Red Toothbrush

Teeth Cleaning 

As part of our commitment to good oral health, we encourage the children to clean their teeth once during their session.

 

Each child has their own toothbrush and these are hygienically stored in Brush Buses in your child’s playroom.

 

Younger children are supported by staff to clean their teeth, older children or when the child is ready, are encouraged to carry out this life skill independently. 

 

Fluoride toothpaste is used and contains the recommended amount of fluoride for children.

All staff have been trained in Dental Hygiene.
