Reducing the Spread of Illness in a Child Care Setting
We all know that when children hang out together whether during play or in a child-care setting, there is a very strong chance they share and spread infections. This is particularly the case with very young children who frequently use their hands to wipe their noses or rub their eyes and then handle toys or have close contact with other children. This is how viruses spread among infants and toddlers who tend to become ill more frequently during their early years as their bodies build immunity to common infections.
This is why it is so important that child-care settings such as day nurseries need to have in place robust and effective sanitisation and disinfection services to counteract the spread of viruses between children and staff members.
The website goes on to share what these measures should be including:
Having sinks in every room and separate sinks for preparing food and washing hands.
Ensuring toilets and sinks clean and readily available for the children and staff.
Use only disposable paper towels so each child will use only his or her own towel and not share with others.
Frequent disinfection and sanitisation all toys as the children put these in mouths.
Daily disinfection of all doors, cabinet handles, drinking fountains and all other surfaces including toileting and nappy changing areas. Get more recommendations here.
