Part Time, starting ASAP

Southeast Portland
1 child: 4 years

We have a bright, brilliant, hilarious just-turned-4-yr-old and are looking for regular part-time care. The dates/times are not set in stone but would likely be 10-5pm several days a week (T, Th and possibly some afternoons M, W, F). Duties and responsibilities: reading, puzzles, drawing, craft projects, music, going to the park, giving snacks, and generally attending to my daughter and mostly playing with her (she LOVES to play!). The ideal candidate is very energetic, experienced, sensitive to preschooler's needs, practices positive discipline and gentle methods (no spanking, no Time Out). Experience in Early Childhood Education/gifted children or psychology or music/art desirable. She is a hoot and will keep you on your toes! References, background check and CPR current desirable. (*Please note, we are not looking to bring her to someone else's home or have the candidate bring their children).
