5 Best Practices for Screening your Nanny

April 3, 2014 Nanny Background Checks, Uncategorized
  1. Perform a high-quality background check from a professional company.  Avoid free online background checks as they are not as accurate and thorough.
  2. Check the applicant’s driving record.  Is your nanny going to have to drive your kids around? If they are, get a review of their Motor Vehicle Record so you know your child will have safe transportation from school or sporting events.
  3. Check their references.  Have your potential nanny provide references, personal and professional, so you can get a sense of their interpersonal skills and sense of responsibility.
  4. Interview.  Set up an interview with the applicant and ask questions about themselves, their experience/training and their philosophy on being a nanny.
  5. Test how they interact with your child.  Before you hire a nanny, make sure they get to meet your child so you can see how they act with children so you make a good match.
