A Guide to Nanny Background Checks
Letting Agencies Do the Asking
Where do you begin? A good way is to start with a licensed nanny agency. These businesses typically charge parents a fee, anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, to match pre-qualified nannies with families. Besides finding someone who meets your criteria for days needed, experience, etc., most agencies also run basic background checks on their candidates. These investigations typically include a criminal record check and DMV reports. Some, but not all, also include ID and address history and credit checks. If you decide to hire a nanny through an agency, make sure to find out exactly what their background checks cover, and determine if that’s enough information for your peace of mind.
