We’ve all heard horror stories about children found wandering the streets unattended because the babysitter fell asleep. Or about kids who were harmed or neglected by a nanny.
A background check of your nanny is not overreacting. It’s being safe.
Parents hiring investigative professionals is on the rise. It’s one of the most important things a parent can do for their kids.
Access Investigative Services will evaluate a potential nanny before you hire them. Consider this a necessary thing to do. A good background check includes criminal background, educational background, former employers including other nanny positions, and other common background checks to make sure the person you hire is who they say they are.
Nanny cams are also being used more and more frequently. Cameras can be installed prior to or after a nanny has been hired. Sometimes nannies suspect there may be hidden cameras and are on their best behavior early on. Sooner or later, an unstable nanny or babysitter will show their true selves. Play it safe and install cameras before you hire a sitter.
It can’t be overstated. If you think something is wrong, trust your gut! Very young children and infants are often unable to relate their experiences. Don’t gamble. Investigate before you hire and keep an eye on your children via Smartphone while you’re away.
Access Investigative Services has the expertise needed to check out any person you hire to care for a family member. Access will give you peace of mind.
