local family looking for a babysitter

Engaging and Reliable Babysitter Needed, Close-In NE Portland

When: 3pm –6pm, Monday to Friday with some flexibility

Where: Close-in Northeast Portland (Irvington to Woodlawn)

Starts: September 2018

I need someone to pick up my two children (ages 8 and 10) from school and bring them home, which will usually involve a 2.2 mi drive (or possibly bus ride) and sometimes (if going to dad’s house) a two-block walk. Primary responsibilities include: arriving in time for pick-up, driving children home, supervising some light household chores and a little homework, and then relaxing and drawing or holding guinea pigs, going to the park … your choice.

Must be a safe driver with your own car, valid driver’s license, and car insurance.

About us: I’m a single mom with two school-age kids. I work in math education for a local non-profit close to Legacy Emanuel Hospital. My kids will be in Grades 2 and 5. They love art, the library, Minecraft, our cats and guinea pigs, Steven Universe and Teen Titans Go, and reading. I’m trying to be better about limiting screen time and would love a babysitter who would enjoy taking them to the library, talking/listening about Minecraft, and supporting them in their frequent ambitious and spontaneous craft projects.

If interested please call me, at 503-943-9045

Thank you, Martha Ruttle


After School Nanny needed


We are a fun loving family and don’t live far from Concordia. We have four kiddos. This fall, our middle two kids will be in K and 6th grade at St. Rose School (54th and NE Alameda). We are looking for a Concordia student who could pick them up from school a few days a week (at 3 PM) and hang out with them and do some dinner prep until I get home from work (between 4:30 and 5). We also might have you pick up our 3 year old from day care at 5 pm (in the neighborhood) if needed. We pay $12 an hour. We are seeking someone who has a car and is good with kids.
