• Whitney Child Centre Sunscreen Permission

    Our playground tends to be very shady in the morning but it does become very hot and sunny in the afternoon. We require families to send in a sunhat in the warmer months and encourage parents to send their children in clothes that protect the neck and shoulders. Staff do encourage children to play in the shade whenever possible in very hot weather and always provide drinking water.

    Staff will apply sunscreen to children prior to outside play.

    Our Centre provides the Ombrelle Kids sunscreen described below:

    Ombrelle Lotion SPF 30 or 45 Sensitive Skin
    Description from Ombrelle: Discover Ombrelle's moisturizing Kids Sensitive Skin SPF 30 or 45 sun protection that is specifically formulated with naturally sourced titanium-dioxide for children with very sensitive skin. Dermatologist recommended. This water resistant and fast absorbing formula provides broad spectrum photostable protection against UVA & UVB rays.

    Staff do not apply sunscreen to children in the winter months.

    Please note, that children who attend the morning nursery school have outside time when they arrive at 8.45 a.m. Sunscreen must be applied to these children by the parent/guardian/caregiver before they arrive. Staff do not apply sunscreen to morning only nursery school children.
