Hello community,
My name is Meecah, I am 20 years old and I have been nannying as a career nanny for about 4 years, I was able to nanny so young because I was enrolled in online school so I could also work. My mother had an in-home daycare for 25+ years that I grew up around. I have been a toddler and school age teacher for the YMCA too! I have cared for children with neonatal abstinence syndrome, children with special needs, twins, and children who need to be fed through a feeding tube. Working with infants and toddlers is where I feel most special, but I have worked with all ages and enjoy helping children of every age become the best version of theirselves, along with helping their family create a stress free home life environment for everyone. IT IS MY PLEASURE TO HELP FAMILIES! I am located in the Milwaukie area, but I am more than willing to travel for the right family 100%, and I am actually moving in a few months to the tualatin/wilsonville/Tigard area so any family in those locations or near there would be fine too! I am lookin for a family to be apart of full time, and the best time for me would be in the AM until the afternoon. So anywhere from 6am- 3pm or later if needed would be a perfect match! I am CPR certified, I have my food handlers permit, and I am also in the oregon state childcare registry.
When you add me to your family regimen this comes with plenty of laundry help, kitchen clean up, grocery shopping, pet needs, any reasonable personal assistant needs, any errands I would have to run for the family, or taking the child(ren) to classes, appointments, pickup/drop off etc.

Feel free to message me to talk more in detail! I am looking forward to finding the right family to help create a safe, loving and educational environment for their sweet babies.

Thank you!

Hey there, thank you for taking the time to view my profile. I’m originally from Portland, but I’ve spent the last three years traveling before relocating back to PDX/vancouver. Recently graduated with my medication aid in the state of Oregon. While attending school, I worked as a caregiver/nanny for a bright and loving teenage girl for 2 years. Who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and challenged obstacles.

I enjoy reading, arts and crafts, and creating new memories with children. My goal is to always create a safe and fun environment where children can play, learn and have a blast. Previously, working for YEI as a camp leader I enjoy giving access to ample outdoor recreation time. Giving ongoing hands help in after school homework. And being a great influence in children lives.

As a sitter/nanny I appreciate how open and straightforward parents are. With clear guidelines, and what they expect from me as a sitter. During my time, I don’t mind cleaning or tidying up the house and Cooking creative meals. I have experience with food allergies, and know how to go about prevention.

I’m currently CPR and First aid certified. I hold a med aid license for the state of Oregon, and food handlers card. Recent, finger prints/background check also available.

In addition, I do have discounts for low income families and always happy to renegotiate price. If you have any questions or would like to set up a interview in person / via FaceTime. I’m more than happy to do so.

My name is clarity , you can call me whatever makes you happy. I come from a very large very poor family. As one of the oldest it was always our responsibility to care for the other kids while the adults worked. This included feeding, cleaning, changing, safety and entertainment. After putting the kids to bed it was then our job to put the house back in order. This was a normal occurrence in my younger life. As I get older I continued to care for the dependents of family and friends, in my attempt to help support the family. When I entered highschool I took an early childhood education class, where I played the role of teacher to about 20 preschool children. I was responsible for their safety, providing developmentally appropriate lessons, food/snacks that complied with all allergies, and in general helping them have a good time. While most of my experience has been through family, it is much better than non. I am a kind, open person that is eager to learn , improve and help wherever possible. I love the innocence in children and animals. I plan to be a veterinarian one day but I’m held back by financial concerns. Hopefully this will give me the opportunity to both do what I love and help me save up for my dream.

Hello thank you for taking the time to read my bio. I am a 25 year old student.
I absolutely adore kids. I have 4 siblings of my own, who I've helped raised along with helping my mother and her daycare business. We had close to 8 infants/toddlers a day. Also I was a Sunday school teacher for 2 years at our church and worked with anywhere from 30-70 children at a time. Did i have a screaming migraine afterwards? You betcha:) But it was so worth it. I try and always keep safety as the number one priority when her I'm around children. I can prepare just about any meal. I've also helped the parents with laundry, cleaning up, running errands, grocery shopping, and so much more. I've also worked as a personal assistant, receptionist and interior organizer (5yrs).
I am respectful and will follow instructions, after all you are the parent, you know your child best. I will always try and offer advice or assistance in anything I might see needs adjustment or help. But of course always keep you informed. Please do contact me as I am looking to start as soon as possible. Thank you so very much. I can't wait to hear from you

Hello I'm Victoria im 22 about to have a little one of my own july i personally think what makes me such a great nanny is that I have decided to make full time care of children a professional career because I genuinely loves children personally fulfilling.”

I wants to know all the details of how the parents like things to be done and will also provide plenty of details on what I do with the children when the parents are out.
I always let the parents know where the children are and I can be contacted at all times. late.

I will tidy up after the children i look after throughout the day and won’t need to be asked to do so, although any other chores and household tasks may need to be requested to be done by the parents.
I will have a plan to act in an emergency and will ideally be trained in CPR or be willing to learn.
I understand the importance of nutrition for children and can and will make meals for them.
I also have A lot of excellent references and will seek to maintain lifelong relationships with the families i work with.
This is what makes me such a great nanny.
