        Background Check for Daycare License - Felony or Misdemeanor

        This be a lengthy reply but in our opinion a misdemeanor should not preclude you from attaining a license in Georgia. You record may even be expunged after all this time. Best bet is to go to the police department and pay the fee ($20?) for the background check. When you apply for the license state that it was a misdemeanor. Please read below.

        The types of crimes which disqualify license-exempt caregivers from receiving public child care payments vary. They range from felony convictions for crimes against persons to misdemeanors for crimes against property. For example, Oregon disqualifies license-exempt caregivers for crimes that range from arson and drug-related crimes to animal abuse and writing bad checks, while Arizona only disqualifies license-exempt caregivers if they are awaiting trial or have been convicted of felony crimes against persons or drug-related crimes.

                Re: Question about Background Check

                I'm not sure that Rutasha or Unregistered have their answer yet.

                No records are sealed or expunged unless the convicted person initiates an expungement proceeding through the court where they were convicted. So both Rutasha's underage-drinking and the Unregistered's shoplifting remain on their record. Even if you get your record expunged, you must still reveal the conviction when you apply for day care positions. If you do not reveal it, then you could be committing a more serious crime. You can run a pre-employement screening background check on yourself at many companies for modest fee. That would tell you what shows on your record and what types of things are included in the reports. Here is a summary of 3 Laws Governing Federal Background Checks.

                Daycare positions (or any position with authority over disabled or dependent people) generally do not approve applicants with convictions related to theft, substanse abuse, or violence, which may apply to both of you. However, first offense of underage drinking (for which he got a "ticket") is typically considered a "minor misdemeanor" which should not affect job application.

                          Would a felony drug conviction that's over 10 years old stop me from starting up my own day care in the state of Texas? If so would an expunge be an option that should be considered? What would disqualify me from opening up my own daycare?
