The Little Ducks team are in the process of raising awareness of dental care and hygiene.
As part of our daily routine, we have introduced tooth brushing after lunch. Also, to alleviate fears of visits to the dentist and the sight of adults in scary white coats, the teachers set up a fun dentists role play area where children could play out the role of doctor, nurse and patient.
Other recent activities include a toothbrush hunt, taking turns to practise brushing our ‘giant’s false teeth’, and culminated this week with the visit of a real life dentist and her dental nurses.
Little Ducks parents are already commenting that the battle to brush teeth is being replaced with enthusiasm and sparkly smiles!
