Article: Finding A Nanny in Chicago: Using a Nanny Placement Agency
By Maria Christopoulos Katris, NPN Member since 2005

"Maria Christopoulos-Katris, president of the Nanny Boutique in Lakeview... gives clients a nanny-family agreement that spells out what each party expects. 'Because it is such an emotionally charged environment, nannies sometimes have a hard time being upfront with families that they've just started working with. And on the flip side, for parents who have never had nannies before, it's not knowing what to say or how to say it.'"

"Nannies and families find Nanny Boutique primarily through referrals, the Internet and advertising. Nanny Boutique is city-focused, therefore working primarily with families in the City of Chicago...'It's a very personalized service,' she told The Greek Star. 'We conduct in-home consultations with families, and interview every nanny. We want to be sure they are compatible. We have to be sure that it works for both parties.'"
