Have been sharing current nanny with my wife's sister's son, but they just moved to another city. We're looking for a family to share a nanny with our active 16-month old - ideally a child of similar age. We're laid back, but value exposing the kids to lots of different stuff - other kids, the outdoors, new activities, music, books, germs, etc. Looking to start ASAP. We live at 14th and Racine - south part of University Village and just north of Pilsen.

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.

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!
