For busy parents with demanding careers, live-in nannies offer compassionate care with much needed flexibility and convenience. A live-in nanny is a popular solution for parents who have long and unpredictable work hours or frequent business trips (i.e., doctors or business executives). In this childcare arrangement, the nanny works full-time and also lives with the family.
Live-in nannies work anywhere from 8-12 hours a day for 5 or 6 days per week. Although they have a set work schedule, they are expected to cover a certain number of extra morning or evening hours as needed. The maximum number of extra hours should be specified in the employment agreement, and any additional hours will be compensated. Live-in nannies generally get time off during weeknights and weekends.
In addition to a salary, live-in nannies are provided room and board, which may be a separate bedroom with a private bathroom, a separate wing in the house, or a separate apartment. As most live-in nannies do not own a car, the employer is responsible for providing a vehicle for work purposes.
MoniCare live-in nannies are diligent, reliable, and energetic. A live-in nanny placement requires more time and resources, so we recommend starting the search for a live-in nanny as early as possible.
Live-in nanny duties are the same as come-and-go nanny duties. We place live-in nannies for full-time positions only. The weekly salary for a live-in nanny is $600-$950 depending on experience, number of work days, and job duties.

A true extension of the parent, long-term nannies provide a safe, warm, and comfortable environment for the children in their care. They are not merely caregivers; over the course of their work term, nannies become an integral part of the family. Using love, patience and individual attention, they teach children important life values like compassion, self-esteem, and creativity. At MoniCare, we believe that consistent quality childcare is essential for every child’s well-being.
Families with school-aged children are most likely to hire a Nanny-Household Manager. Often, this position is a natural progression from an original Nanny position once the children become older and more self-independent, but still require some care and supervision.
An ideal solution for busy families, a nanny-family assistant coordinates and organizes daily family activities. Much like our personal assistants, Chicago nanny-family assistants work directly as parents’ helpers, completing a range of tasks. Chicago families trust MoniCare to provide experienced, professional nanny-family assistants to ensure that their household is running smoothly.
If you want an experienced, educated and creative nanny who can provide a comprehensive learning environment, a nanny-child educator might be the right position for you. These candidates can provide educational activities/setting similar to a school curriculum.
At MoniCare, we specialize in recruiting professional newborn nannies for both first-time and experienced parents. Our newborn nannies can take on a mentoring role in your home or can help integrate your new baby into your family's existing daily routine.
