New Resources Regarding Background Check Regulations

On Oct 1, 2018 the Child Care Development Block grant changed federal policy, requiring the Department of Children and Families to conduct FBI background checks on all regulated child care providers.

SFTA has created a resource packet full of valuable information that can answer many questions about the new regulations, as well as information about upcoming changes, and a Background Check FAQ. The resource packet can be found HERE.
