Attention child care providers! Are you in compliance with the new background check policy? The Department of Children and Families (DCF) is making child care safer by ensuring that individuals working with or in proximity to children have not committed violent crimes, child abuse or sexual offenses. Learn more about the new background check process and how to request background checks using the Provider Portal by visiting our Licensing Background Check Requirements page.
