Fingerprinting for Center-Based Day Care or Pre-School

The Department of Investigation Fingerprint Unit fingerprints individuals who work at child care, home care, and family care facilities, including those entities that are under contract with the City of New York. You must be screened for criminal convictions and/or pending criminal actions. All prospective hires must have their fingerprints checked against New York State and Federal criminal records databases. Notifications of arrests in New York State are provided on an ongoing basis for all active employees.

Applicants may pay the $122.50 fingerprint processing fee by credit card, (MasterCard, American Express, VISA or Discover) or by Postal Money Order from the United States Post Office made payable to the New York City Department of Investigation (other types of money orders will not be accepted). If you choose to pay with a credit or debit card, you will be charged a fee of 2.49% of the payment. All applicants must submit an application with their original signature, as well as the Permit or Fiscal number of the organization for which they will be working.
