Sun Protection for Children and Staff: Management responsibilities and problems

 © ChildForum

This article covers the key reasons for implementing sun protection measures in early childhood services and the basic knowledge managers, team leaders, and educators need to have an understanding of.

It also includes some practical tips for incorporating sun protection practices easily into your programme along with covering some frequently mentioned issues:

  • Whether or not to restrict children’s access to outdoor play
  • How to get good support from parents and families
  • Management’s responsibility to staff, and staff own responsibility for personal sun protection

Check out also our other ChildForum articles on this website. These include:  some great teaching ideas and activities, ECE service sun protection policy guidelines and template,  shade planning and design information and guidance, and internationally accepted recommendations for best practices for keeping children safe with discussion of special considerations for infants.
