There are a lot of
questions to ask
and convos to have
when hiring childcare.

Our Super Guides can help you with all of them
from start to finish!

Super Guides

These Super Guides are ideal
for folks that want to handle
the hiring process themselves,
but ALSO want to be thorough.

We have three different downloadable packages available to help with the different stages of hiring. These packages are new to the public, but have been curated by collecting the skills, steps, and practices that Chicago Super Sitters has been perfecting for over a decade.

We know kids can be hard,
finding them childcare shouldn’t have to be.

Where do I start?
How do I know what I need & want in a candidate?
Where do I look for someone to hire?
How do I write a nanny-job post?

What questions do I (or can I) ask?
How do I make them specific to my family?
What should I want in their answers?
Red and Yellow flags – which is which?

This Super Guide includes a long, very detailed, list of questions and the reasons for asking them (and some SCREENER TIPS). We provide variations for questions, ways to adapt questions to your family’s needs, and extra questions and to ask if you get to the end and still aren’t sure.

Hope to hire them after the interview?


How do I set this up to succeed?
What conversations should we have and when?
What should I have ready for them?
How do I keep it going well after it starts?

This Super Guide includes our ‘Day One Suggested Conversations’ that helps avoid awkward situations later, our ‘Family Info Form’ which has all the relevant household details that any caregiver should need, as well as a list of SCREENER TIPS & Tricks that will help everyone stay happy and on the same page.

Don’t need the other guides because you found your One already? Congratulations!
