CCR&R of NW Iowa - Region 1

Child Care Resource & Referral (CCR&R) of NW Iowa is excited to announce that digital fingerprinting is here! One of the challenges NW Iowa child care businesses have been facing is the availability of locations to get their fingerprints taken. Fingerprinting is a Department of Human Services requirement to become a registered provider. 
 
“We are very excited to be able to offer mobile digital fingerprinting to NW Iowa providers beginning in April 2018. Our new Livescan system will allow us to travel to our providers in order to assist them with their fingerprinting requirements. Our staff has been through a training hosted by the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigations and will be able to scan fingerprints into this system and print out the assigned fingerprint cards on site at no cost to child care providers,” states Administrative Project Specialist, Sonya Jonas. “Even though the live scan process is far superior to the ink process, and can eliminate up 99% of all rejected ten prints, it does take the same amount of skill to get a proper set of prints.”
 
CCR&R of NW Iowa will have fingerprinting available during their local conferences and plan to add dates for community sessions too. Be sure to follow us on our Facebook page for announcements.
 
CCR&R has made a commitment to break the barriers that prevent child care providers from starting a business. Offering free, convenient fingerprinting is a wonderful addition to the services already available. Want to learn more? Contact a Child Care Consultant here .
