Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours
Number of children2 kids

I have 2 kids, 9 and almost 6. They are both intelligent, and creative. I will be traveling for work the last 2 days of each week, and need someone from about 8PM on Wednesday to 8PM on Friday. The children have school during the day from 8:00-4:30. I don't need anything more than taking them to/from school and making them dinner. No housework other than just the regular stuff the kids did that day. Both Children attend the German International School, and it would be great if you spoke some German, as their homework is primarily in German.
We are not super outdoorsy, but there is a huge park behind us, and the kids love it. They are both interested in technology, and art. My oldest is learning violin (beginner), and the youngest piano (beginner).

The Shaikh Family - Hiring in Chicago

Hourly rate12.00 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours
Number of children1 kid

My husband and I live in Lakeview/Lincoln Park with our beautiful daughter. I will be returning to work in late September and we are ideally looking for a nanny share for approximately 4 months, but are open to hiring a nanny solely for our daughter as well. We are able to host another baby in our condo, however ideally we would be looking for the other family to host due to the fact that our complex has many stairs and we have a dog. The host family would need to be located very close (couple blocks from our home on Lincoln/Diversey) as we will only have a car available for drop offs in the morning, not pickups in the afternoon. My husband and I both work office jobs and would be looking for coverage from around 8:30AM through 5pm, M-F. If hosted at our condo, other tasks would include light cleanup, and taking the dog for a quick bathroom break once per day. Driver’s license and car are required but will rarely be needed.

We are seeking a warm, caring, responsible nanny with excellent referrals and a family that shares our values and a similar schedule. Please message me if you are interested in connecting to discuss this opportunity. Thank you!
