10 Step Screening Process

We understand that countless parents have a tremendous struggle to find competent and safe caregivers and we are here to help! We recognize that our role as a Philadelphia Nanny Placement Agency is of enormous importance and we take each step of the process very seriously. It’s not easy to become an ABC Nanny – and really, it shouldn’t be! We require a lot from our applicants so that we can feel secure that we are providing unparalleled levels of safety and security for families.


ABC Nanny Source will interview several applicants before we find one that we are able to accept into our database. We invest a lot of time and training into each of our Nannies and we consider each one carefully prior to being accepted. Each Nanny has had at least two interviews before becoming an official ABC caregiver.

However, ABC Nannies benefit and are rewarded too by joining ABC Nanny Source because they are able to secure better positions based on the training and screening we require.

Usually lasts 30-45 minutes

You may be surprised that many Nanny agencies, even agencies that have been serving the Philadelphia and Delaware communities for several years do not require the Nanny come to the agency for a face-to-face interview?

You would definitely be shocked to find that many agencies will only do the Nationwide Criminal background check after the Nanny has been chosen. Which, in effect, means a criminal could have been welcomed into your home! (Report results are provided prior to your interview with the candidate)

Many Nanny positions require the Nanny be at the very least available to drive on occasion if necessary. We feel it is important to know not only their driving record for safety purposes but this also can also be a good indication regarding the responsibility level of the candidate being considered. (Report results are provided prior to your interview with the candidate)

It is a true and very sad fact that there are more applicants then you would think who initially are anxious to apply and get started then suddenly change their mind when they realize a drug test is required by ABC Nanny Source. (Every candidate must pass a 5-panel drug test to even get to the next step of the interviewing process)

ABC Nanny Source takes every conceivable measure possible to be completely sure that the candidates we are allowing to represent our agency are being completely forthcoming regarding their identification and citizenship and therefore social security verification trace is done on every candidate prior to being accepted into our database. (Provided to you prior to interview)

A picture is worth a thousand words! Each profile has a photograph of our Candidate taken at our Agency at the time of their face-to-face interview. (Provided to you prior to Interview)

Candidates who apply to become an ABC Nanny must submit to electronic fingerprinting which is fully scanned into their profile. You truly can’t be too extensive when it comes to your children. We have fingerprints for every Nanny that has ever come to our agency on file. (Provided to you prior to Interview)

Highlights of verification for each reference are provided prior to interview; the reference names and contact numbers are made available to you as well so you have the option to contact the references on your own too if you would like!

Copies of all Certifications are provided to you prior to Interview
