There are several different types of Chicago nanny services that we offer. Depending on your needs in both time commitment and type of care, families fall under several types of nanny care:

Nanny Types

Nanny

Our Chicago nannies are caring, highly-experienced, and professional caregivers seeking full-time work with a consistent schedule and long-term commitment. Our nannies are trained to design and implement daily curriculum for your child, encourage their development, and plan entertaining games, arts and crafts, and other enlightening projects. Our nannies’ background is a combination of education, nanny and/or teaching experience, and continuing education hours. Our Chicago Nannies typically make $22-26/hour + employer portion of payroll taxes.

Note: Placements must be 30 hours/week or more, and we are not able to accommodate split shifts.

Nanny Manager

Chicago nanny managers are able to transport your children to educational and cultural activities, pick up your children from school, organize after-school activities, tutor, run errands, grocery shop, provide mature supervision and security while traveling, and pull together a basic evening meal following the family’s favorite recipes. The typical compensation for our Chicago Nanny Managers is $23-28/hour + employer portion of payroll taxes.

Note: Placements must be 30 hours/week or more, and we are not able to accommodate split shifts.

Child Educator

Chicago child educators are partners in your child’s academic success, in addition to all of the wonderful duties a nanny manager performs. These dedicated instructors prefer the learning experience that a private, in-home education offers. Our child educators are mature and nurturing, and provide hands-on instruction through curriculum, special projects and practical learning experiences. They are able to facilitate field trips where the children will have one-on-one exposure to museums, art exhibits, science and math related excursions, and a variety of other applied learning experiences. Child Educators have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, teaching credential (and/or early childhood education specialty or related experience), and instructional experience. The typical compensation is $28+/hour + employer portion of payroll taxes.

Note: Placements must be 30 hours/week or more, and we are not able to accommodate split shifts.

Sitters are available 24 x 7 and the office can be reached during businesses hours, as well as in the events and weekends for emergency services.
