We are pleased to announce that Little Pippins have achieved a Sun Safe Nursery award by implementing policies and teaching, the content of which forms part of our duty of care to ensure the health and wellbeing of your child during pre-school hours. This is a scheme which has been developed by national skin cancer charity ‘Skcin’, to encourage the necessary culture change regarding attitudes towards sun safety required to combat the soaring rates of skin cancer in the UK.
We believe that parents and staff together have a duty of care to ensure that our children grow up with sufficient knowledge of sun safety and that all children at our nursery are adequately protected against the sun’s harmful rays. As such we will be utilising the Sun Safe Nurseries Scheme to teach children in our care basic sun safe messages through engaging teaching resources.
