Support Background Checks for Child Care Providers

Currently, there is no national safeguard to ensure that the more than 11 million children in child care are cared for by providers without a criminal record.

As parents, we want our children to be safe in child care. A comprehensive background check is the only way to ensure our children are in the care of safe people.

We urge Members of Congress to support legislation that ensures background checks for child care providers include:

A fingerprint check against state and federal records
A check of the sex offender registry
A check of the child abuse registry

Children need safe child care working families depend on it. Together we can show policymakers where the American people stand to protect our children.
