Our Process

Here’s a step-by-step process of how our agency works:

  1. Fill Out and Submit our Application
    This form will help us get to know you better and determine whether your perspectives on childcare aligns with ours.
  2. Schedule an In-Person Interview
    Pending review of your initial application, CCN will call you to schedule an in-person interview, during which we will ask follow-up questions to become better acquainted with your preferences and areas of expertise.
  3. Conduct Background Screening and Reference Check
    For those applicants selected to represent our agency, we will conduct a criminal background check and call all professional references.
  4. Attend Our Savvy Sitter Training Course
    All selected candidates must attend one of our Savvy Sitter Training courses, during which you’ll review childcare basics, etiquette, and protocols for working as a Chicago nanny. You will also complete the CPR certification program.
  5. Schedule an Interview
    We will work with you and perspective families to arrange a time to interview. If the first family you meet isn’t a strong match, we will arrange additional interviews as needed.
  6. Select a Family
    Once you’ve found the right family and given either a verbal or written commitment, please let us know.
  7. Stay in Touch
    We invest a lot of time and energy in matching our nannies with the right family, and it’s important to us that you are satisfied with your experience with our agency. Please keep in touch and let us know how the placement is working for you and for the family. 

"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."
