starOnline Learning Course: Medication Administration in Early Education and Child Care

This curriculum was designed to educate child care providers who give children medication, but are not licensed health care professionals. Medication is usually given at home by parents or guardians. When a child attends a child care facility, the medication can be administered by child care providers to maintain the health of the child, prevent illness, or relieve symptoms.
