Sun Safety For Children

Spring is upon us and it will soon be time for us to remind parents to apply sunscreen on their children before dropping them off at Smart Kids Day Nursery in Peckham as we know that sun safety for children is so important. The children at our nursery LOVE playing in the outside space here and we ensure that they are kept safe from the sun’s harmful rays, especially in the sunnier, warmer months. In addition to ensuring that they are kept well-hydrated with drinks of water, here are just a few of the ways we can keep our children safe at our nursery in Peckham:

Clothing – as much as we don’t want our children to overheat, loose-fitting, long-sleeved clothing keep them safe from burning in the heat.

Hats – We also ask for the children to bring sunhats with them so that their heads and faces can be protected and this also helps keep them as cool as possible.
