Fingerprinting

Starting June 1, 2021, the $30 fee for child care staff FBI Fingerprint-Based Background Checks is covered by the Early Childhood & Family Support Division. All child care staff (all ages) and household members (ages 18 and up) are required to complete a satisfactory FBI fingerprint background check for licensing. These FBI checks need to be conducted pre-service and every 5 years after that. This is the memo from the state.

Beginning October 1, 2021 all newly hired child care staff will need to have satisfactory FBI Check results cleared before they are allowed work in a child care facility.

Child Care Resources offers in-office fingerprinting services by appointment only. Please contact us at 406-728-6446 if you wish to schedule an appointment.
