Childcare Background Checks

Employees who are entrusted with the care of vulnerable children and who have access to the privacy of our homes require particular scrutiny. The Childcare/Domestic Services Screening Solutions support informed hiring decisions by accessing national criminal, sex offender, motor vehicle and employment records. They also include a Single County Criminal Search, since most employment positions in this industry have a local focus. This latter search provides a more detailed and in-depth picture of criminals records within a single-county scope.
