Sand, concrete and water can reflect up to 85% of sunlight and intensify exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Children’s centre staff and centres can play a vital role in the long- term prevention of skin cancer and in teaching healthy sun habits to young children, and are responsible for preventing and reducing the risks from excess sun exposure while children are in their care
