According to the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage

“The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children’s ‘school readiness’ and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.”

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.
