Global Hand Washing Day

Today is Global Handwashing Day! It’s a day dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding about the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective and affordable way to prevent diseases and save lives.

The children here at Aston Childcare are great at washing their hands and knowing that the warm water and soap kills germs.  They know to wash their hands thoroughly after going to the toilet, or going near the chickens or any other messy, dirty activities!

We have a poster detailing 8 steps to effective handwashing up on the mirror in the downstairs toilet that  serves as a visual reminder to them.

We’ve enjoyed lots of hand related arts and crafts in honour of global handwashing day!
