In Australia, Working with Children Checks (WWCCs) are mandatory for early childhood providers, who must fulfil the full requirements of the state/territory in which he or she is employed. Babysitting agencies also have policies in place to ensure employees undergo WWCCs and background checks. This child-related background check is for anyone who works or volunteers in child-related work. Varying from state to state, the requirement usually includes a national criminal history check and a review of workplace misconduct. It is important for parents to request a potential caregiver or nanny’s WWCC before making a hire.
