BBB Business Reviews may not be reproduced for sales or promotional purposes.


This company has been accredited with the Chicago and Northern Illinois Better Business Bureau since December 2009, with one small gap.

Cambridge Nanny Group is a nanny placement service which provides attachment-focused childcare. Located in Chicago, IL, this company serves the Midwest and beyond, including Schaumburg, Roselle, Evanston, Winnetka, Waukegan, Barrington, Deerfield, Lake Forest, Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, Joliet, Naperville, Rockford, and Crystal Lake. This company has been in business since 2007 and is a member of the International Nanny Association.

This company matches families to nannies by using the family's criteria of their needs, interests, and schedules in order to understand their particular areas of concern and then searching through their available nannies to find a suitable match. All nannies must have at least two years of professional childcare experiences, and most have advanced degrees related to childcare or teaching. The family then 'meets' the nanny with a pre-recorded video and decides whether or not the nanny will be a good match. Each family and nanny match undergoes a 45-day probationary period before the nanny is paid in order to determine whether the match will work.

Types of nannies include live-out nannies, live-in nannies, nanny managers, after-school nannies, family personal assistants, housekeepers, house managers, multiple specialists, doulas, and newborn care specialists. Activities nannies perform include cleaning up after children, preparing children's meals, running errands for children such as taking them to extracurriculars, devising and participating in fun and safe activities for children, tending to children's injuries, and assisting with medical aid for children.
