Flexible Childcare Positions for Sitters or Nannies | Chicago Super Sitters

Chicago Super Sitters

We are looking for energetic, fun, reliable sitters to join our roster. We work with many students, artists, actors, and dancers who need a flexible schedule that allows them to pursue their passion. If you have consistent childcare experience (with non relatives) and you enjoy being around kids of all ages, we want to hear from you! For the most part, our families live in the Loop and north side neighborhoods and a car is not necessary for most of our gigs.  We value transparency and safety, so we ensure that both our families and sitters feel comfortable when they are meeting for the first time! We value diversity, and we are proud to work with sitters and families from all backgrounds. We are the only childcare service that provides support and advocacy 7 days a week, and we welcome feedback from our sitters during the screening process and beyond.


At Chicago Super Sitters, we know your schedule may change week to week, so if you want to work 2 days for one week and 5 days the next, that's ok! As long as our sitters are reliable and openly communicate about any schedule changes, we are very open to working with whatever suits your needs. The hourly rate is typically $15-$17/hr, you are paid directly from the parents, and the rate can increase depending on the number of children and the duties required. There is a 3 hr minimum for each gig, so if you are watching one child, the very minimum you will make on a placement is $45, though typically parents book for longer periods of time.

Skills & Qualifications: 
  • CPR Certified (or willing to be)
  • Must be able to provide 3 childcare references (non relatives) and 1 professional reference (can be outside the childcare field)
  • Willing to work at least 4 days a month (but hopefully more!)
  • Open to working with diverse families that includes biracial couples, gay parents, single parents, and blended homes
  • Willing to have a background check run
