This report is critical in establishing positive identification on an applicant, and can uncover hidden information. Social Security Traces verify the registrant’s name, former names (AKA’s), current address, and previous addresses.

This database is an exclusive product that searches the largest repositories of criminal records, including sex offender registries for the entire county.  Also included are known fugitive database, homeland security databases, and more than 130 million individual criminal records from national and state agencies!

County Criminal Search for Current County of Residence
A County Criminal Background Check can help you avert violence issues and lessen your liability. This criminal check is done at the courthouse of the county that the nanny currently resides in.  A typical check will show any convictions, as well as arrests, for felonies and misdemeanors. *(Subject to state regulations.)

Reference Checks for up to 3 Former Employers/Families
Ask your nanny for at least three references/supervisors of prior employment or families that she has previously worked for. We will contact every single one of them. We get details. How long was she employed? How did she perform? Why did she leave? Would they hire her again? Do they recommend you hire her?  We have several questions that probe the reference to give accurate and useful information that will help you make your decision.  Our highly trained staff knows how to get information about candidates from references. We will contact the nanny candidate for more references if we can’t reach the people listed or if they cannot provide us with enough information.

Nanny Interviewing Tips

1. Develop a list of questions to ask every applicant. This will help you maintain a uniform evaluation.

2. Require all applicants to bring a resume or employment history for the last five to 15 years (depending on their age).

3. The interview process should consist of at least two (preferably three) interviews:

-The first should not include the children and should involve covering the bulk of your questions.

-The second interview should be at your home with all family members present.

4. If you are still interested in the applicant, running a background check is the next step. If she hesitates or says no, you should rule her out as a potential candidate.
