Sun Safe Nurseries is the first and only accreditation scheme of its kind to launch in the UK with the key objective to prevent skin cancer through education. Sun Safe Nurseries is a national, annual, accreditation scheme developed by Skcin to introduce sun safe messaging to pre-school children, whilst assisting pre-school settings in implementing a suitable sun safe policy and promoting the reinforcement of sun safety at home. Sun Safe Nurseries is a FREE on-line tool available to all nurseries, playgroups and pre-school settings, giving them access to a range of fun and engaging, resources to help them achieve their goal.

Sun Safe Nurseries is the sister scheme of Sun Safe Schools that has been specifically developed by Skcin to introduce key sun safety messaging through song, book and basic activities that will help prepare pre-school children in understanding the importance of sun safety. The scheme has proved hugely popular with very positive feedback from pre-school settings who believe that even children of pre-school age are grasping and understanding the ideas presented.Once these steps have been completed and the setting has provided evidence and feedback via the on-line step-by-step guide.

That all messaging is continually reinforced to children in their care and that the scheme and teaching are continually introduced to newcomers.Long-sleeved clothes and sunglasses played a minor role in the daily sun protection routine in nurseries, probably due to the fact that the parents’ cooperation in supplying appropriate equipment is essential here. On the other hand, 85% of the nurseries required the parents to deliver their children in the morning already protected by sunscreen and 65% asked the parents to provide their children with their own sunscreen for possible re-application in the nursery.

A series of studies in Germany have hitherto focused on the parental perspective on children’s sun protection at home and on the beach [14,15,16,17,18,19,20]. Since a high proportion of 3- to 6-year-old children in Germany are supervised for several hours per day in nurseries, the caregivers at the nurseries play an important role for daily sun protection of children at this age [9]. Therefore, the current study aimed at evaluating the sun protection situation in nurseries more closely. In particular, we examined the shade coverage in the outdoor area of the nurseries, UVR protective behavior implemented by nursery staff, as well as the existence of sun protection guidelines or policies in nurseries and sources used by nursery directors to receive sun protection information.
