Ice Halo Takes Daycares By Storm!
The Ice Halo Protective Headband is now being used to keep toddlers safe in daycare facilities across Canada.
By: Ice Halo Ltd.
The Ice Halo is lightweight and comfortable. Its adjustable closure ensures a snug but safe fit around a childs head and protects the vulnerable area with a one inch thick layer of padding.
Most Daycare facilities see a variety of injuries in toddlers to pre-schoolers because the little ones are always on the go - exploring and learning, yet not quite equipt enough to be able to navigate past the dangers presented in the classroom and facility.
Several facilities across Canada have purchased the Ice Halo and have parents sign a consent form when they register their children in Daycare. The Ice Halo reduces the risk of head injuries in toddlers from falls, bangs, and bumping into the wide variety of things that children learning to walk are typically bumping into.
Excerpt from The Barrie Examiner & Toronto Star (December 2010): “A study at Boston University in conjunction with the Sports Legacy Institute linked repeated concussions with Alzheimer-like symptoms – for which there is no cure. The best remedy? Don’t get a concussion in the first place.” Concussions can occur at any age.
At Ice Halo, we’re trying to help everyone have ‘the best remedy’ for concussion! In the Daycare facilities we're trying to reduce the number of injuries incurred when toddlers are learning to walk and just trying to have fun.
The Ice Halo comes in 4 adjustable sizes including X-Small for toddlers! It's available in over 25 different colours and textures and Ice Halo is always looking for popular requests.
If your Daycare Service or Child Care Provider Service is not using the Ice Halo to help protect your toddler from sharp edges, bumps and bruises, ask them to visit www.icehalo.com and order theirs today!
