II. How to interpret background checks:

Each state has a list of crimes that disqualify a person from working with children in a daycare setting.  While state laws may only apply to daycare and education center employees, Spoiled Rotten Photography is committed to employing only people of the utmost integrity and character.  If a background check reveals any of the following offenses, the prospective employee must be disqualified. These offenses include, but are not limited to:

  • any felony conviction,
  • murder,
  • kidnapping,
  • any sex crime,
  • solicitation of a child by computer or otherwise for the intent of committing a crime,
  • transmittal of obscene material to a child,
  • any crime that involves a physical or mental mistreatment of a child or the elderly,
  • any crime committed against a child,
  • any crime involving the sale or distribution of a controlled substance,
  • any report of adult or child abuse or neglect

Your state may include other offenses for which a person may be denied employment in a child-care center.  If you have any questions, please contact us and we will help guide your decision.
