A SunSmart Early Childhood Centre is not only representing SunSmart in its daily activities, but also Cancer Council SA as a role model to other centres throughout our state.
Centres participating in the SunSmart Early Childhood Program must agree to the following terms and conditions:
- Be actively implementing their sun protection policy as documented.
- Take reasonable steps to ensure that all staff, children and families are aware of the sun protection policy and its requirements.
- Inform Cancer Council SA of any changes to the centre’s policy and practices and anything else that may relate to or affect its membership in the SunSmart Early Childhood Program.
- Complete a policy review every three years in order to renew membership.
