What does the WWCC (Working With Children Check) icon mean?

A babysitter listed on Find a babysitter, must hold a Working With Children Check. When babysitters sign-up and create their profile, we ask them if they have a “Working With Children Check “ (WWCC). If a babysitter has confirmed that they have a WWCC, you will see the WWCC icon on their profile as ‘pending’, We then undertake verification checks using the relevant State ‘working with children’ websites to verify the that the WWCC information provided is accurate and valid. However we make no warranties or representations as to the accuracy of information provided by the babysitter.

We do not undertake 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:
