

About our nanny: Our nanny is very caring, kind, responsible, and loves caring for babies. She specializes in infants and nanny shares and has been working with infants and young toddlers in Portland for the last 7 years. Her caregiving is heavily influenced by the RIE philosophy and a family interested in Montessori style learning and/or RIE would be a good fit.

COVID details: My wife has been going into her office for work (non-medical), but with reduced hours and social distancing on premises. I have been working at home. Otherwise, we have been staying at home except for some walks and minimal grocery store runs (done by me). Our nanny has also been observing social distancing rules outside of work.
