Applicants for Childcare Centers and Family Child Care Homes are required to get a Level 2
fingerprint-based background check before they can start working.
In order to work with a company that is regulated through Hillsborough County Child Care Licensing
(HCCCL), regulated through DCF, all applicants are required to undergo a Level 2 background check,
that includes a live scan fingerprinting process.
HCCCL uses a Clearinghouse that allows the results of
the criminal history checks to be shared with multiple state agencies when an individual is looking
to work with, volunteer at, or contract through any organization providing services to children, the
elderly and disabled individuals. Once you have your background checked, you can move between
agencies (especially those that volunteer for multiples organizations) and not have to get a new
fingerprint-based background check each time.
