It’s very important for daycare and school personnel to practice stringent handwashing technique as often as possible, including the children when appropriate, all in order to reduce the possibility of transferring pathogens between school/daycare attendees.
It is also recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that as you help your kids get ready for school, make sure they're fully vaccinated. Web tools from CDC (see the link below) can help parents and doctors keep children up-to-date with the vaccines they need and protected from serious diseases.
Making sure that children of all ages receive all their vaccinations on time is one of the most important things parents can do to ensure their children's long-term health, as well as the health of friends, classmates, and others in the community.
