Be SunSmart Play SunSmart (Revised 2017)

An early childhood resource booklet for Canberra teachers, carers and educators working with children from birth to five+ years of age. This resource is filled with ideas for educational play experiences and general information about sun protection and being SunSmart in the ACT.

SunSmart Widget

ACT early childhood services are encouraged to upload the FREE SunSmart Widget to their website. The widget not only works as a general reminder to be SunSmart, but it also indicates what time sun protection is required each day along with a daily max temperature and rain forecast for Canberra.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Others

Sometimes it can be difficult to get and keep parents/carers on board when it comes to best SunSmart behaviour, especially when it comes to hats!! ACT childhood services with SunSmart status do not permit 'caps' to be worn, and it is important that parents understand that your service is serious about this.

Simply download, cut and pop in the child's bag for those mums and dads that may require another friendly reminder.

Be SunSmart Today

The "Be SunSmart today" poster is an ideal way to remind children, staff and parents to your service when sun protection will be required each day in Canberra. It can be downloaded, laminated and displayed in practical locations throughout your service for all to see. Simply view the daily sun protection times for Canberra here (or via your SunSmart phone app or widget) and then share it with your workers and parents via the poster.

Availability: Free download or contact Cancer Council ACT to order an A3 size by clicking here.

SunSmart Countdown Activities

A selection of hand on activities to assist educators with their efforts to maintain sun protection awareness and education requirements in their setting. Download, print and go for it.
