Tennessee’s monitoring ensured compliance with criminal background check requirements at 28 of the 30 childcare providers reviewed

Description:

The Child Care and Development Block Grant Act (CCDBG Act) of 2014 added new requirements for States that received funding from the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) to conduct comprehensive criminal background checks on staff members and prospective staff members of childcare providers every 5 years. Criminal background check requirements apply to any staff member who is employed by a childcare provider for compensation or whose activities involve the care or supervision of children or unsupervised access to children. Our objective was to determine whether Tennessee’s monitoring of childcare providers ensured provider compliance with State requirements related to criminal background checks established under the CCDBG Act.
