My name is Jeni and I am an experienced, caring, calm and playful nanny seeking a family or families to work with in empowerment and play! I have an advanced degree in Montessori Education, with 4 years Montessori classroom experience(2 years 1st to 3rd and 2 years working in environments with children ages 1-13), 6 years experience teaching music to youth, 4 years teaching meditation and conflict resolution to youth, most recently leading the children’s program at Insight Meditation Center and also working as a daytime foster friend for children with special needs for the state. I have a car, am in the process of getting re-certified in CPR and First Aid, have my food handlers permit, great references and am registered as a childcare worker with the state. I began nannying last fall and have loved helping foster a fun, safe and warm environments for children and their families.
I love outdoor play, games, integrating learning into crafts, science and art projects, singing and sharing music(I have a stockpile of child friendly instruments), sharing stories and simple snacks. Communication is very important to me, both with parents and the children. I love to work with children on developing skills to embrace and control their emotions in positive ways, helping empower children to “help them help themselves”- Maria Montessori. My ideal family would be a mix of primary and elementary age children. I’m a confident cook, firm believer in structure with flexibility and clear and open communication. I hope to hear from you soon to get to know your young ones and see if we are a good fit!!
Hello, my name is Karla Normington. I am from Brasil and live in Portland since June, 2007. In the past I have worked as an assistant in a daycare and Nanny. I have great references. These responsibilities included:
* Supervision of infants, toddlers, and school age children * Planning and implementing creative activities * Setting up play dates * Driving children to and from school and other activities * Providing a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment * Attending to physical and emotional needs of children * Helping children with daily routines such as toileting, dressing, eating, bathing and sleeping
*Cooking healthy Brazilian/American meals
After working for years as a Nanny I decided to open my in home day care that will be running for me . The day care will offer full- and part-time enrollment. . We are a full Portuguese immersion program. All meals and snacks will be included (I will provide healthy made from scratch food for the children everyday), as well a detailed curriculum outlines each week, periodic assessment of your child's development and photos to document your child's experiences away from home. The environment is safe, clean, friendly, and inviting! There is a large indoor and outdoor play area full of toys to increase their thinking skills. The toys I have are all educational crafts, puzzles, books, games, toys, etc. So even as the kids are playing, they are learning. My goal is to provide a loving, happy, educational and safe environment for children. I strive to enrich each child with a love of learning, positive self-image, and a sense of creativity and imagination. I hope to create a nurturing environment to promote creativity! I try to recognize teachable moments throughout a daily schedule. I incorporate music, art, and stories in a daily routine! The first language spoken in our day care is Portuguese. We will bring and teach Brazilian culture without losing the American. Our goal is to teach both cultures showing the differences/commonalities between the two Countries.
Our programs balance child-initiated and activities, nutritious meals, snacks, rest time and outdoor/indoor play.

My fantastic seasonal gig with a superb family will soon come to an end. I am so sad to leave my spirited, sassy, wildly independent 10 month old. I am looking for 24 - 30 hrs/week with a great infant or toddler with equally great parents. In the perfect world, I would provide care 3 days/week for 8 - 10 hours per day. I am available to begin Sept. 15 and my rates start on a sliding scale of $14 - $17/ hour. I live in North Portland and prefer to work in the North and North East neighborhoods. However, if you feel like we are super in line with our care giving styles and may be a superb fit, contact me anyways.
About me: I am a childcare wizard with over 10 years of experience. I have the most experience with little ones 5 months to 3 years of age. I have a background in teaching (pre-K - 12th grade), from language classes to special education to outdoor education. My experience in pre-K included Waldorf and Montessori modalities. I recertified in CPR and First Aid in June and am Trustline Certified (includes a background check). I have many solid references with families I still have relationships with.
About my style: I am an active, creative, and unique caregiver with a good sense of humour. Spending most of my days with little ones, I like to keep it fresh. As a career nanny, parents often ask for my advice in regards to their children's mysterious behaviour. I do not have a textbook childcare philosophy, and enjoy drawing on techniques across a range of styles. With flexibility, I like to work with the parents and children to find something that suites everyone.
I like to explore nature, establish strong attachment and trust through affection, and foster creativity and personality through art, songs, and storytelling. I am a naturalist and herbalist, so most of my outdoor adventures with wee ones involve relating to plant life small and large. With toddlers I like to dance, garden, cook, and have curious conversations. With younger babies my care includes lots of love and touch, baby wearing, floor exploration, singing and reading practice. I have experience working with parents to establish rhythms to support babies in feeding and sleeping. I really believe in none to very little exposure of technology and sugar for children under five. I have potty training experience, and love talking to kids about poop!
I have experience with a wide range of parents, children, and care styles. I am a sensitive caregiver and enjoy diversity, and have loved working with LGBTQ and alternative families and those with unique life perspectives.
Get in touch with me if you think we could be a good fit. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my phone is 619.995.9262.
