Our Staff

Owner & Director

robbin

Robbin Stevenson is a mom of three, ages 5, 3, & 1. This program is a direct result of her struggle to find childcare for her youngest girls. She has worked in many different childcare settings including being the director of an after school program and a lead teacher at a nature preschool. She is currently at a step 8 on the Oregon Registry Online program. She is awaiting verification of her application for step 10 on the Oregon Registry Online program and plans to continue adding to her educational resume!

Robbin is CPR and First Aid certified. She also holds a food handler’s card and has received epi-pen and glucagon training.

In her spare time, Robbin likes to play the ukulele while her children dance, “put up” canned fruits and veggies that her husband and children grow in their garden, and she likes to care for her chickens. She loves rafting down the local rivers, learning about plants and animals native to the Willamette Valley, and foraging for wild foods while exploring the local forests. Robbin and her family can most often be found at community events such as the SAGE concerts, the Fall Festival, and the Farmer’s Market!

Fledgling One Care Provider and Assistant Director: Corin Swartwood

Miss Corin is the mother of two teen-aged boys. She keeps chickens and has __ dogs. She has wonderful gardening skills and enjoys finding creative projects for our Fledglings and Nestlings to enjoy. She is CPR and First Aid certified, holds a food handler’s card and has experience working with children in elementary schools. Miss Corin will be moving into an Assistant Director position. She will be the direct supervisor of the other care providers at The Nest, and when I take my maternity leave, she will assume most of my responsibilities as my family gets to know it’s newest member!

Assistant Care Provider: Heidi Cavalier

Miss Heidi is our Tuesday/Thursday Assistant Care Provider. She previously worked in the Infant/Toddler room at the childcare center in Portland called Childroots which was my inspiration for the layout of our space and the set-up of our care program! She has two young daughters, one of which attends The Robin’s Nest with her. She is a calm and pleasant presence at The Nest. Miss Heidi has many training units in Child Development as well as being CPR and First Aid certified, holds a food handler’s card and is the substitute director for The Robin’s Nest.
