This bill provides that as a condition of issuance or renewal of a certificate of registration as a family day care provider, the Department of Children and Families (DCF) is to ensure that a State and federal criminal history record background check is conducted on a person registering as a prospective or current family day care provider, an assistant provider, substitute provider, or alternate provider of the prospective or current family day care provider, or any household member 18 years of age or older of the prospective or current family day care provider. Currently, family day care providers submit to DCF child abuse registry checks pursuant to P.L.1993, c.350 (C.30:5B-25.1 et seq.). Specifically, the bill provides that DCF is not to issue a certificate or renewal of registration to a prospective or current family day care provider if the criminal history record background checks required under the bill reveal a record of conviction for any of the 14 crimes and offenses enumerated in the bill. Additionally, refusal to consent to, or cooperate in, the securing of a criminal history record background check would result in denial of a certificate of registration as a family day care provider. The costs of the criminal history record background checks are to be paid by the prospective or current family day care providers. The bill also provides for the Division of State Police to notify DCF in the event a person who was the subject of a criminal history record background check under the bill is convicted of a crime or offense in this State after the date the background check was performed.
