Can You Trust Your Nanny?

Your children are your pride and joy, and finding someone to care for them on a daily basis is a daunting task. What if you get it wrong? When you hire a private investigator, the decision becomes much easier, and you can sleep safe in the knowledge that your children are being well cared for. Here are three ways a private investigator can find out whether you can trust your nanny:

Thorough Background Checks

If you’ve found your nanny through an agency, it’s likely they have already had a background check, but how do you know you can trust the results? Often, agency background checks leave a lot to BABYSITTERbe desired, and fail to uncover information that could prove vital to the security of your children.

When you hire a private investigator, the background check will uncover any secrets your nanny didn’t want you to know, as well as verifying any details and references they’ve provided to you.

Covert Observation

If you have doubts about your current nanny, or would like to observe a new nanny when they start working for you, there are a number of options available. If the nanny will be taking care of the children inside your property, covert cameras can be installed and monitored; tracking the nanny’s every move, and ensuring your children receive the highest level of care and attention.

This service can also be extended to include out of hours observation, tracking the nanny outside your home, whilst taking care of your children, or even when they’re off duty.

Lie Detection Test

If an incident has already occurred, it’s not too late to get help. Do you suspect your nanny has been stealing? Have the children accused the nanny of something but you have no proof? Lie Detection testing is an effective way to verify your suspicions, you can’t insist they take a test, but if they refuse and you have good grounds for reason, this can help strengthen your case.
