To initiate the comprehensive background check process for staff new to child care who have not been fingerprinted previously, individuals must follow the instructions on the OCFS-4930 form to schedule a fingerprinting appointment and also submit a completed OCFS-6000 packet to their program’s provider/director.


Individuals that need to have fingerprints taken need to schedule an appointment with IdentoGO by either going to its website at or by calling 1-877-472-6915. Applicants will be able to select a location closest to their home or place of employment. IdentoGO offers extended daily hours and weekend services at most locations throughout the State.

Applicants will be required to bring two forms of ID, at least one of which must have a photo in order to have their fingerprints taken. There is no cost for fingerprinting to the individuals who are applying to work in a day care program or any household members over the age of 18. Each person appearing without the acceptable IDs will be directed back to the day care provider or licensing/registration representative or enrollment agency for further instructions. Questions regarding this procedure should be directed to your licensing/registration representative or enrollment agency.
