Sun Safety

As we approach summer we will be providing sunscreen and hats every afternoon to ensure that your children are sun safe. Eaton Street Centre follows recommendations from Sun Safety Australia.

Throughout the vacation care program, sun protection is high on the list of priorities.

It is planned and will be executed as such:

  • Every child will be enforced to wear a hat.

  • On incursions and excursions, sunscreen will be indefinitely available.

  • The children will be required to apply and then re-apply sunscreen every 2 hours in most circumstances.

  • For activities where water will be involved, the children will be required to apply and then re-apply sunscreen every hour. 

To maintain these expectations, there will be specified breaks during the day, at these 1 - 2 hour intervals, to collaboratively ensure all children have undertaken the necessary steps of sun protection.
