Weapon and Tool Safety

If you plan to have a child care business and you or a family member own guns, you should disclose this information to parents, along with the safety precautions you have taken.

  • Store unloaded guns in a locked cabinet at all times. Guns should be kept out of sight.
  • Store ammunition separately from firearms in a locked cabinet. Ammunition should be stored out of sight.
  • All sharp objects, including knives, scissors, letter openers, sharp tools, etc., should be stored out of reach and out of sight, preferably in locked cupboards or locked drawers.
