Central Registry Check
New federal and state regulations require a Central Registry check for everyone applying for, or renewing, a child care facility and/or worker license. Applicants must submit a completed form from each state they have lived within the past 5 years. The City of Boise is aligned with these regulations and now requires all applicants to provide proof of a Central Registry check. This requirement also includes all residents over the age of 18 living in the home of an in-home daycare.
- It is now the applicant's responsibility to provide written documentation from all states, including Idaho, they have lived in within the past 5 years.
- Each state has their own laws and requirements, including fees for registry checks. See the Central Registry Master List for information for each state.
- Applicants must have the result of the Central Registry check prior to applying for their city license.
