Child Care Centres want to provide healthy enjoyable and sun-safe environments. Outdoor facilities are an invaluable resource, and yet childhood sun exposure contributes to a lifetime risk of skin cancer.

Early childhood services can play a significant role in the prevention of skin cancer. WebShade helps Child Care Centres meet their legal duty to provide safe environments for the children in their care.

The WebShade Audit can be done by purchasing and using our shade planning software or you can contact WebShade accredited auditors and arrange for a WebShade Audit to be carried out for your facility.
