Child Care Criminal Background Check FAQ

What are the federal and state requirements involved with background checks for daycare workers and childcare centers?

Federal law requires states to have policies in place to protect the health and safety of children in childcare. In November of 2014, the federal Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) was reauthorized. This update to the law brought changes for child care background check requirements.

The update includes requiring that all states conduct comprehensive background checks on regulated child care providers. Visit the Office of Child Care’s website to learn more about the CCDBG Act of 2014, find resources for technical assistance and get information on changes to the law.

Should I be doing on background checks employees that don’t care for children?

A comprehensive child care new hire background check should be completed for all potential employees. This includes bus drivers, janitors, kitchen staff and administrative employees. Volunteers in at the center should also receive a comprehensive child care criminal background check. In family child care homes, all adults living in the home should be screened. Checks should be done for each state that the adult has lived in for the past five years.

When should nanny pre-employment background screening be completed?

All corporate background checks should be completed before adults begin working or volunteering with children. In addition, periodic background checks should be conducted even after an adult begins working with children (or for adults living in a family child care home). Your state may require updated background checks after a certain number of years. Check with your licensing agency to see how often background checks must be conducted.

  • A comprehensive background check should include:
  • State and federal criminal history check using the individual’s name.
  • State and federal criminal history check using the individual’s fingerprints.
  • Child abuse registry check (this may also be known as the Child Protection Index).
  • Sex offender registry check.

Based on the existing laws, states will need to meet the requirements for comprehensive child care and nanny background checks over the next several years. Currently, all 50 states and the District of Columbia require some form of background checks for daycare employees.

What are the limitations of a background check for daycare employees?

Childcare pre-employment screening is an important part of the hiring process and helps reveal a person’s criminal history. However, while background checks can be helpful and uncover potential red flags, they are sometimes not completely accurate, and no background check should be relied upon to determine a member’s complete criminal history or suitability as a caregiver.

We strongly recommend that a background check is used as one part of a candidate selection during the hiring process. A child care new hire background check is not a substitute for conducting thorough in-person interviews, reference checks, online and social media searches, obtaining copies of the candidate’s identification documents and conducting ongoing monitoring of any individual you hire.

How long does it take EnCompass to complete nanny background check services for employers?

We understand that conducting employment background screening on a prospective employee is a crucial part of any hiring process and the timeliness of the results are critical. Employment background screening results typically take between one to five business days in most situations. This often depends on the type and complexity of the employee criminal background check an employer is conducting and a variety of circumstances that can affect the timeliness of the results.


Because an employee has greater access to your resources, they are 15 times more likely than a non-employee to steal from you. This loss lessens your competitive edge; it also threatens to put you in the one-third of all business failures that happen due to employee theft.



Owners Jim & Leeanne Mills envisioned making business owners’ lives easier by taking Background Screening, Drug Screening, & Job Applicant Assessment burdens off their plates.

After 21 years of Naval service riding nuclear submarines, we traded in our Navy life and then we worked in the For-Profit Education Industry hiring employees, managers & professors. While hiring new employees our experience using the available Background Check Process proved to be a very time consuming, challenging, frustrating and difficult one.
