OEC recognizes that child care services are essential and that the public health emergency has created additional fiscal burdens for providers. Background checks are vital and required to help ensure safe care.

After a careful review of agency fiscal resources, Commissioner Beth Bye is pleased to announce that the CT Office of Early Childhood will continue to cover the $88.25 per staff person and $86.25 per volunteer for applications postmarked or digitally submitted on or before APRIL 1, 2021.
