Ensure your children are safe when hiring a nanny.  The job-specific Nanny pre-employment test reveals who your candidates really are.

Purpose: You need to hire a nanny or au pair that is kind, considerate, ethical and safe. They deal with the most precious of things: children. Why take a chance with nanny hiring? This online personality test enables you to find the super nanny that you seek.

What the Report Gives You: A graphical display of scores of areas covered , explanation of aptitude results, list of strengths and developmental concerns, and suggested interview questions.

Testing Process: Online personality testing provides immediate reporting. Proctoring is desirable but not required.


  • Testing for aptitude can provide useful information on how much complexity your nanny can handle. If you and your spouse are well educated, hiring a nanny who is slow to learn or easily confused can be very frustrating. You probably want to provide an intellectually-rich experience for your child, but if your nanny is below average cognitively, you will probably be disappointed with his/her job performance. We recommend either the General Reasoning Test or the General Cognitive Aptitude Test to give you a quick assessment of mental capacity.
  • If you represent a company that places nannies, please contact us to learn about ways that we can customize the nanny test for your needs.
  • In addition to the nanny test, you may want to use a second evaluation that provides in-depth information about potential mental health problems. We recommend the PAI (Personality Assessment Inventory), which is a well-researched, highly validated clinical test that provides an in-depth interpretive report. If you want to do a thorough job of vetting your nanny candidates, a positive PAI report can provide you with a great deal of confidence that you are making a wise hiring decision.  (Note: The PAI is a C-Level assessment that may only be administered by trained professionals.)
  • Please contact us directly if you would like to have a licensed Clinical Psychologist do a telephone interview with your candidate to evaluate any potential mental health issues.  Our Clinical Psychologist would spend 1-2 hours on the phone with your candidate, then would also call you to explain his/her conclusions from the telephone interview, as well as any test results from the nanny test and the PAI.

Validity Information: Available upon request.
