Increased background check fees

Last updated August 6, 2020

The processing fees for background checks have increased. Effective January 1, 2019 the new fees (per person) are as follows:

Type Fee
Child care center staff $88.25
Family child care providers, staff, and household members $88.25
Child care center volunteers $86.25

Background check documents received by OEC after 12/15/18 must include payment at the rates above. We can only process documents that include a check or money order for the correct amount. To avoid delays, please make sure your payment is accurate. If you’re requesting more than one background check, please include separate payments for each background check.
