nanny - portland, oregon, usa

POSTED ON apr 30, 2017

We are looking for an energetic, honest, and responsible nanny for our loving, active boys, ages 4 ½ and 6. They attend Montessori School of Beaverton, and are in Primary and soon-to-be Lower Elementary classrooms. The position will be split between two households – one in Cedar Mill and the other in St. John’s. 

We have two childcare opportunities: one during the school year, starting immediately, and one during the summer. The ideal candidate could do both, but we recognize that may not be possible given other obligations and responsibilities, so either is fine too. The times are as follows, with a few exceptions like a Friday or an afternoon off:

  • School year: Immediately through June 14, 2017, 12:30 p.m. until we get home from work, between 5:00 and 5:30 p.m.
  • Summer: June 15 – early September, 2017, All-day coverage, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00/30 p.m.

The pay is $15/hr, plus compensation for mileage and reimbursement for kid “fun” (admissions, special treats, etc.). 

Required: Good understanding of Montessori Education, Oregon Central Background Registry, Up to date First Aid and CPR Training, and Good Driving Record.

Our boys are fun, love being active (particularly outside), independent, and are ready to interact. Our parenting style follows the Montessori method, so Montessorians, or those in training, would be a good fit for our home and family. We value good health, open communication, and a happy, loving, nurturing environment. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone that enjoys kids and wants to join a family that supports the Montessori way.

To explore this opportunity further, for questions, or for resume submissions, please contact Wendy Knabe at knabew@gmail.com or 503.781.3919.
