Background Screening

Before any nanny is added to our pool of temporary caregivers, a comprehensive background investigation is conducted. In addition to completing an application, having an in-person interview, and providing references, all caregiving applications must undergo a criminal background check.

Our comprehensive background check includes:

  • A multistate criminal court records search. In this search we check for criminal conviction records and arrests. We also check sex offender registries and department of corrections and traffic administrative court records.
  • Local county criminal records search. In this search we check Harris and surrounding counties for criminal records.
  • A Social Security number trace. By reviewing data gathered from credit reporting agencies to gather past addresses and names associated with the card number provided.
  • A motor vehicle driving record check. Your driving history is reviewed for violations.

All applicants must also provide contact information for all previous employers, both childcare related and not, as well as for personal and professional references.

Only upon successful completion of all steps in our background screening process and review of all information can we make a decision to refer you for temporary nanny and babysitting jobs. In addition, as a temporary nanny or sitter, all caregivers must submit to periodic reviews and having their background checks updated while they are accepting work.

Morningside Nannies conducts all background screenings in accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
