Children are taught how to keep as hygienic as possible.
ALL children must thoroughly wash and dry their hands before and after eating / touching food and after toileting.
Many children rush the process when washing their hands - a helpful way to avoid this is that they sing a rhyme / song / count as they are doing it (the Happy Birthday song is the perfect duration).
Children learn about germs and the affects they can have on our health.
Before / after snack time children will use anti bacterial spray to wash the table - either with adult support or independently. Please encourage them to be active germ busters at home and help you to clean the surfaces (they really enjoy it).
