Background Check Details

We take childcare seriously. Nanny Lane partners with to conduct fast and compliant screenings through their encrypted and secure databases.

After a background check is conducted, the family will receive results indicating if the nanny passed or failed. Nannies are advised to communicate the completed background check results, and families are encouraged to ask for the detailed report too.

We check for all felony convictions and certain misdemeanor convictions. If any of these charges show up on a person’s record, it’s an automatic fail. Below is a list of the charges we screen for in our background checks.
