Why should I have my nanny background check and pre-screened?

     Background checks and screenings are the best way to ensure that you are choosing the best domestic employee possible to care for your kids. A domestic employee will be watching your home, pet, or one of the most important person in your life, your child(ren). You are trusting them to provide daily care for your child(ren), in your private residence. Your domestic employee may also have to drive your child to different activities and appointments. A family should be 100% certain that they have a trust worthy domestic employee, and someone they can trust caring for their home, children, and driving their children around. Having a domestic employee that you trust 100% is the best feeling in the world. One of the best benefits of using a domestic placement agency is being able to obtain a domestic employee that has been through pre-screenings, and fully background checked. At Charlotte’s Best Nanny we want you to be 100% confident that we have referred  a trust, worthy domestic employee. Our promise to you is that all domestic employee’s will be extensively background checked. If you would like to obtain a background check on your babysitter hired outside of the agency, for a fee, we offer that as well.

Are all Nannies Pre-screened in person?

     Yes, all of our nannies and domestic employees are pre-screened in person by a placement specialist. Each domestic employee goes through a preliminary in-person interview with Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency. We conduct an extensive interview with each domestic employee candidate to determine if they would be a great domestic employee. The domestic employee then goes through a google search and a social media check to ensure that they are a good fit for the family. We then check the domestic employee’s references, to confirm their work history. Each domestic employee is also background checked before starting a family. Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency offers one of the strongest background checks in the nanny industry. We do not place any domestic employees who have been previously arrested, have had a DUI, or been convicted of a crime. Only the top domestic employees that pass our interview and screening process, and will then go on to be referred to families.

What is included in a background check at Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency?

     The background check we provide you includes a Federal, State, and County criminal and civil records check, Driving record check, Sex offender registry check, Social security number verification, and a Social media check.

     Charlotte’s Best Nanny uses a local private investigation firm, to conduct state-of-the-art background checks. The investigation firm we utilize employs professionals in the securities field. Including members that have led security details for U.S. presidents, Military and law enforcement professionals. The professionals that work at this firm were also trained with top experts from the FBI, Secret Service, NATO, and National Law Enforcement Excellence Centers. They also have a unique insight into background checks, as some of the investigators took part in the development of today’s background checking databases.

Why do your background checks stand out from the rest?

     You can rest assured that Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency conducts a thorough background check that checks all alias’ and names a candidate has had, as well as every state and county they have lived in. The background check searches years and years of a nanny’s background. We have even had tickets show from as far back as 1986. We have confidence in our background checks, as they have proven to be stronger than most any other agency’s background checks. If a candidate is not truthful in telling us their whole background history, we always find out about any arrest or charges before a nanny is hired by a family. We, unfortunately, have had nannies interview with us and bring in a clear background check conducted by other agencies and companies; then our background check investigation goes on to reveal charges, tickets, or arrest. At that point, we have to tell the domestic employee we can not refer them. This is why it is imperative to go with a domestic placement agency that has strict requirements on nannies having clear criminal and civil backgrounds.

Want to drug test your potential domestic worker?

     We also offer the option to screen your domestic employee for drugs and alcohol if you would like us to. All drug screenings are optional and are conducted through Lab Corp. You will be given a detailed report of the results of all the screening we conduct.  At Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency, we are dedicated to providing you the best and most trusted pre-screened domestic employees in the area.
