Start the Nanny Hiring Process

  • Getting Started: You can start a Mom’s Best Friend Chicago nanny search by completing a Client Application, submitting the membership fee and signing the Client Agreement (outlines all fees, policies, etc.). If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Sjolseth at or 312.786.9700.
  • During the Search: We will begin sending you a select group of wonderful, pre-screened candidates to interview that match your search criteria. You will provide us with feedback on each candidate in order to tailor the search to further meet your needs, and bring one or two of the candidates back for “trial time” to observe them in action as part of a working interview.
  • Hiring: After a choice has been made, you will extend an offer to your nanny (remember to speak in terms of “gross pay” not “take home” or “net pay” when negotiating salary). Once your nanny accepts your offer, you will fill in our nanny employment agreement template, including specific about the duties, compensation, and terms of employment. The Referral Fee is then due for the referral of your nanny.
  • Ongoing Support: Mom’s Best Friend is available to meet your needs before, during and after you hire a nanny through our service. Please feel free to call us if you need ongoing support, advice, sitter services or forms (for monthly one-on-ones, reviews and more).
