About Us

North Shore Nannies, founded in 1991, is the oldest nanny agency in Chicago. Our growth and success has come by staying focused on our core business: identifying well-qualified nanny candidates for introduction to excellent employers.

For nannies and families seeking an agency that will help effectively conduct your search, here's what we offer:

  • Our staff has over 30 years of human resource, nanny placement and childcare experience.
  • A proven track record in the Chicagoland market. We place 2-3 nannies per week in permanent positions and fill 35 - 60 temporary assignments.
  • Expert advice and support throughout the interviewing and hiring process.
  • Our promise to listen, gain a thorough understanding of your needs and not waste your time.

Our services:

  • Permanent Placements beginning at 30 hours per week. Fewer than 10% of nannies who apply are selected to be represented by our agency. Families usually interview 3 - 5 candidates, with most successful searches concluded in two to four weeks.
  • Temporary Nanny Care. We have over 50 pre-screened nannies available for temporary assignments. One call to us is all it takes to secure an experienced, engaged caregiver.
  • Background Screening Services. To assist families who have identified viable candidates on their own, we've created a thorough candidate screening package. This provides a "second look" at your own candidate allowing you to make an informed hiring decision.

We look forward to knowing both the families and nannies we work with. We are always available to help talk through any problems or concerns. It is our goal to offer the continuing support and assistance that forms lasting working partnerships. We are here to help you find the best caregivers and the best care-giving situations in the Chicago area.
