When babysitters create their profile, we ask them if they have a "Working With Children Check" (WWCC) [or police check]. If a member has confirmed that they have a WWCC [or police check], you will see the WWCC icon in their profile.We undertake some verification steps using the relevant State 'working with children' websites to verify that the WWCC information that members have provided is accurate. However, we make no warranties or representations as to the accuracy or the currency of the WWCC information provided by any member [and we do not undertake any verification of police checks].
Parents are encouraged to ask babysitters to provide their WWCC details [and police checks] and to undertake their own verification and vetting of babysitters. We also recommend a thorough interview and reference checking.
Each state has its own WWCC system:
