Our background check’s and screening methodologies far exceed standards of  online nanny websites and  jobs boards. There are many nannies  but only a small percentage meet the criteria to be called a Cambridge Nanny.  We have partnered with Criteria Corp, the world leader in web based pre-employment testing , to test nanny and domestic applicants who apply for employment through their agency. Whether it’s predicting a person’s propensity for theft or fraud or flagging candidates who are emotional unstable or handle stress poorly –  can help families increase their chances of hiring reliable, dedicated,  trustworthy, and emotionally stable employees,

To ensure the best possible caregivers, we lead the industry by providing the most selective, comprehensive, and detailed screening process.  Because the expense associated with our robust background checks final checks are initiated after a family has identified the nanny they wish to hire.   Your offer to a candidate should be contingent upon the successful passing of all background check components.
