With children being oblivious regarding how to maintain health and hygiene around them, it becomes highly important for nursery schools to both educate them, as well as look after their safety and well-being. Especially, in these challenging times, it’s become even more critical for nursery schools to follow stringent guidelines to ensure a hygienic environment.

Why hygiene is important in a nursery?
It’s easy for toddlers to catch a cold, flu viruses, or tummy bugs as they roam around touching objects, doors, and various surfaces followed by touching their face, eyes, mouth and nose using unwashed hands. Hence, it’s essential for nurseries to make sure that they follow extra hygiene protocols, especially during the COVID times. Below are some of the ways through which nurseries can keep the health of the kids in check.

-Campus Sanitization

Ensure to sanitize each room thoroughly after every class or session and before the students’ arrivals, in addition to regular cleaning throughout the nursery day. Make sure to cover every nook and corner of the campus while cleaning up.

-Social Distance Markings
Since young children don’t really understand the concept or reasoning being maintaining social distance, it’s important for nurseries to keep reminding them and reinforcing the need for it, as well as put up markers for them to identify where they need to stand or sit, while maintaining a gap from other children.

-Provide Sanitizers or practice frequent handwashing
Make sure to keep sanitizers in front of every room, so that kids know they need to sanitize their hands before entering into the class. If children are too young to use sanitizers safely (below the age of 2), ensure they wash their hands at regular intervals throughout the day, in addition to mealtimes and after using the toilet or nappy change.

-Sanitize hands if washing hands with soap isn’t possible
-Use masks at all times
-Cover your mouth while sneezing and coughing

Benefits of personal hygiene
Personal hygiene not only keeps oneself clean but helps ward off infectious illnesses as well. Teaching personal hygiene to kids, while they spend their time in schools away from their parents, is crucial.
Personal hygiene comprises washing hands before and after doing any activity that includes dust and dirt, cleaning hands with soap before consuming food or after using the toilet, bathing properly, maintaining distance from other kids who are suffering from cold or flu, and more.
