Get Approved To Administer Medication

All child care and after school providers should be approved by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services to administer medication.* In order to do so, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have and maintain current first aid and CPR certificates that cover the ages of the children in your care
  • Have an Office of Children and Family Services-approved Health Care Plan with a policy for the administration of medication, and have a Health Care Consultant of record who reviews and approves the Plan. Learn more about the Council’s Health Care Consultant services and get help with your plan.
  • Be listed in your program’s approved Health Care Plan as a medication administrant, and have your Health Care Consultant review and sign your plan, to approve you as an administrant
  • Have the signed Health Care Plan approved by your program’s licensor or registrant
  • Work in a program where the oriented license or registration states the program is approved to administer medication
  • Successfully complete the Office of Children and Family Services approved Medication Administration Training (MAT) Course offered through the Council
