If you have your child enrolled in a preschool in Burnaby, then you may be concerned with keeping them healthy while at school. Because you can’t always control what other parents will do as far as letting their kids go to school with the flu or a cold, you can take some extra precautions to make sure your own child doesn’t get sick or doesn’t spread illness to other kids.

You probably know very well what it feels like to be sick and still have to go to work or school yourself, and you know that it’s miserable. Your children feel the same way. So, if they are showing signs of sickness, make sure to keep them home and do whatever you can to find care for them if they aren’t well enough to attend preschool.

Encourage Proper Handwashing

One of the things that we try to do at CEFA schools is teach the kids enrolled in preschool in Burnaby how to wash their hands effectively. You can help at home by encouraging kids to wash their hands after using the bathroom, before meals, and throughout the day. Children should be encouraged to wash their hands especially if they cough or sneeze into their hands or if they’re picking their noses.

While hand sanitizer is a staple in many households all over the world, this is not as effective as washing hands with warm soap and water. Make sure children are lathering antibacterial soap on their hands for at least 30 seconds before rinsing with warm water.

Get the Flu Vaccine

Although it’s a highly contested topic, getting vaccinated is one of the better things you can do for your child to prevent the flue each year. The flu season is often seen as just being in the winter but it can extend well into the spring months. Midwinter is the peak of the infection in most areas, but it’s a problem for a majority of the year.

Teach Coughing Etiquette

One of the things your child will learn in preschool in Burnaby is the appropriate way to cough or sneezes. If they are able to, the ideal method is to have them cough or sneeze into a tissue. Sneezing and coughing into their hands is not a good way to block the spread of germs, and kids should learn good coughing and sneezing etiquette involves coughing into the crook of their elbow.

If your child coughs or sneezes on their clothes, then you should have them change right away. This is one reason to have an extra change of clothes at the preschool in Burnaby that they attend. If your kid coughs or sneezes into their hands, make sure they wash their hands well afterward to prevent those germs from making it anywhere else.

Having your child in preschool in Burnaby is one of the greatest things you can do for your child. They will be able to learn and grow in a custom fit environment and they will make so many new friends too. But if your child is sick, it’s always best to keep them home so that you can decrease the likelihood of making their illness worse and also passing it to other kids.
