Here at The Rosary BarBar the children participate in teeth cleaning after eating their lunch. The staff and children talk together about the importance of oral hygiene. This further promotes healthy living in our setting. The staff guide and support each child as they clean their teeth. The children are enjoying taking ownership over their health care routine and have become more independent as their confidence grows.
Some quotes from the children:
Esmee “I clean my teeth, or the tooth fairy won’t come”
Arthur “I clean my teeth, so they don’t fall out”
Puja “If we don’t brush our teeth they go yellow and black and will fall out”
Benedict “I brush my teeth to get them clean”
Natalia “We brush our teeth because they get dirty”
