Consider the best option for your family!

We understand that it is an extremely personal decision to find the right avenue for selecting and hiring a professional nanny. To ensure that you are sure you are only being presented with the most qualified and skilled caregivers, let’s explore some frequently asked questions to identify what is most important to your family.

Answer: ABC Nanny Source - look below for reasons why!

Hundreds Apply
Extensive Interview

Extensive Interview
Only the Best Accepted


Question: Is it important for your family to only invite into your home, nannies who have already met with and been interviewed face to face by a trained staff of professionals?

Concern with Online Searches: Online resume searches have your family sifting through endless unqualified candidates who have likely already been denied by ABC. There is really no way to know who you will be meeting with when searching an online database. Many online resume searches allow absolutely anyone to join with no prior screening or filtering. You cannot obtain a clear understanding of a candidate’s professionalism, personality, or background solely by a self proclaimed written post.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: Our ABC staff evaluates our nannies face to face. Staff takes into consideration punctuality, preparedness, and professionalism of all applicants. ABC staff pays extreme attention to all details, right down to the candidates smile and handshake! We make sure to only represent the most qualified caregivers. We look specifically for professional individuals who show enthusiasm, integrity, and articulation in describing their past experiences. Our staff looks for character traits that are highly valued such as honesty, friendliness, reliability, and adaptability to the changing needs of children in any environment. We have a slim 10% acceptance rate of those who apply for representation.

FULLY Comprehensive Criminal Background Investigations

Question: Is it of importance to your family that all considered candidates have been cleared by a criminal investigation before bringing them into your home?

Concern with Online Searches: Database searches offer candidates with credentials that may have been altered or are currently out of date. An online database typically doesn’t screen for criminal offenses in their applicants leaving you to be concerned for the safety of your family.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: We are proud to say that our 10 step screening process is unparalleled in the industry and we conduct the most extensive background search in the country on each of our ABC Nannies. You will hire with ease knowing that every nanny that is represented by ABC has been thoroughly investigated with a Nationwide Criminal Background Search. ABC will provide your family with scanned electronic fingerprints, as well the results from our criminal background search. You can be assured that each nanny proposed by ABC has an impeccable history and is superior in qualifications.

NO Driving Under the Influence

Averting Disaster



Question: Is it crucial to your family that each nanny you are considering is a safe and reliable driver?

Concern with Online Searches: Online searches leave it to the candidate to decide whether or not to disclose this important information. Past violations, accidents, and tickets are not even taken into consideration and the information is not given to potential employers.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: ABC acquires each individual’s driving motor vehicle report prior to presenting the candidates profile to any family for consideration. The results of this clearance show that our applicants live by a certain level of responsibility. Your family will be made aware of any moving violations, speeding violations and accidents that might blemish an applicant’s record. Any criminal offenses such as driving under the influence will disqualify an applicant from representation at ABC. We provide only the most honest candidates for your consideration.

NO Substance Abuse

Question: Is it important to your family to know that each nanny you are considering is not under the influence of an illegal substance?

Concern with Online Searches: This crucial information that most families would see as a most important question before hiring a nanny is too often overlooked. This may be a sensitive subject to bring up on your own while interviewing a nanny. An online database will not be able to provide to you information regarding an applicant’s personal life which may harbor details of a history of drug abuse. As a parent you would never want to invite a drug user into your home that could influence your children and their safety.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: ABC works in affiliation with Quest Diagnostics to conduct a 5 panel drug test on each nanny prior to being accepted for representation. We understand that caregivers under the influence of illegal substances are not fit nor should be trusted to be near your children. The results of this test show any traces of marijuana, opiates, PCP, cocaine, and amphetamines. Being healthy, dependable, and responsible are all traits that are expected of ABC caregivers. We know that as a parent you need a nanny who can not only care for your children, but will also be a positive role model for them as well. ABC will be sure that you will only be presented with candidates possessing commendable qualities who will provide a safe environment for your family.

FBI Submissible Prints

Electronic Fingerprinting

Question: Is it important to your family that each individual you are considering has been fingerprinted?

Concern with Online Searches: The only way to obtain a candidate’s fingerprints is to meet with them in person and physically scan their prints. There is no way to do this process through the internet.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: Each nanny must provide proper identification prior to submitting to the electronic fingerprint scanning. Extensive equipment and technology is on site at each ABC recruiting location as well as trained professionals who take great care in obtaining each nanny’s personal information. Each nanny’s fingerprints are saved in our database and made available to you upon hire.

Verification Group

Question: Do you value excellent experience in your nanny that has been verified and suits your family's needs?

Concern with Online Searches: Exaggerations and embellishments are easily applied when candidates create their own resume. Of course resumes are important for any candidate seeking employment, but there is no evidence to confirm the details of their childcare experience.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: ABC Nanny Source requires that each nanny provide 3 verifiable childcare related references that are recent, relevant, and exclude their own family members. We also require 2 personal references so that our families can get a genuine sense of the
candidate’s character and personality. We have an entire Verification Department dedicated to validating all information provided by the nanny. The verification team reaches out to all references to verify the information provided. This validates that not only are our nannies expert in their qualifications, but very trustworthy as well.

Question: Is it critical for your family to employ a nanny who is legally authorized to work in the United States? Is it also important that they have verified identification?

Concern with Online Searches: Identity theft is a common issue. There is no way to know that the person you are corresponding with from your online search is indeed honest. This can expose your family to many dangerous situations and allow a virtual stranger to have access to all important facets of your life.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: To ensure that the candidates you are presented with are of legal working status in the United States, we require that they have proper identification. We run a full social security verification trace to verify that all candidates presented to you are void of fraud. ABC Nanny Source always has their information verified with state officials as well for an extra precaution.

Question: In the event that a life threatening situation were to occur, wouldn't you feel more at ease knowing that every candidate you meet with has been professionally and extensively trained?

Concern with Online Searches: Online applicants often times lead you to believe that they have been trained in first aid or CPR, but frequently, these certifications are long expired and do not include all necessary training for your family’s safety

ABC Nanny Source Solution: When it comes to providing a safe environment for your children, ABC Nanny Source knows how important it is to have a caregiver professionally trained to know what to do in an emergency situation. We have verified that every nanny has a CPR certification that is current and not expired. This ensures that if the unexpected were to happen, you nanny would be fully prepared.

Question: Is it critical for the nanny you are considering to be committed to spending a minimum of one year employed by your family?

Concern with Online Searches: Too often families use online searches and hire a person who is not dedicated to being a professional and reliable nanny. You may unfortunately hire an individual who is transitioning to the field they truly wish to work in who views the nanny profession as a means of employment for a short period of time. Once the candidate obtains their goal, they may leave your family without a moment’s notice and you are left without proper child care. This information is up to the candidate to disclose in an online search, so you may be very unaware of your nanny’s intention to leave after only a few short weeks.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: We know that stability and reliability in childcare is of great importance to any family. This is why we have our nannies commit to a minimum of one year of care for your family. We do not accept candidates that are in a transitional period of their lives and know that they will not be able to work for an extended period of time with your family. Many of our nannies are looking for employment far beyond the one year commitment, but you can be confident that your childcare will be stable for at least one year.

Question: Is it important to your family to have a team of trained professionals answering any questions you may have throughout your experience with an ABC Nanny Source? Wouldn’t you feel it is also pertinent to have a personal consultant to answer queries about performance reviews and pay increases?

Concern with Online Searches: Once you have paid a fee to review the overwhelming amount of applicants, there is no personal, custom, or professional advice given. You are left to use your best judgment to find a suitable nanny among many unqualified candidates.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: Although our process is extremely efficient, ABC Nanny Source will follow up with you and be by your side every step of the way with advice and resources to best meet your family’s needs. We make sure to keep in touch to assess that the nanny hired is meeting all expectations. This is a valuable asset that is appreciated by many parents. We are so confident in every placement that we offer a full one year guarantee as protection in the event that your family would need a replacement nanny for any reason.
