Criminal Record Checks

Individuals residing at or working in licensed child care programs that were hired on or after January 1, 2014 are required to undergo a national fingerprint background check and obtain a satisfactory determination from DECAL. All employees hired prior to January 1, 2014 will have to undergo a national fingerprint background check and obtain a satisfactory determination from DECAL by January 1, 2017. Beginning January 1, 2019, every individual residing at or working in a licensed child care program must have a satisfactory records check determination on file that has been issued by DECAL within the past five years; a new fingerprint background check will be required every five years thereafter.
