How Do I Know if A Nanny is Qualified ?


In this day and age of “Nanny Horror Stories” you can put your mind at ease we have done our do diligence to make sure we are placing qualified, experienced and thoroughly checked VIP’s in homes across Southern California, NY and abroad.

While we cannot speak for other agencies,  VIP Nannies Inc. Household Staffing does the hard work for you by performing an incredible in-depth screening on each of the candidates who apply.  VIP Nannies Inc. Household Staffing spends a great deal of time interviewing potential candidates, performing in-depth social media checks, and follows the strict guidelines of California State  law which requires all caregivers to be registered with  Trustline (fingerprinted).

TrustLine is unique. It is the only background check authorized by state law to use three databases that the general public, including private investigators and private background check companies, cannot access. These databases include fingerprint records from the California Department of Justice Criminal History System; the Child Abuse Central Index of California; and fingerprint records of the FBI Criminal History System Our priority as an agency is to present families with only the very best candidates to care for their children, their homes and lives. (

Before we accept a VIP into our organization we read through endless resumes hand picking each candidate we feel best represents our ideals as a company: education, years of childcare experience and hobbies that provide a more well-rounded individual.  We first conduct a social media check combing through any public profiles on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and various other social media platforms. We then invite the candidates for an interview, always in person, to be sure they present themselves in an appropriate manner. If the VIP makes it through this line of screening, we then start checking all references.

When we receive an inquiry from a family or client regarding a potential job we hand pick the best candidates specific to each clients individual needs. We want to be sure your family gets the best VIP for your needs.  We are here to help your family through every step of the process!
