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!

Ravenswood, Chicago$12/hr  |  1 kid
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.

We have a wonderful bi-lingual nanny that has been a dedicated and flexible care taker for our 2yo son and 5mo old daughter since my oldest was born. She has 3children and loves our kids as her own. I think she is a certified baby whisperer as she has had a phenomenal influence on our kids by creating a calming loving environment with consistent routines and attentive early childhood education.

Kenwood, Chicago$15/hr  |  1 kid
I am a nanny to a beautiful 7 months old girl in the Hyde Park area and I'm currently looking for another family in Hyde Park/Kenwood with a child in the same age range (6 to 10 months). I would like to find a play partner for her and foster an environment where they can encourage each other to eat solids, babble new sounds and learn from each other. I would like to work with another family that takes covid very seriously.
I currently work from 9 am to 3pm but this time will change to 8 am to 4 pm in November.

Chicago Loop, Chicago$20/hr  |  1 kid
We're a family of 2 physicians with an 11mo boy and an absolutely amazing nanny (who was a pediatrician herself) and the couple we're currently sharing her with is moving away in June. She's usually here for around 45-55hrs a week, depending on our work schedule (as early as 6am and as late as 7pm) and we pay her $1000 per week for that (so your share would be $2k per month). No pets or smokers in the household, and it's a large and sunny 2-bedroom that's all babyproofed already. I'm a resident at Northwestern and my wife is a resident at Rush, so our work days are pretty long, but we could drop our boy off at your place and have our nanny come there if that's best for scheduling.
Please reach out if you're interested and we can talk more!

Chicago$20/hr  |  1 kid
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.
