Dental and Oral Hygiene Support
Dental hygiene and tooth care is high on the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and we will be looking at this in more detail with your children very soon. We have had a number of children visiting the dentist in the last few weeks and this has generated some lovely conversations about good oral health and us sharing Going to the Dentist, experience stories together.
Here is a guide from NHS Dentists and Speech and Language Therapists, demonstrating good oral hygiene and practices, along with dummy use to support what we have already discussed in Nursery. A copy of this document in a pdf format is on this website under Parents/Useful Links. If you have any questions or need any further advice, please speak to your key workers.
