When it comes to ensuring the safety of children, most people understand the need for vigilance and strong security. Conducting a background search on potential childcare providers allows individuals and businesses to make sure that all personnel pass a background screening. In some states, it is mandatory that every employee in a childcare facility successfully pass a background search.
Childcare is not limited to schools, naturally. Childcare providers requiring background searches include:
- Pre-school providers
- After-school care
- Community center facilities
Some childcare providers actually conduct additional background checks on personnel who have already passed a basic screening process. While it is possible for a private citizen to perform a basic background screening, most of the private records are unavailable for viewing. However, professional background screening providers have access to databases that private citizens do not, allowing for a more in-depth screening.
Typically, background searches on childcare providers include:
- Criminal record background search
- Department of Motor Vehicles search
- Credit report search
- Social Security Number search
In addition to doing a background check on the individuals within a childcare facility, background searches can also provide information regarding the facility itself, including whether or not there have been any incidents that might have resulted in a suspended or revoked state license.
Guaranteeing the safety of children is of paramount importance and conducting a background search on all childcare providers is an important step in the process.
