Providing The Nurture And Love Your Child Deserves






Our Nanny Placement Process


1. Overview Of Professional Nanny Placement Service


Upon receiving your complete application, our Director of Recruitment will be contacting you to discuss your options and the minimum requirements. If everything goes well, we’ll be scheduling an interview, in person or by telephone. After the interview, we’ll be checking your references before we send your file out to our families. Those parents who are interested in interviewing you will contact you directly. You’ll do an initial contact call, and probably a longer telephone interview, before a family might invite you to come to their home for a final interview/ personal visit. (Yes, families typically pay for your travel expenses to the working interview where necessary.) We encourage families and candidates to spend some time together prior to placement to facilitate a thorough and confident decision by both parties. If you and the family are in agreement, a contract will be drafted between you and that family, nailing down the specific job description and compensation package. There will be some additional requirements that you must complete once you have accepted a position (Criminal and Driving Background Checks, First Aid, CPR, Health Report, Psychological-Personality Profile, & Nanny Training Seminar). Then you’ll be ready to start your new job!

2. Minimum Job Standards


Although each position is unique, families are required to meet the following minimum conditions for placement:


     Separate bedroom and separate bathroom for the live-in nanny

     2 weeks paid vacation, (or other arrangements can be negotiated)

     2 consecutive days off (typically weekend = Saturday and Sunday)

     Minimum of 5 of the major federal holidays will be given, except as provided through special arrangement

        between with family and the candidate

     Meals will be provided (or a food allowance given) for live-ins

     Only domestic duties related to the care of the children will be required, but no extensive housekeeping

        will be required

     Compensation is based on an approximately 50-60 hours/week for live-ins; live-outs are 40-50

        hours/week (Chicago area only)

     Any additional hours and fees can be negotiated with the family

3. A Bit About Salary For Nanny Placement Service


The Nannies of Children's Learning Place is a renowned nanny agency working with the Chicago’s premier families. We can offer positions commanding the highest nanny salaries in the country; all salaries offered will reflect the nannies education and depth of experience. Top candidates can earn over $700 per week, but most jobs start between $400-$600 per week.

4. Can We Help You In Your Search


The Nannies of Children's Learning Place makes four types of placements, Live-in and Live-out Nanny, Baby Nurse and Babysitter positions. We do live-out jobs in the Chicagoland area only, and to be eligible for these jobs you must be living in this area already or have specific plans for where you will live when you move to Chicago. We have Live-in Nanny positions available nationwide, based on family needs. Most Live-in Nanny jobs offer a separate bedroom and separate bathroom for the nanny. However, some of those families have more privacy to offer the nannies: third floor private suite, basement walk-out apartment, and sometimes a separate cottage or suite above the garage. Those nanny jobs available tend to go to our career nannies and are much sought after and competitive to acquire. In all cases, accommodations provided  are for the nanny alone… no boyfriends, husbands, children, or pets would be allowed.


Our minimum requirements for all nanny jobs are as follows:


     BA/BS degree or a minimum Two Years Professional Experience

     CPR/First Aid Certified    

     Ability to make a One Year Commitment

     Verifiable Work References

     Exceptional Personal References

     Fluent in English (Bilingual Available)

     Competent swimmer

      Legal right to work in the U.S. without limitations

     Outstanding Personal Conduct


By “professional experiences”, we mean several things and are looking for more than just casual babysitting references. Long term relationships, professional settings, non-family supervisors, and more than 30 hours per week are obviously more desirable. Teacher, Camp Counselor, Nanny, Tutor, Lifeguard, and Coach are some examples, but in no way would be a compete list, of the types of experiences we consider professional. Relevant experiences should be fairly current and verifiable, at least within the past 5 years.


We apologize, but we cannot help you unless you meet all of these requirements. If you have concern, please  feel free to Ask Us A Question.
