Learning About Germs

A high-quality education starts with a healthy child. When it’s time for your child to enroll in an early childhood education program in Islip Terrace, it becomes particularly important to teach him or her healthy habits. Watch this fun and educational video with your little one. It explains the importance of not putting one’s fingers in the mouth.

You’ll see a cheerful puppet enjoying a snack. Two nursing school students, Molly and Bridget, notice that the puppet keeps putting his fingers in his mouth when he eats. They explain that even when a person’s hands look clean, there are lots of germs on them that can make the person sick if they get in the mouth. After watching this video with your child, head for the nearest sink and reinforce proper handwashing techniques.
