NANNY, BABYSITTER & NEWBORN PROVIDERS SCREENING PROCESS
The first step in the screening process of the nannies/babysitters/newborn caregivers who apply with us is observing whether the individual has a true passion for childcare. We look only for individuals who believe in the importance of being actively engaged in the lives of the children and babies with which they will be involved.
Nannies, babysitters and newborn providers who are interested in becoming part of the SoCal Nannies team can apply on our website if they meet the following requirements. The applicant must:
Be at least 19 years old.
Have a minimum of two years experience as a childcare provider.
Have three or more previous child care experiences to be considered for an interview.
Hold a Infant and Children CPR certification or willing to obtain one.
Hold First Aid certification or willing to obtain one.
Be Trustline registered or planning to register.
Have a clean driving record.
Other factors that are a plus but are not necessary include:
Experienced with children with special needs
Have experience with multiple kids or babies
All potential nannies and babysitters are required to submit an initial nanny application, have a phone interview, and have an extensive face-to-face interview. The goal of this interview is to ensure that the candidate is highly-qualified and also to learn his or her own personal philosophies on childcare and other interests and preferences. We do this so that we can make a strong match between the family and the nanny.
A SoCal Nannies representative will call and verify positive relations between the potential candidate and his or her previous employers. Three previous childcare experiences are mandatory as personal references
