What matters most in a sunscreen is the degree of protection
from UV rays it provides. When faced with the overwhelming
sea of sunscreen choices at drugstores, concentrate on the
SPF (Sun Protection Factor) numbers on the labels.

For klds ogo slx monlhs ond oldor, solocl on SPF ol 30 or hlgh-
er to prevent both sunburn and tanning. Choose a sunscreen
that states on the label that it protects against both UVA and
UVB rays (referred to as “broad-spectrum” sunscreen to avoid
possible skin allergy, but do not use sunscreens with PABA).

For sunscreen to do its job, it must be applied correctly.
Be sure to:
º Apply sunscreen whenever kids will be in the sun.
º Do not try to stretch out a bottle of sunscreen; apply it
generously.
º Reapply sunscreen often, approximately every two
hours, as recommended by the American Academy of
Dermatology. Reapply after a child has been sweating
or swimming.
If your child does get a sunburn,
these tips may help:
º Have your child take a cool
(not cold) bath, or gently ap-
ply cool, wet compresses to
the skin to help alleviate pain
and heat.
º To ease discomfort, apply
pure aloe vera gel (available
in most pharmacies) to any
sunburned areas.
º Clvo your chlld on onll-lnNom-
matory medication like ibu-
profen or use acetaminophen
to lessen the pain and itching. (Do not, however, give
aspirin to children or teens.) Over-the-counter diphenhydr-
amine may also help reduce itching and swelling.
º Apply topical moisturizing cream to rehydrate the skin
and treat itching. For the more seriously sunburned areas,
apply a thin layer of 1% hydrocortisone cream to help
with pain. (Do not use petroleum-based products, be-
cause they prevent excess heat and sweat from escaping.
Also, ovold hrsl-old producls lhol conloln bonzocolno,
which may cause skin irritation or allergy.)

Sunscreen and Insect Repellent
Permission Form
Please check with your child’s teacher to complete this form. All
parents need to review and indicate if you choose to bring in
sunscreen or insect repellent to be applied to your child. Please
note that we are unable to apply aerosol sunscreen at the cen-
ter, keep this in mind when selecting a sunscreen product.

Kindergarten Celebration
We want to recognize our preschool children who will be going
to Kindergarten (both that are continuing on to our Kindergarten
Program and public school). Refreshments and further informa-
tion will be provided.

Kindergarten News
Our Kindergarten Program will begin in August. We are very
excited to offer this opportunity for parents. Currently, the class is
full with a waiting list. Those on the waiting list that do not attend
the program will receive their deposit as a refund. If you do not
want to continue on the waiting list, please see the front desk to
be removed. If your child is currently on the waiting list, we highly
recommend that you also register your child at the public school,
as we cannot guarantee a spot for the fall in our Kindergarten
Program. Also, please understand that our Preschool Program
con only sorvo chlldron up lo ogo hvo. lhoso chlldron who lurn

what school you should register your child with. The last day for

and exciting time for children as they transition to another school
or program. Please see Assistant Directors, Erika Garcia and Amy
Collins, or Director, Ann O’Malley, if you have any questions.
We are always happy to help in any way.

Dental Exams
Familia Dental will be visiting the center
to give children dental exams on June 9
and 10. This is a convenient opportuni-
ty to complete your child’s dental exam.
Parents are welcome to attend, but it
is not necessary. Familia Dental has
visited the center in the past, and the
children have been very cooperative!
As part of our
Healthy Lifestyles
Curriculum, all
children brush their
teeth every day
while at school. We
want to start healthy
dental practices
early on in life.
Congratulations to
our RaIhc Winncrs!

Sun Safety
We all need some sun exposure. It is our primary source of
Vitamin D, which helps us absorb calcium for stronger, healthier
bones. However, it does not take much time in the sun for most
people to get the Vitamin D they need, and repeated unprotect-
ed exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause skin damage,
eye damage, immune system suppression and skin cancer.

Most kids rack up a lot of their lifetime sun exposure before age
18, so it is important that parents teach their children how to
enjoy fun in the sun safely. With the right precautions, you can
greatly reduce your child’s chance of developing skin cancer.

One of the best ways to protect your family from the sun is to
cover up and shield skin from UV rays. Ensure that clothes will
screen out harmful UV rays by placing your hand inside the gar-
ments and making sure you cannot see it through them.

Lots of good sunscreens are available for kids, including formu-
lations for sensitive skin, and even brands with fun scents like
watermelon. Other types include long-lasting waterproof and
sweat-proof versions good for use while swimming or doing
more strenuous outdoor work.
