Sun Safety Policy
To ensure that all children attending my childminding setting are safe in the sun, parents should supply:
- Sun hat
- Suitable clothing to keep them cool, but also covered from the sun`s rays
This will enable me to take children outdoors safely during the spring / summer months. I will also avoid spending prolonged periods of time outdoors during the hottest part of the day
The children will be encouraged to drink plenty of fluids throughout the day.
There will be shaded areas provided in the garden during the hot weather.
Quote from skin cancer foundation:
“The more that children are exposed to the sun, the greater their chances of permanent skin damage and even skin cancer.”
