If you work with young children, you’ve probably had your share of sick days! It seems to come with the territory – but you can stop the spread of contagious illnesses like influenza, sore throats, stomach viruses and runny noses by following the simple practices described in this course. We include videos that show how to properly sanitize your classroom. We also include teaching activities that help children understand how to keep themselves and others healthy. Print the Listening Sheet before you begin to take notes.
You get handouts on what to do if you’re faced with head lice, how to make bleach water disinfecting solution, diaper changing procedures, cleaning and sanitizing checklists for the classroom, plus fun hand washing activities and steps for children to easily follow.
