ID verification & nanny checks

Safeguarding checks are a critical part of the nanny search process.  Here are some of the steps we encourage all families to follow.

When appointing a new nanny, it’s critically important that the family checks a nanny’s ID, accreditations and references.  And that applies to full-time and part-time nanny roles and also NannySitting.

We have developed an easy-to-follow checklist to support families with this aspect of a nanny search.
