All of the candidates that we recruit are thoroughly screened and vetted to ensure that only the top childcare providers represent our agency. At minimum, each applicant must meet the following requirements:

  • Hold or be currently working toward a four-year college degree
  • Have several years of professional childcare experience
  • Provide three previous childcare references
  • Commit to a minimum of one year’s service

If all requirements have been met, our agency will initiate a preliminary phone interview to ensure that prospective candidates’ interests align with the vision of Chicago Collegiate Nannies. We then hold extensive in-person interviews to determine the strongest candidates. Once an applicant has been selected for representation, our agency conducts a full background check, driving record check and contacts the candidate’s references. The final step in our due diligence process requires that all nanny candidates attend our agency's Savvy Sitter training class.

"Lydia and Chicago Collegiate Nannies are exceedingly professional, have been a pleasure to work with, and provide a unique service for families that need part-time help. After 11 years of full time help, I needed to make the switch to part-time help. Chicago Collegiate Nannies took away the headache of trying to find qualified part-time candidates.  The agency recruits, screens and trains candidates. It selected qualified candidates based on my needs and provided me a handful of options to choose from and interview. The process of finding the right person was so simple. Even after making a placement, Lydia continues to call me to make sure all is going well. I highly recommend this agency and will absolutely use it again in the future."
