Information for Child Care Providers and Schools

Information for Child Care Providers

New York State has regulations for child care providers to help protect children from lead. For a newly enrolling child, all child care providers must try to obtain proof from a parent or guardian that the child has been tested for lead.

Information for Schools

People may be exposed to lead in schools through aging or deteriorating lead-based paint, products that are brought into the school that contain lead, or sometimes, drinking water.
