Safety & Sun Protection

Play & Learn centres have extensive policies and practices to ensure the safety of both children and staff. Staff are trained to constantly monitor indoor and outdoor environments for any potentially dangerous situations, ensure soft fall is provided where children climb and any activities to do with water are appropriately supervised.

All Play & Learn centres are Sun Smart accredited and our policy reflects the associated recommendations made by the Cancer Council Western Australia. These include planning daily routines (regarding times of the day children should not be in the sun), the type of shade cloth and where it is used, and appropriate protection when in the sun, such as sunscreen and hat. All children are provided with a sun hat that meets the Sun Smart guidelines, when they enrol in a Play & Learn centre.
