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.

Hi! This profile is actually Nicole, the nanny! I made this profile to help my awesome family find another awesome family for a nanny share!

Ive been involved in childcare for over 14yrs and I currently care for a fun, active and spunky 1yr old (15mos at the time of writing this) boy in Logan Square. I have been caring for him since he was almost 3 months, so we've been together for a year.

We would like to have the family we share with be in or near the Logan square area, but with the right family, we can be flexible. I've worked with multiple children from 0-12 yrs so I'm pretty flexible on the age of the child/ren that I care for.

Seeing family I work for lives on the 3rd floor, hence multiple flights of stairs, it would be nice to have a family who would be willing to host at their home most of the time. My bosses are willing to discuss sharing the hosting at their home too.

If intrested, feel free to reach out and I will do my best to get you connected with my family to discuss further details.

I do want to mention that I have a small car (Fiat) that can possibly limit car travel. I do have space for two car seats, but one would most likely need to be forward facing [the child I care for will be rear facing] , so a family with an extra car that I could use would be a bonus! (That is, if your child is not forward facing yet)
Of course I'm always happy to go out and about the neighborhood by foot/stroller, so that's not a problem! Just wanted to give that heads up!

We are looking to start the nanny share sooner rather than later!

Thanks!

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!

We have a fantastic and functional nanny share - but are sadly losing the other family to the suburbs. Our nanny is intelligent, engaged and helps push developmental milestones. She has both babies on great nap schedules, but still is able to get them out on adventures. We are in Logan Square with a 9 month old, seeking a full time playmate.

We are looking for a special family to join our nanny share in August/September as the family we share with is moving on up to preschool.

My husband and I are in our mid-thirties. We went to Big Ten schools, have full-time jobs, and we work downtown. Our darling daughter is 16 months old.

We have been with our nanny, Brenda, for a year. We ADORE Brenda and consider her part of the family. Brenda is kind, warm, and nurturing. She has the biggest heart and cares for our daughter as if she was her own.

We are happy to host the share at our home in Bucktown. The current hours are 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., M-F, but we are open to adjusting if needed. The rate is $20/hr for 2 kids ($10/hr per family) and $16/hr for 1 kid.

Please feel free to message me for more information. Thanks so much for looking.
