Children need to know the importance of hand hygiene, especially in their early years. Taking a bath at least once a day can already help with their overall hygiene, but by regular hand washing, it increases their health protection throughout the day.
A lot of kids like to touch things such as toys, gadgets, and coloring materials at home or in their child care center. Also, when they play with their friends, like performing hand-clapping games, it is irrevocable that they engage in physical contact with them. Because of these activities, their hands likely get in contact with germs and viruses, increasing their chance of catching a disease.
By teaching your child to wash their hands and how to do it properly often as a headstart, you’re already helping your child promote health and wellness. It helps if you do it together at home and let them emulate how you wash your hands.
Our preschool in Toledo, Ohio values the health and well-being of every child. Teachers encourage preschoolers to wash their hands first before eating and after playing.
