For before and after school, Jabiru applies the school’s sun safe policy. However during Vacation Care programs, we require children to wear a broad brimmed hat and sun safe clothing.
Children may experience as much as six to eight times MORE exposure to sun and UV radiation during holiday programs than during school.
To maintain standards required under National Quality Assurance, and to avoid future legal action against us by you or your child, Jabiru requires each child who attends our vacation programs to wear a hat with a broad brim (10‐12 cm) or a flap at the back to shade both the face and back of the neck. A baseball hat is not adequate head cover unless it is of the ‘legionnaires’ variety and is worn with fold down covers.
To help you out, Jabiru has stocks of hats that meet our requirements and that you can purchase from us at our cost price. Purchasing a hat is one way to avoid having to return home to get one! If the lack of an appropriate hat is discovered after you have left, your child will be provided with a new one, which will be charged to your account.
