Protect children’s skin from the sun
During the warmer seasons, there is an increased need to protect children’s skin.
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation can be high even on overcast days. So we’re reminding all early childhood services and schools to be alert to this.
This might be a good time to review your sun protection policy and ensure it is being followed.
UV damage in childhood increases skin cancer risk. So keeping children safe from the sun is particularly important.
For more information about sun safety see the Cancer Council website.
