NOTICE: Global Site Search function is currently under maintenance and will not provide results. We apologize for the inconvenience. This does not impact the Child Care or Kindergarten searches.

Applicants can now create an Interstate Background Check (those seeking to work in child care in another state) with ABCMS.   This request does not require fingerprints and is not valid to work in any North Carolina child care facility. 

DCDEE has developed a user guide that you can find here. All background checks require an individual NCID.  We have a created a Job Aid to assist applicants in obtaining one.

You do not need to get criminal record checks from NFF states.  â€‹Most states don't require fingerprints for out of state criminal record checks.

Check the box next to the state or states you want to look up, then click the "Show Selected" button below. All states have two background checks, but some may not be required. You must make copies of all paperwork and forms prior to submitting to the other state.
