Empathic yoga teacher & doula-in-training who enjoys helping children grow & develop confidence & happiness. I encourage development of self-awareness, healthy communication needs & feelings. I'm enthusiastic, nurturing, patient, organized & creative. I love working with kids on creative activities like art, music & more, as well as kicking a ball around, walking or adventuring! My priority is safety, health and happiness.

I'm a detailed caregiver who notices the unnoticed, can read moods and feelings, and help quell anxiety or fear. I teach healthy coping mechanisms, compassion and critical thinking. I love to see personalities shine through.

My goal is to become as integrated as you want me to be with the family. I feel that a nanny is both a great responsibility and an honor.

I also love animals, can train dogs in both basic and service-oriented tasks, and will happily help out around the house as needed (call me crazy, but I love laundry)!

I come from a large family of 12 children, started babysitting at 12 years old, completed an Early Childhood Education Program in highschool, was hired at a daycare upon completion of the program as an assistant teacher, currently continuing college classes related to child and family relationships, and have nannied full time for two families now, and have babysat regularly for multiple others.

I enjoy the outdoors, reading, and painting. As a nanny I focus on physical activities, reading, singing, dancing, and age appropriate projects. I would love the opportunity to get to know you and your family!

I have been a watching kids since 15 from watching family kids to friends kids. Professional nanny for the past 3 years. I have plenty of experience with newborn/toddlers.

I love seeing their personality blossom and I have plenty of patience. My one cousin that has a 4 yrs tells me all the time. You’re so great with kids have some already but I prefer to give all my love to others. I’m also familiar with Chicago as my family and I grew up in Chicago. I’m very excited to go back to the city.

Hi there!! I've held many jobs, but my favorites tend to be involving watching kiddos realize the world around them & being part of the growth! I'm stoked to get back to teaching & learning alongside kids. My availability is fairly flexible, but I do have another job I will be holding onto for a bit.
Caroline Blehart
Logan Square, Chicago$16/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I am looking for a PT position. I have babysat for over a decade - starting in college through my university's babysitting agency in NYC. After college I babysat for the same family for six years, and sat for other families occasionally for date nights. The ages I am most experienced babysitting are 3m-7yrs, but I am confident I can work with any age.

My mother is a nurse, and I am well versed in basic first aid and have completed CPR courses in the past (my certification has lapsed). I am pro-masks and follow the recommended guidelines for covid precautions.

I enjoy playing outdoors with the children I babysit (weather permitting), and I prefer imaginative play over screens. I love reading kids books aloud and I enjoy nature walks and craft/art projects.

Garfield Park, Chicago$18/hr  |  2 yrs experience
Hi! My name is Kayla and I am a 21 year old college student and planning to major as a physical therapist assistant. I was born and raised in Chicago and just recently moved to Utah. I spend most of my time staying active and taking on new hobbies. I began babysitting at the age of 12 and ever since then, I’ve had a passion for caring for others and enjoyed watching the kids I cared for grow, into amazing individuals through my nannying. I hope to find a great family to assist and build a great relationship with your child!

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Chicago, IL

Before beginning the search for a nanny, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a nanny is the right choice for your child care needs. In hiring a nanny, first, you should think through what responsibilities you expect your nanny to handle. With that information, you can create a profile so that nannies can reach out to you. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your nanny before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location can impact how much you should pay your nanny.

Chicago Nanny Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective nannies, the next step is a nanny interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some nanny interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement in Chicago? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in Chicago?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in IL? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references, and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a prospective nanny, it’s essential to make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your nanny. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around nanny responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming! And of course, as you learn how to hire a nanny, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
