Chicago – Chicago Collegiate Nannies is assisting Chicago Parents with finding experienced, college educated and well trained nannies who are willing to work part-time as well as full-time hours. They take a customized approach to pairing qualified nannies with busy families that involves not only interviewing their nannies but families as well.
"At Chicago Collegiate Nannies, we have reimagined the modern nanny. Our nannies are college educated, dynamic, and easily adaptable to the busy, professional family” says Lydia M. Brown, Founder of Chicago Collegiate Nannies. “Because we understand that a family's childcare needs evolve as their children grow, we cater to a wide range of scheduling needs including after-school part-time hours."
As children go from toddler years to school age years, the need for nanny services decreases. Hours of service needed go from all day care (8 to 12 hours) to pre- and or post- school hours, (6 to 4 hours). Many parents struggle with keeping their current nanny or with finding a well-qualified nanny that is willing to work part time hours. While many nanny agencies shy away from placing part-time schedules, Chicago Collegiate Nannies have really become the experts in this field since they formed in April this year.
Their Nannies go through a rigorous interview, screening, and training process before meeting with any families. Each nanny is required to have several years of previous childcare experience, currently hold or be working towards a four-year college degree and pass a background and references screen. After this screening process, they are required to attend Chicago Collegiate Nannies’ Savvy Sitter Training course where they review childcare basics, etiquette, go through a CPR certification program and learn protocols for working as a Chicago nanny.
The families go through a screening process as well. Chicago Collegiate Nannies get to know their families on a more intimate level so that they can match families and nannies by availability, personality, and other unique needs that may come up in the screening process. This process also cuts down the number of nannies each family will interview. Typically a family will be meet 3 nannies before making their decision.
Chicago Collegiate Nannies offers occasional, part-time and full-time placements for a reasonable fee, starting at just $400. Families looking for assistance in their nanny search can find Chicago Collegiate Nannies at www.chicagocollegiatenannies.com or by calling (630) 615-0048.
