Hand washing is a great hygiene program practical in life lesson with steps that can improve the child’s order, concentration, coordination, and independence. Our wash program is well designed to give skills and knowledge of how important it is to wash hands, the wash program runs very well both in school program and outside school program, which is sports and life skills.

Hand washing is always important, but it’s especially important every now and then. Since proper hand washing is one of the best ways to stop the spread of disease, washing hands is a basic hygiene skill for kids. The earlier a child learns to properly wash his hands, the greater defense he/she has against germs that may cause illness.  Here’s an example of one way to show the steps involved.

Children need to know that you should wash your hands:

  • After being outdoors or getting your hands dirty.
  • After visiting toilets.
  • After changing dippers.
  • Before and after touching food.
  • After coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.

For a simple hand washing lesson, have your child:

  • Wash hands in warm water / cold water.
  • Use soap and lather up for about 20 seconds. Get in between the fingers and under the nails. Wash the wrists, too.
  • Rinse hands.
  • Dry well with a clean towel.
