M-F 7:30am - 5:30pm

Our little girl, Grace, arrived mid-December 2018, and we are interested in starting a nanny share beginning March 11, 2019 (our daughter will be 3 months old) in the Logan Square area.
We prefer a nanny share with a child around the same age as our little one. We would like to have the children at our home 100% of the time. We do not own pets and are a non-smoking home.

Our nanny, Olga, is experienced with infants, addresses specific needs per family/child (e.g., maintaining sleep and feeding schedules), is infant CPR certified, is very animated in her interactions with infants and has wonderful references and over 10 years of experience. Nanny share price would average $9/10 hour.
The Pritchard Family
& None None
Lake View East, Chicago$20/hr  |  1 kid
We recently welcomed our second son on September 1st and are looking for a nanny share in January. We had a nanny share with our first son and loved it! We hosted the other family for over two years. We live in East Lakeview and would be happy to host again. Our oldest son goes to daycare and will not be home during the day, so the nanny would only need to mind the two little ones. My husband and I both work full-time near the Loop and are looking for a nanny to be with us from 7:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Of course, you could drop-off and pick-up your baby anytime. We are also looking for another nanny and would be happy to search with you as well. If you are interested in discussing the nanny share, please let me know.

& Anastacia Lucas
Avondale, Chicago$17/hr  |  1 kid
Our son, Cole, is 11.5 months old. He’s a happy baby and loves to interact. We’ve had our nanny since he was 3 months. Our last family moved so we are looking for a new family to join us!

Our nanny, Stacy, is simply exceptional. She has her masters in childhood development and psychology and has over a decade of experience. Her expertise and knowledge has been such a piece of mind and she has taught me so much! She is very passionate about her job, hands on, interactive, and is excellent at keeping the babies on a routine. She communicates with text updates and pictures through out the day, always check-ins, and clears anything in question before proceeding.

We’re looking for a family M-F, ~7:30a-5:30p (can be a little flexible with this). The cost is $8.50 an hour per family. We set up a contract with vacation and sick days, expectations, family responsibilities, etc. that all parties are comfortable with.

Our home is very safe. We live in a gated town home community and have a security camera for our front entrance. There is a spacious grass area with in the complex which is perfect for baby pools, bubbles, and fun outdoor activities. There is also a park with in 100 yards.

We’ve enjoyed being the host house and would love to continue in this role. Can discuss if it's a deal-breaker!

We’re excited to welcome a new family to our childcare dynamic!
