Some employers or agencies may also request an FBI background check if you have lived outside of Ohio in the past five years. 

The Early Childhood Resource Center offers background checks by appointment only, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays from 9:30 am to 7:00 pm. To make an appointment, please call 330-491-3272 Monday - Thursday.

The cost of background checks:

  • BCI Only:  $37
  • FBI Only:  $39
  • FBI & BCI: $66

Notary Services are available from 3-8pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  The cost is $2.00 per signature. Other rates may apply.
