We take the safety and security of our families very seriously, which is why we require all nannies who register with Kindred Families to pass a thorough background check to qualify for placement. Temporary nannies are subject to annual screening.

The following background checks will be run on every prospective nanny upon acceptance of a job offer:

  • County Criminal Court Search – 7 Years – Up to 3 Counties
  • Nationwide Criminal Databases Search
  • Domestic Watch List Search
  • Sex Offender Registry Search
  • Social Security Number Trace
  • Motor Vehicle Records Search
  • Education Verification

The state of California has its own background screening requirements for childcare workers through TrustLine. All nannies must become registered with TrustLine upon securing employment. TrustLine screening includes:

  • Fingerprint records from the California Department of Justice Criminal History System
  • Fingerprint records of the FBI Criminal History System
  • Child Abuse Central Index of California
  • County Criminal Search
  • Cross-check with Community Care Licensing
