There is a new Lead Safety Information requirement this year for California’s family child care providers. Effective January 1, 2019, AB 2370, Chapter 676, Statutes of 2018, requires all child care providers, when enrolling or re-enrolling any child, to provide your parents or guardians with written information including the following:

  • Risks and effects of lead exposure
  • Blood lead testing recommendations and requirements
  • Options for obtaining blood lead testing, including any programs that offer free or discounted tests

The California Department of Public Health has created a pamphlet to share in your child care home. It is not available in Spanish but it is important you distribute it, so you are in compliance.

  • Give a copy to each parent
  • Post this next to your license/bulletin board
  • Include a copy of the pamphlet in each child’s file with a note containing the parent’s signature and date when you shared a copy with each parent
