Once germs are in your program, hand washing is the number one way to prevent the spread of infectious disease. Studies show that unwashed or improperly washed hands are the primary carriers of infections. Germs are also passed from one child to another from toys, through water play, and from contact with other surfaces. You can eliminate germs by properly cleaning and sanitizing every surface children touch. Clearly, what you are doing in your programs for healthy and safety matters!
