According to the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, 

“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances.”

Here at TEAL, we’re very keen to see that children get in to those all-important hand washing habits that will serve them well in later life as soon as possible.

Parents should also encourage their children to wash their hands by showing them how to do it, to help ensure this becomes a lifelong habit.
