Care providers and families are supported through the Upwards app for the utmost ease-of-use of the service. Upwards removes stress from the entire childcare process and helps families connect with the perfect provider!
Are childcare providers background checked?
Upwards epitomizes the trusted name in childcare. As parents try to find full-time, part-time, after-hours, backup, weekend, and overnight care, Upwards has become the leading source for connecting families with affordable, quality childcare providers for years. Many of our caregivers have completed a full background check and are designated as verified in the Upwards app. Parents can filter search results to list only verified childcare providers in their area. They can also request a background check for caregivers who have yet to be verified. Upwards' network of experienced providers is here to support families with their child care needs all around the nation.
