For Parents


Because there are no state or national regulations or standards for in-home care, careful recruiting, interviewing, and reference checks on your part are essential. You can provide your own background check through a statewide program called TrustLine. TrustLine checks for criminal convictions and substantiated child abuse reports. A parent can find out if someone is listed in the registry by calling 800.822.8490 and giving the caregiver’s full name and driver’s license number. Visit the TrustLine website.

The TrustLine Registry is a database of nannies and babysitters that have cleared criminal background checks. It is the only screening program for in-home caregivers in the state. If you would like your caregiver to be screened through TrustLine, we can assist you. You can also call 1.800.822.8490 to see if your caregiver is already registered with TrustLine.
