New York State Office of Children and Family Services only accepts fingerprinting through a computerized imaging process known as LiveScan.
Individuals that need to have fingerprints taken can schedule an appointment online, or by calling 1-877-472-6915. Before you schedule an appointment you need to complete a Request for New York State Fingerprinting Services Information Form.
When entering your license number into the form, do not include leading zeros or any letters. For example, license number 0001234DC would be entered in the form as 1234. Individuals must bring appropriate forms of identification to the fingerprinting appointment as indicated on the back of the form. For more information, refer to the Fingerprint Information Guidelines.
If you have been fingerprinted within the past 4 years for child care and are adding or changing employment locations you need a fingerprint waiver.
Child Care Resource Network can complete your waiver after your Licensor or Registrar has your fingerprint results. You can download the fingerprint waiver form, and fill it out prior to coming into our offices. Waivers will be accepted between the business hours of 9:00 am and 4:00 pm weekdays. Please make sure you bring valid picture ID.
