New hand hygiene teaching pack for kids: Free download

05. Jun 2020

It has never been more important to prevent the spread of infection and illness in our communities. This teaching pack contains everything necessary to explain hand hygiene to young children individually and in groups.

Teaching pack

The latest Public Health England guidance about COVID-19 and educational settings recommends that young children should be ‘supervised to ensure they wash their hands for 20 seconds, more often than usual, with soap and water or hand sanitiser.’

This teaching pack contains everything you need to explain to young children about when and why hands should be washed, how germs are spread, where germs hide; and both how and when to wash hands.

The aim of the teaching aid is to enable children, particularly younger ones to feel confident about hand hygiene. The materials have been designed so they can be adapted to suit a range of ages and abilities. They can be used in a group situation or for a one-to-one session.
