The programme is aimed at under 5’s to get children to understand the importance of brushing their teeth and to have the opportunity to do this at school as well as at home.
The children in Nursery and Reception have been given their own toothbrush and toothpaste for use in school and the teaching staff in those classes have had training on how to implement this programme.
Why is it important to brush your teeth?
It's also important to brush because when you brush, you're getting a lot of the plaque build-up off of your teeth. Plaque build-up is harmful because it can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. It can also severely irritate the gums.
