We have been making the most of the sunshine this week at nursery. However, during this hot weather it is important to keep all children safe and protected from the sun's harmful rays. All children, regardless of skin colour, are at risk of sun burn and skin cancer. We have a duty of care to protect all children from the harmful effects of the sun at all times.
We have been teaching children to protect themselves from the sun by following these guidelines:
- Wearing a nursery sun hat with added neck protection at all times
- applying their own sun cream* supported by an adult.
- Drinking plenty of water throughout the day.
*Sun cream provided by the nursery is Nivea Children: SPF50, or parents can provide their own cream.
