Policy and Procedures for Tooth Brushing:

It is our aim to encourage tooth brushing to be happening daily all across the nursery.  Each child is allocated a named cup and it is up to the parent/guardian if they wish to supply a toothbrush and toothpaste for their child.

The cups are placed in the bathroom on a shelf in order to help our older children to access their own cups and independently brush their teeth, whilst under the watchful eye of a team member.

Teeth brushing is encouraged after lunch when children are brought to the bathroom to wash their faces and hands in preparation for quiet time or sleep time.

We hope to encourage good hygiene routines with all our children whilst in our care.
