New Fingerprinting Rule

All staff of any age and household members 18 years and older are required to complete FBI checks every 5 years.*

Child Care Resources has received our LiveScan machine allowing for electronic submission of fingerprints. If your fingerprints are taken at CCR’s office, they will be processed electronically and submitted immediately to the DOJ. We do not charge for rolling prints, however there is a $30.00 per person fee for the background check.

Please bring to your appointment:

  1. $30 exact cash or money order/cashier’s check (made out to Child Care Resources)
  2. Valid current Government issued form of ID
  3. Know your social security number.

Please note that we are not able to accept checks or make change. If you do not have the money with you at the time of the appointment, we will ask you to reschedule to avoid delays. If you are a provider working at a STAR 1-5 facility, your background check fee is paid for by ECSB.

Just as a reminder, all providers need to have their fingerprints done by the time of your annual renewal. Your time is valuable, we recommend making an appointment ahead of time to avoid a wait. Please contact us at 406-728-6446 to schedule an appointment.

*ARM 37.95.161 CHILD CARE FACILITIES: CRIMINAL FINGERPRINT AND BACKGROUND CHECKS REQUIREMENTS: (1) A fingerprint background check by the Montana Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation is required prior to working in a child care facility and every five years thereafter.
