What Directors say about Play Active?

Play Active is like SunSmart, except it’s for physical activity rather than UV. It’s super quick and easy. Perhaps they should have called it PlaySmart!

We’ve made Eva our physical activity champion, as she’s really keen on fitness and movement for the children. I think having her lead it as champion has been really great for us, and for her development, as we have a lot going on at our service, so it’s important to share responsibilities.
