The Young Family
University Park$12/hr  |  2 kids
Mom Background
Hello, nice to "virtually" meet you! I am a working professional mom with two children. You would be living with just the children and I, because my husband is abroad for a year.

I am seeking to welcome a nanny into our family to help care for the children while I am at work.

Children Background (2)
6 week old - You will be caring for the 6 week old (as I will be returning to work after my 6 week maternity leave is over).

3 year old - An energetic and funny 3 year old boy. Of course he loves to play, but I love for him to learn, so a mixture of both throughout the day is ideal.

Working Hours
You would care for the children while I am at work. Typically my working hours are 9-5 Mon - Fri though this changes day to day. Some days I may need to work until 9 PM etc or on the weekends. Though, when my work schedule changes, the hours are always made up. For example, if I ask you to watch the kids until 9 PM one evening, then you start late for example at noon an upcoming day to get your time back. Or for example, if I ask you to watch the children on a Saturday, then you could take a weekday off the next week. Your day to day hours would contingent on my work schedule, so I would defiantly need a nanny who is flexible, but like I mentioned, we would work together and communicate to make the time up to ensure that you get the time off that you deserve. Your health and having time to relax is important and I respect that.

Nanny Share
I am open to nanny share, if we find a fitting situation for the nanny as well as the families involved.

In addition to general care for the two children, doing curriculum with the 3 year old 1-2 hours per day is also pretty important to me.

Ideal nanny will have a driver's license to take the children to local libraries and playgroups 3+ days per week. Public transportation could work if the nanny prefers that form of travel.

What is a Live-In Nanny in University Park, IL

A live-in nanny provides in-home child care and resides with the family that they care for. They are usually full-time and sometimes support with housekeeping, errands and other household responsibilities. Some live-in nannies stay with their employer’s full-time or they live with their employer’s for a portion of the week and spend the other portion at their home. A live-in nanny schedule can include nights as needed like any other nanny job, however, the employer should always offer compensation for any additional coverage.

Types of Live-In Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in University Park, IL

Before you start looking for a live-in nanny job, it's essential to make sure you’re looking for the right opportunities by learning about the different types of nanny jobs and how they compare to each other.

Most nanny jobs vary in responsibilities and time commitment (e.g. the number of hours worked each week or the length of the commitment). There are temporary live-in nanny jobs, even seasonal nanny jobs like summer live-in nanny jobs. Beyond seasonal and temporary live-in nanny positions, there are differences between full-time live-in and part-time live-in nanny jobs. Given that live in nanny positions can be exactly what some families want, it's very important to create a shared set of expectations around hours, responsibilities, and what is expected of you when you're not on the clock.

How to Interview for Live-In Nanny Jobs in University Park, IL

Once you start connecting with prospective employers, the next step is a live-in nanny job interview. Here is a list of some live-in nanny interview questions you should ask:

  • Can you tell me about where in the house I will live? Will I have my own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, etc? Do I have my own entrance?
  • What are your expectations around the cleanliness and tidiness of my living quarters?
  • What level of privacy can I expect after hours?
  • Will I have a curfew in the evenings when I am in charge of the kids the next day?
  • Can I have guests over during my days off and only with the employers prior agreement? Am I allowed guests overnight?

Beyond asking these questions, families will want you to have your nanny references ready and ask any questions to show initiative. The nanny job interview is an excellent opportunity to get aligned on the nanny job expectations. By doing this, you can get off on the right foot with your future employer.
