Customized Background Investigations

A customized, in-depth background screening is performed on each SeekingSitters referred babysitter. The investigation is not limited to one state or constrained to a specific time period; the investigation will gather information from the necessary sources required for each Professional Sitter. SeekingSitters also screens members for the sitter's safety.

These background investigations are performed through SeekingSitters in-house investigation company which was founded in 1978.  With over 30 years of investigative experience, they know that pertinent personal character information can be overlooked unless a hands on in-depth background investigation is performed on an individual; therefore, an intense hands-on background investigation is performed on every sitter. This thorough background screening process in conjunction with SeekingSitters face-to-face interview process is how SeekingSitters babysitting service can find and screen the best sitters possible for your family.

SeekingSitters Professional Sitter Screening Process:

  • Face-to-Face interview with SeekingSitters determining that each approved sitter meets SeekingSitters babysitting S.T.Y.L.E.
  • Verification of previous childcare experience including but not limited to reference verification, work history review and education verification.
  • Personal and business reference screening with at least three references personally verified.
  • Personal Identity Verification and Social Security Number Fraud Alerts Verification.*
  • Local and National Sex Offender Network Check based on the Professional Sitter residence address history.*
  • Criminal Record searches based on the Professional Sitter residence address history and information gathered during the investigation.*
  • Fiduciary responsibility and employment credit history evaluation.*
  • Personal Character Evaluation based on several variables identified in the background screening process as well as through the face to face interview with SeekingSitters personnel

SeekingSitters Member Background Screening

Since SeekingSitters was founded, screening family or corporate members has always been part of the Safety First process. We want the Professional Sitters going into a safe home. Every member family will be screened for the following:

  • National Criminal Records
  • National Sex Offender Records
  • Personal Identity Verification

*Hide and Seek does not rely solely on one online database for investigation information as some online information is outdated as well as may contain missing records. Therefore, several sources are researched on every background investigation by an in-house licensed private investigator providing the most comprehensive background investigation for our members.

Driver Record History: Because SeekingSitters does not promote driving while on babysitting events and it is at the discretion of the client and professional sitter, comprehensive driving record history is not a typical record screening of each sitter.  Some driving record history may be obtained during the course of the investigation but if a state driver record is necessary, a driver record history can be performed upon request and charges may apply.
