The Nest Nursery is now an Official Sun Safe Nursery!

Congratulations to The Nest Nursery for obtaining their Sun Safe Nursery Status & Award

“I think this is a wonderful idea, and couldn't wait to become a sun safe nursery. It is great to hear the children talking to each other when applying the sun cream about the benefits it provides for example, no burning, soft healthy skin. They really enjoy selecting their cream from the box, that independence of helping to apply and rub it it, being careful not to miss any patches. Also older children trying to explain to younger children. Really glad to be part of this.”
