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.

We’re looking for another family to join our nanny share full-time (M-F 8am-5:30pm) starting in the middle of September or beginning of October in Ravenswood. The rate will be $12/hour/family plus gas. Our son just turned two, so we would prefer another boy or girl close in age (18 months - 3 years). We’d prefer to host since our place has tons of space for the kids to run around, which is great for winter months when going outside is so difficult. We’ve had our nanny for almost two years and now we’re hoping to nanny share so my son gets to socialize more with another child close in age. She has over 10 years of experience and previously worked in the Spanish immersion program at a Montessori school for 5 years. She is CPR trained, has a driver’s license, her own vehicle, and is fluent in English and Spanish. She arranges play dates and loves taking kids to different activities. She’s very kind and extremely patient. I attribute my son’s kind heart and sweet nature mostly to her. She’s the greatest thing that has happened to our family and I’m happy to share her with another family. If you’re interested, let me know.
