Choose Safe Places

The Choose Safe Places (CSP) program is part of a national initiative to protect children from harmful exposures to chemicals while attending child care centers.

The CSP program works with child care providers to ensure child care centers are located in areas free of harmful substances, such as lead, arsenic, or volatile organic compounds.

Many children spend large amounts of time in child care facilities, making it important to take action to make these spaces safe from harmful substances.
