Tooth Brushing at Grade R

By 5 years ago
Categories Cape Town

What a great sight it is to see children enjoying brushing their teeth! That’s what we are now seeing every day at Grade R. Such an important part of caring for ourselves and that is why our Health Care program at Grade R has focussed on tooth brushing.  The children enjoyed their lessons on how to brush their teeth and about foods that are good and not so good for your teeth. 

Tooth brushing just before nap time is now a part of the daily routine at Grade R.  The children take great delight in coming up to us after tooth brushing , showing their teeth and saying “clean teacher!”

It is rewarding for our volunteers to see that such a simple process they have helped introduce into the daily routine can make an impact on the health of every child in Grade R.
