Hello! I'm a pediatric nurse looking for a reliable nanny to care for my 3 children (ages 10, 9, and 1) while I'm at work. Drivers license and a car is a must. I need someone who can care for my 3 kids at home during the summer and be able to drop off and pick up my 2 oldest from school during the school year. My oldest has asthma other than that they do not have any other medical needs. We are a fun and laid back family. The kids like to play outside when its nice and there is a pool down the street from us you can take them to until we open ours in our back yard. Look forward to finding someone responsible and reliable to become apart of our family :)

Hello! We are a Lincoln Park family in search of a nanny share. Below is a quick summary of who we are and what we are looking for; if interested in learning more about us or sharing a nanny please reach out. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Coverage needs: we’re looking for full time nanny care with care ranging from approximately 8am-6pm (start/end times can be flexible to ensure the schedule works for everyone).

Nanny preferences: we’d prefer an experienced nanny who specializes in infant/newborn care. Ideally they would be fluent in English, but speaking Spanish in the household is encouraged!. We’re looking for someone who can not only physically care for our child and keep her safe, but also help her learn and grow socially. We require a non-smoker.

Start date: we are first time parents expecting a baby girl in October, so ideally looking to start a nanny share in February 2018 (start date is flexible if it’s a great fit).

Location: we live in Lincoln Park directly across the street from North Pond, so there’s lots do with little ones; great access to the zoo, walking trails, and multiple playgrounds. We live in a secure building (key fob entry required) with friendly neighbors. Management staff is always available if help is needed, with some living directly on site. We’re happy to host at our home, but open to sharing that responsibility as well.

Our ideal partner family: looking for a family that has a child relatively close in age, is active, health conscious (non-smokers) and close in location. We'd prefer no pets if possible, but are open to smaller dogs. We’re open to partnering with a family that already has a trusted nanny or working to find one together.

About us: we’re outgoing, active professionals who both work downtown in the loop. We have a lot of friends who have had very positive experiences nanny sharing with the other couples and their little ones becoming friends. We’d love to find the same experience.

We are looking for a nanny that will care for my infant along with my friends infant who will be the same age! Start date around May 2020!
The Jordan Family
Ravenswood, Chicago$17/hr  |  1 kid
Hi! My husband Chris and I are expecting our first in mid-October. We are looking for a full-time nanny share arrangement starting late January.

We live in Ravenswood and would be looking for a family in or near that area. We are more than happy to host, or to split time between both houses.

A little about us: we're both originally from the Midwest and have made Chicago our home for the last decade. My husband commutes to the suburbs for work and I work downtown. We are both in our mid 30s, and love traveling, getting outside ... and food!

We're so excited for this new chapter of our lives and can't wait to meet our little one this fall.

Ideally we would find a family that is not too far from our place in Ravenswood, and is looking for a similar full-time nanny share engagement that starts in early 2020.

We are willing to host some or all of the time, as we have space for the little ones. Ideally we would find a family with a child who is similar in age (ours will be 3 months in January). We'd also like to find a family before locking in a nanny, so that we can find someone that works for us both.

Please contact us you are interested!
Thanks,
Brit & Chris

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Chicago, IL

Before you start looking for a nanny job, it's essential to learn about the different types of nannies and how they compare to each other so that you make sure you’re looking for the right opportunities.

The different types of nanny jobs have different nanny responsibilities. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. However, in general, a nanny is responsible for making sure the children's needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to make sure your expectations are aligned with the family.

There are temporary nanny jobs, even seasonal nanny jobs like summer nanny jobs. Beyond seasonal and temporary nanny positions, there are differences between full-time and part-time nanny jobs. The primary difference being the number of hours you spend at your nanny job every week. For full-time nannies, there are options for live in nanny positions and live-out positions in Chicago. Live-out positions are more common, but each family has their own set of needs that require different types of care, and live in nanny positions can be exactly what some families want. If you're looking to explore live in nanny positions , it's even more 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 a Nanny Job in Chicago, IL

Once you start connecting with prospective employers, the next step is a nanny job interview. Here is a list of some nanny interview questions to prepare for:

  • What do you think children like best about you?
  • What kind of activities will you do with children this age?
  • How do you handle problems that arise behaviorally and emotionally with kids this age?

Beyond answering 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.
