Fingerprinting for OEC Child Care Background Checks

The Office of Early Childhood is partnering with the United Way of CT to provide this free digital fingerprinting service for child care provider staff, volunteers, and household members who are required to complete a comprehensive background check at least every five years.

    • Fingerprinting appointments are offered every week in Rocky Hill at various dates and times, and in community sites as Hosts are identified.
    • Community sessions are scheduled on a rolling basis.  Please check back regularly for updated options at other locations.
      Please email to request information about hosting a fingerprint collection session.


Covid-19 safety requirements for  all appointments.

If you are currently sick or experiencing any symptoms associated with Covid-19,  you must delay scheduling an appointment until you have been symptom-free for at least 14 days.  If you feel sick on the day of your appointment, do not come!  Call 1-800-500-1000 to cancel. Upon your arrival you will be required to:

  1. Submit to no-touch temperature scan. Anyone with an elevated temperature will be asked to reschedule their appointment once their temperature has normalized. Anyone refusing the temperature scan will not be admitted into the building.
  2. Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth at all time.
  3. Maintain the required social distancing protocols.
  4. Only the person being fingerprinted will be allowed into the building. The only exceptions to this are: someone acting as an interpreter, someone accompanying a minor (age 16 or 17 only), or someone providing medical assistance services to the person being fingerprinted.
