Our PI takes the utmost care by investigating nanny candidates through numerous databases, both digital and physical, using all known names and places of residence to verify identity and history. Our partner provides a concierge level of service to allow us to screen childcare providers using a variety of resources, both public and proprietary. Our PI thoroughly follows records to obtain county court documents and establish a federal, state, and local investigation of the individual. Our PI is licensed with the state of Washington as an investigation agency that has far exceeded the state’s training criteria for licensure. In addition, our partner is a proud member of the Washington Association of Legal Investigators and the National Association of Professional Background Screeners.

How does the Nanny Background Screening at Starling Agency differ from other services?  

We offer an extensive, easy to read and measurable dossier that reflects any criminal and civil records found both nationally and locally, the source and date they were found as well as educational verification on university-level coursework, certifications and degrees. All reports are compliant with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and require signed consent from the nanny. Nanny Background Report FAQ answered by Starling Agency’s private investigator.
