Children's developing bodies can be very sensitive to hazardous chemicals, such as lead and pesticides. Chemicals may enter child care facilities in many ways, such as:

  • Being left over from previous industrial or agricultural use
  • Shared air/ventilation with a business that uses chemicals
  • Surface water moving chemicals from one property to another
  • Building materials (paint, insulation) made before 1978
  • Contaminated drinking water wells

If you are concerned about a potential environmental or chemical hazard at an existing or planned child care facility, please use this form to provide more information. Staff from the Environmental Epidemiology section at the Arkansas Department of Health may contact you for more information, or to provide resources and recommendations for keeping children and staff healthy at child care facilities.

Sharing this information with the Arkansas Department of Health is voluntary.
