Working With Children Check (WWCC) and Police Check


Do you need to get a Police Check or Working With Children Check (WWCC)? It is easier than you think and both checks are something parents will often expect. So taking the time to get these checks done will be beneficial for everyone involved.

 

For private Nannying as offered through My Super Nanny, such checks aren’t compulsory. However, when working for childcare organisations legislation will stipulate that they are required. At MSN we highly recommend that you undertake a police check, as many parents will request one.

 

Here is a list below of contact details to obtain a Police Check, and to obtain a WWCC.
