Dear Child Care Provider,
In an effort to keep you up to date on available fingerprinting locations, Child Care Regulation (CCR) has posted a list of fingerprinting locations that are:
- operating with reduced or extended hours;
- or closed.
You can find this notice on the Child Care Regulation Fingerprinting page. For closed locations, the list also includes the nearest open fingerprinting location and the distance to that location. CCR will update the list every Monday.
Additionally, CCR received clarification from the Texas Department of Public Safety that effective immediately CCR must stop using fingerprint results obtained by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). This means that a prospective employee who has previously submitted to a fingerprint check under TEA’s authority will have to submit new fingerprints to CCR if the person has not previously submitted fingerprints to CCR.
Background checks are a critical component to ensuring children’s health and safety in your care. CCR recognizes the many challenges you are facing at this time and appreciates your continued efforts to meet regulatory requirements.
Please continue to contact your Licensing inspector to discuss any issues or concerns your operation is experiencing.
