  • SunSmart Information
    Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Around half of all people who spend their life here develop some form of skin cancer. Most skin cancers are caused by ultaviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
    Young children have sensitive skin, which places them at particular risk of sunburn and skin damage. Childcare services have a responsibility and opportunity to reduce children’s risk and to help establish effective long-term Sun-Smart behaviours. A sun protection policy that is based on the latest research and best practice principles helps our Centre to achieve this. See link (above) for further information.
