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.

Recommendations from the Healthy Children Website

According to the Healthy Children website, “To reduce the risk of disease in child-care settings as well as schools, the facility should meet certain criteria that promote good hygiene.” 

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.

These measures are extremely important when it comes to stopping the spread of viruses but they also put additional pressure on staff members whose main role is to look after the little ones in their care.
