TrustLine (Background Checks)

You can never do too much to make sure your child is safe

TrustLine is California’s official and most comprehensive background check for in-home caregivers (babysitters and nannies). Since these child care providers don’t need to be licensed, it’s important to make sure you’re placing your child with someone you can trust.

TrustLine is the only authorized screening program of license-exempt caregivers in the state, and has access to fingerprint records at the California Department of Justice, the FBI, and the California Child Abuse Central Index.

Contact TrustLine

You can check if someone has passed the criminal history background check and is registered with TrustLine by calling: 1-800-822-8490

TrustLine is administered by the California Child Care Resource & Referral Network and the California Department of Social Services, and is endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
