Screening Services

Already found a nanny but don’t have the time or not sure how or what you should be checking? We offer separate screening services to parents including carrying out DBS checks, verifying previous childcare employment history, checking references and document validation.


Gaining a reference for your nanny is one of the safety checks that will give you peace of mind that you have made the right decision. Most nannies will provide written references from previous employers. It is important to verify those references by talking to the past employers, and asking questions about the abilities of the nanny. We will contact the referees and put together a report for you.

We can obtain and verify two references for a cost of £30, any further references would be charged at £10 each. We endeavour to have your reference report back within 10 working days.

References Fee
Per first 2 references £30
Any additional reference £10

Document Validation:

Driving license, qualifications, DBS, first aid, Ofsted, right to work (passport, visa etc)

All UK employers have a legal duty to make basic document checks on each person they intend to employ based on the Asylum and Immigration Act 2006 . It is important to be thorough and ‘on guard’ as there are many illegal operations providing fraudulent identification and visa’s. Proof of current address should also be obtained. We can check driving licence details and Drive a Child certification if your nanny is required to drive as apart of her role.

Document validation Fee
Driving license, qualification, DBS, first aid, Ofsted, Right to work (Passport, Visa etc) £30

DBS Enhanced Disclosure (formerly CRB)

This is a police check on a nanny, but it also checks to see that the nanny has not been entered on a register as not being suitable to work with children. The ideal is to have a DBS check of less than 1 year old (CRB checks are now known as DBS, the Disclosure and Barring Service). We regularly complete or obtain enhanced DBS checks for our own applicants and can provide this service for you.

Obtain enhanced DBS £75
Update service check £15
