120. Despite section 118, the childcare provider may administer saline nasal drops, an oral hydration solution, diaper rash cream, lubricant jelly in single-dose packs for taking a child’s temperature, moisturizing cream, lip balm, calamine lotion or sunscreen cream to a child without the authorization of an accredited health care professional.
With the exception of a saline nasal drops, moisturizing cream and lip balm, the childcare provider may supply the medication referred to in the first paragraph. However, if the medication is provided by the parent, the container must be clearly marked with the name of the child concerned.
Despite the provisions of the second paragraph of section 117, the information on the original container or packaging for the lubricant jelly, lip balm and moisturizing cream is sufficient.

120. A childcare provider must ensure that every medication is clearly labelled and stored in a space reserved for that purpose, out of the reach of children and away from food, toxic products and cleaning products. The childcare provider must keep that space locked.
Despite the first paragraph, oral hydration solutions, saline nasal drops, creams for the seat area, sun creams and an epinephrine auto-injector need not be stored under lock and key and oral hydration solutions need not be kept away from food. A home childcare provider must store the medication for the children apart from the other medication used in the residence where the childcare is provided.
