Background Checks

Background Check Campaign


Currently, there is no national safeguard to ensure that the nearly 11 million children in child care are cared for by providers without a criminal record. Parents want their children to be safe in child care. A comprehensive background check is the only way to ensure that children are in the care of safe people.
