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. Duties may include paying bills, sorting mail, running errands, overseeing maintenance work, and childcare. MoniCare nanny-family assistants are professional and educated. They generally have completed a Bachelor’s degree, an Associate’s degree, or several years of college. Typically, they have prior experience as an office assistant, nanny, or household manager. They are computer savvy and comfortable using modern communication technology.
We place family and personal assistants in Chicago for long-term full-time and part-time positions. The hourly salary for a nanny-family assistant is $16.00 - $30.00, depending on credentials, experience, and job requirements.
For a 5 day work week, a daily minimum of 4 consecutive work hours is required (20 hours per week).
For a 2 or 3 day work week, a daily minimum of 8 consecutive work hours is required (16-24 hours per week).
Monika Dinsmone, founder of MoniCare Nannies and Household Staffing, says there's been a surge of interest in blended positions such as nanny/family assistant and housekeeper/family assistant over the past two years. “We work with a lot of doctors, lawyers, VPs—people who have reached a high level in their careers, and they have high standards.” Full Story in Crain's >>

We recruit, screen, and place experienced nannies in permanent positions in Chicago and all of the surrounding Chicagoland suburbs. MoniCare has the highest hiring standards in the industry and refers only the most qualified and competent childcare professionals.
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.
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.
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.
