Care during coronavirus pandemic acknowledged
The teaching of proper handwashing techniques is the most important thing that can be taught to children – particularly as the world find itself in the grip of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Which is why the recent achievements of a preschool group in Scotland are all the more important, according to a recent report on the Evening Express website.
A recent Care Inspectorate visit resulted in praise for the quality and focus of the group’s approach to the pandemic in “…the way it dealt with coronavirus protection measures like social distancing for staff, hand washing and providing ventilation.”
The importance of hand washing
Children were regularly supervised when they washed their hands, and the message was reinforced by the provision of a number of posters which encouraged good hygiene.
“Children had been helped to understand the importance of good-handwashing in preventing the spread of infection and to do this often throughout the session.”
Even snack routines have been amended and resources managed in order to avoid cross-infection wrote Proctor.
Teach effective hand washing to kids with portable sinks that can go anywhere – indoors or out
The Kiddiwash range of warm water hand wash units are perfect for smaller hands – and are ideal where a portable solution is required.
Whether you require a larger wheeled unit such as the KiddiSynk, or the ultra portable Kiddiwash Xtra, you can ensure that all children in your care are able to wash their hands whether inside or out.
