Christmas is coming!

September 27, 2017
Yes I know you going to think she’s crazy it is still months away, but Christmas means summer and summer means warm weather and sunshine. And it is the sunshine and UV rating that we need to be mindful of.

Welcome to Cow & Koala’s new Blog. Our aim is to provide you with valuable information about what’s happening at C&K, as well as childcare and all-things-Take today, it’ 24c with possible showers. The UV rating is 9-in the high zone between 9.10am-4.10pm. If you are outside during these times you will require sun protection. This means wearing a hat to protect your face and neck and covering up your body with clothing and sun screen.

Sun exposure in the first 10 years of life partly determines your lifetime potential for skin cancer, while sun exposure in later life determines how much this potential is realised. Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world.

You can download the Sunsmart app from the Cancer Council to your smart phone or tablet that sends you daily notifications about the need to use sun protection for your child and yourself. For more information go to

So with the weather warming up, when you are in the bathroom in the mornings after you have brushed your child’s teeth apply the sun cream to allow time for it to work so they are ready to play outside as soon as they arrive at Cow & Koala.
