TrustLine is the California registry of in-home and license-exempt child care providers (babysitters and nannies) who have passed a background check.  TrustLine was created by the California Legislature to give parents an important tool to use when selecting a caregiver for their children.  It is the only authorized screening program of in-home and license-exempt caregivers in the state with access to fingerprint records at the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI and access to California’s Child Abuse Central Index.  TrustLine is endorsed by the California Academy of Pediatrics.  TrustLine can be reached at 1-800-822-8490 or
