Background Checks

Whether you’re hiring babysitters, choosing a doctor, or researching preschool options, you find yourself often asking the same question: “Can I trust my child to them?”  We’re parents, and we understand the importance of trust—especially when children are involved.

That’s why we run thorough background checks on every single teacher, staffperson, and volunteer at The Academy At WellSpring.  And our background checks aren’t code for “just checking the person out on Google and Facebook”—our person inquiries are run through Lexis Nexis, and they include state, regional, and national records (including the National Sex Offender Registry). In fact, it’s the same search that’s used by a nearby city’s police department.  We maintain a zero tolerance policy in the way we use these background checks—no one with a hint of abuse or improper behavior toward children is permitted to work or volunteer in our school. We feel it’s our urgent responsibility to take care of those God has placed in our trust, and we want you to have peace of mind while your children are here.
