All prospective nannies must complete a detailed application. Next, an in-depth interview is scheduled. This is done in person, as often as possible; for those who cannot come to our office, we may interview them by telephone. Vermont Nanny Connection then contacts at least three to four references. This helps give a complete composite of childcare ability and personality. Lastly, we conduct a complete background check which includes criminal and driving record review. Of course, this is a very simplified overview of the screening process. There are dozens of detailed items we look for to help determine if an applicant should be referred to your family.
