DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service)

At Nannyplus Household Staff Ltd we firmly believe that childcare professionals serious about their status should undertake to have themselves verified by the DBS. This is something that any professional childcarer would see as a benefit to their professionalism towards working with children; it offers additional peace of mind to employers. Working with children requires an 'Enhanced' DBS Check. We have linked up with an organisation to facilitate these checks.

Benefits to Employers

There is also security in the knowledge that your employee has not been convicted of an offence of theft and therefore in theory your possessions and home should remain safe.
