Hundreds Apply
Extensive Interview
Only the Best Accepted


Question: When you are considering nannies to hire, is it important to you that they have been through a thorough identity verification process?

Concern with Online Searches: Though an online search will yield hundreds of different results for you to choose from, there is no assurance who you will be meeting with from a database search. Many online resume services allow any individual to post their information without any screening or filtering done by the company. Online resume searches will have your family embarking on a unreasonably time consuming project of combing through the hundreds of applicants that have had NO type of verification and document analysis whatsoever. An online resource will not guarantee legitimate candidates for your consideration.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: The staff at ABC Nanny Source sends each nanny to an outside company who will verify their identity. The initial step is to conduct an analysis of their provided government issued ID. After this, they will then be presented a series of questions that will be used as a starting point for verifying their identity based on past facts both public and private. Utilizing this method, we can be confident that the nanny that is presented to you is surely the same nanny that has sucessfully passed the background checks that have been performed.

Averting Disaster

Question: How can you be aware if a candidate is abusing illegal substances that is dangerous to your family?

Concern with Online Searches: Online resume searches do not conduct drug screening leaving you to trust the honesty of the candidate’s written post in your decision. While this may not be your first question when dealing with potential caregivers, it is undoubtedly an important underlying factor that some families sometimes take for granted. Unfortunately many individuals will be dishonest in their activities, not considering the danger they represent to children and the impression they would make as a role model and influential person in a child’s life.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: It is mandatory that each nanny considered for acceptance by ABC complete a full panel drug test conducted by Quest Diagnostics prior to representation. This report discloses to ABC absolutely any traces of substances such as cocaine, amphetamines, opiates, marijuana, and PCP’s. We understand completely the implications that come with drug use and take our drug testing policy very seriously. A healthy and responsible individual is essential to be an equally dependable and professional caregiver. Deciding to welcome a Nanny into your home is not unlike personally selecting the individual you best want representing all of the positive and commendable qualities as a role model to your children. The danger that any irresponsible behavior poses is too great and ABC Nanny Source is determined that each nanny represented is a trustworthy and reliable individual.

Question: Do you need to be absolutely positive that your nanny is acceptable to work in the United States and has authorized identification?

Concern with Online Searches: Online databases do not require candidates to provide proper identification. There is no way to protect from identity theft online and verify that the person you are connecting with is indeed who the fantastic child care provider they say they are. This can allow for an individual to provide a false history that may be covering up their criminal past. It leaves your family at risk and brings a significant danger into your home.

Question: Do you want to be assured that the nanny you hire is willing to be with your family for an extended period of time?

Concern with Online Searches: Oftentimes individuals who are not professional nannies may consider a nanny position as a means of employment until they find a position in the field they are truly looking for work in. This could put you in a situation where you have exhausted much of your precious time to train a candidate for the role of the professional nanny for your family only to find out shortly after they have commenced employment that they plan to relocate to another area or to begin college courses full time that will drastically conflict with your schedule, leaving you without child care.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: ABC Nanny Source requires that all candidates that are accepted have signed a one year commitment pledge stating that they are seeking a position for a minimum of one year. ABC does not accept any candidates who are in a transitional period and fully know they will be unable to make this commitment to their family.
