SUN SMART KIDS
Our Sun Smart Kids program promotes sun safety to children, parents and teachers. In partnership with The Learning Partnership, we provide sun hats and information to pre-kindergarten children and their families participating in the ‘Welcome to Kindergarten’ program.
In 2015, we launched Sun Smart Kids in the Toronto District School Board reaching over 8,000 children.
In 2016, in partnership with The Douglas Wright Foundation, Sun Smart Kids will return to the Toronto District School Board. 10,000 Toronto children will receive Sun Smart Kids sun hats and prevention information.
We are also excited to expand Sun Smart Kids to North Bay, Ontario in 2016. Over 1,750 children will receive Sun Smart Kids hats and information through a network of local partners including school boards, First Nations communities, Child Care Centres, Health Units, Nipissing University and Canadore Early Childhood Education Program, the Multicultural Centre, LIPI, Nipissing/Canadore Aboriginal Learning Units. Indian Friendship Centre and the Métis Nation of Ontario.
