Childcare Fingerprinting Services
Protection is key when it comes to childcare. There is absolutely no doubt in everyone’s minds that children need to be safe and well cared for at all times. Childcare providers have some key responsibilities associated with protecting children and keeping them safe. All childcare providers are mandated by the state of Maryland to have all their employees — anyone coming into contact with children — to undergo a background check. As a result, we at FYI Fingerprints provide our live scan fingerprinting services to make the process a lot easier and seamless. There are specific guidelines that are required when it comes to childcare fingerprinting services.
