Sun safety

Valley Heights Preschool Long Day Care Centre has adopted the best practice sun protection policy which has been developed by Cancer Council NSW to use as their sun protection policy through the SunSmart Program.

All outdoor play activities will be set up in the shade and moved throughout the day to take advantage of shade patterns. Our service has a large shade structure which covers the back yard area where equipment is set up throughout the day.

Prior to going outdoors all children will be applied with SPF30+ broad-spectrum water-resistant  to exposed skin being face, ears, neck, arms and legs. Children are required to wear sun-safe hats that protect their face, neck and ears. In order to meet the guidelines from
SunSmart Cancer Council NSW requirements, the service will supply both these items.
