screening process

All agencies conduct some form of basic screening –  we add an additional layer to this, putting you completely at ease. We are constantly adding steps to our manny screening process in order to keep up with industry standards and improving our selection process to ensure we are finding the best mannies out there. We are affiliated with the International Nanny Association and follow their strict guidelines. We also comply fully with CALIFORNIA CODES HEALTH AND SAFETY CODE SECTION 1596.60-1596.68 via TrustLine to provide the absolute best protection for your children and your family, click here to see laws that apply to employment agencies.

With today’s technology it’s all too easy for a job applicant to use someone else’s identity, provide false references, or embellish their previous experience. According to some studies, as many as 35% of people who have applied for a job have lied on their resume. When it comes to finding a manny who will spend a significant part of their day with your children, you have to be 100% certain they are honest and trustworthy



We review all candidate application forms and resumes.  We are looking for detailed and qualified experience, along with any gaps in employment. We are also sure to check for spelling errors and grammar.  If there is little care and attention to how they’re presented on paper, this tells us a lot about them as a person.


The resume & application have been approved – now one of our recruiters will reach out to the candidate to chat briefly about who they are and what they’re looking for. In addition to their dedication to childcare, we are listening out for a clear speaking, friendly voice with confidence and intelligence.


During this meeting we discuss everything in more detail, reviewing the resume and application together. A wide variety of questions and prompts that we’ve compiled will allow us to get to know them better as a person, and to gauge their morals and ethics. 


We are consistently identifying how serious they are about a position and discovering any alternate agendas, as well as seeking an idea as to what type of family would be a good fit for their personality.


We use multiple sources to cross-check our background findings. Below is a selection of the checks you can expect:

  • Sex Offenders Registry Search
  • Social Security Number Verification
  • Global Watchlist Search
  • Motor Vehicle Search
  • National Criminal Search
  • Federal Criminal Search
  • County Criminal Search

Other checks we have for additional charge :

Auto Insurance Check | Social Media Check | Credit Score Check | National Alias Search | Toxicology Check | Psychiatric Check | Education Verification.

TrustLine is the only background check authorized by state law to use three databases that private investigators and private background check companies cannot access. These databases include:

The fingerprint records from the California Department of Justice’s California Criminal History System
The Child Abuse Central Index of California
The fingerprint records of the FBI Criminal History System.

We’re happy to answer any additional questions you might have.
