Keeping hands clean is not just an old lesson from childhood. Research by health organizations around the world has shown that proper hand washing can stop germs from making us sick. In programs where children learn early life lessons, teachers have the opportunity to encourage hand washing as a lifelong habit. This one-hour class will help you understand the 'why' and 'how' of keeping hands clean to prevent disease - and keeping the children in your care healthy!
