Nope. If they babysat your kids and something happened to your kids which could have been easily avoided with a simple background check you would feel very guilty

Nope. On sitter city and care.com I believe you can request them directly on the site.

Not at all. You can't trust just anyone these days!! (unless its your mom... then it probably wouldnt be necessary!)

Absolutely not. You're entrusting them with your most precious charges.
