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 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.
