Get ready for spring and summer with this workshop, which will provide participants with information about the risks of sun and UV exposure; particularly among infants, children and youth. We will identify ways to protect children from the dangerous effects of the sun and provide practical and important information about how to keep children safe from these damaging effects through messaging and proper sun protection practices. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities in implementing sun protection measures in their preschool or daycare settings and discuss how to communicate risk and recommendations to children and families. Finally, we will introduce a shade audit tool and discuss how to implement sun safe practices and policies at their childcare sites.
Note: If possible, bring photos from your childcare sites to demonstrate how to get started.
