Children at Bright Horizons Timperley Day Nursery and Preschool in Cheshire have been learning more about dental hygiene and how to look after their teeth.
A dental nurse was invited to the nursery last week to speak about dental hygiene and how to brush your teeth effectively. The nurse also read the children stories about tooth brushing to help them understand more about the importance of a healthy lifestyle. They then took part in a demonstration to show the dental nurse what they had learnt over the session.
“The children were also able to role play being at the dentist, by wearing protective gloves and glasses,” said Deputy Nursery Manager Emma Dunsmore. “The aim of the visit was to make the children feel more comfortable about visiting the dentist.”
