Personal Hygiene

We always promote personal hygiene - Recently we have used the NHS hand washing poster to model to children how to wash their hands - Staff are supervising and modelling with children washing hands before snack, lunch times after toileting and other occasions. We are also strongly promoting children to wipe their noses when needed and we follow the catch it- bin it - kill it guidelines for this and when coughing and sneezing. We have also created a 'wash your hands song' to encourage children to wash their hands for the correct length of time.
