Only with written permission.

While some entities, like banks and other lenders, can pull reports without written permission, if done in conjunction with a transaction, reports pulled for employment purposes – which would include a report on a babysitter – can only be done after prospective employer provides notice, in writing, and obtains authorization, also in writing.
