Our Screening Process

Did you know…

  • Not all nanny agencies in New Jersey fingerprint potential nannies, since it is not a state requirement?

  • Some agencies will charge extra fees for drug testing and motor vehicle screening?

Our background checks include:

  • Fingerprint scanning

  • Drug testing

  • Motor Vehicle screening

  • Social Security traces

  • County/state criminal record search

  • National record search

  • National sex offender database

  • Registry that includes ALL known AKAs and aliases in ALL locations where candidates have resided, been employed, or attended school in the last 7 years.

Why not just do an Internet background check?

In general, it is difficult to measure the accuracy of an instant Internet background check.  These are often incomplete, and/or contain misinformation.

Why Fingerprint?

Our background screening is very comprehensive and will do its job, but there is always an extra level of trust and comfort when the person you hired is willing to give you a copy of their fingerprints in order to assure you that they have nothing to hide!


In addition, all nannies must successfully pass the following before beginning in your home:

  • Application and interview process, including pre-screening and personal interview.

  • Verification of legal right to work, education, employment history, and reference checks.
