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 expecting a baby girl (Zella) at the end of October and will need care starting approximately mid-January. We live in Irving Park, within walking distance to Independence Park and the public library. We are looking for a nanny-share with up to 3 children (including our own), Monday - Friday from about 8am to 6pm (although mother has occasional afternoons off). We are searching for an individual who is communicative, creative, engaging, education-oriented, and empowering. In addition to care we would expect that this person leaves the house as clean (or better) as they found it - clean dishes, floor, toys put away, etc. We have 1 old dog and 2 cats, all very friendly!

Irving Park, Chicago$18/hr  |  2 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).

Lake View, Chicago$12/hr  |  1 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!

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.
