Minnesota Statute 245C outlines the requirements for background studies in licensed programs.  A background check must be completed on all applicants, caregivers, and household members age 13 and older.  One may be required for household members age 10-12 when there is reasonable cause.  A background check is also required if a person will have unsupervised contact with the children in care.
