Will there be hand sanitiser stations throughout the nursery?

For optimum infection control it is important to wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds and to dry thoroughly. We will be asking staff and supporting children to clean their hands upon arrival at the nursery, before and after eating, returning from a trip, and after sneezing or coughing and to avoid touching the mouth, eyes and nose where possible. Through games, songs and repetition we will encourage young children to learn and practise these habits regularly and routinely. Where hot water and soap is not available, we will have a supply of hand sanitiser, for example on trips and in reception for parents.
