The Early Child Infection Prevention Tool Kit includes all the tools necessary to institute a successful hand hygiene training program for both staff and students/children in your Pre-school/daycare program. Hand hygiene is the most common defect in an ECERS review.
Dr. Will Sawyer with the help of many experts has created this simple Infection Prevention training Program based on the 4 Principles of Hand Awareness* and Johns Hopkins Partnership 2000 School strategies, which engages the family, school and community working together to benefit the student. This science based multi-media and multi-sensory Tool Kit is designed with a lesson plan curriculum that trains students, faculty, and staff members to prevent the spread of respiratory and gastro-intestinal infections. Some of the basic features were derived from his experience when his 4 children were in daycare in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s.
Presenteeism for both students, children and staff are key results. A healthy student is a better learner.
Implementing the innovative reinforcement techniques and tools of this Program into your school’s culture develops lifelong practice of the 4 Principles of Hand Awareness* that have been endorsed by the AMA and AAFP.
Remember: a presentation, without demonstration, is merely a conversation.

Whether you are a teacher, director, parent, school nurse, nursing student or an involved community member, this Infection Prevention Tool Kit equips you with the necessary tools to teach the 4 Principles of Hand Awareness* Program to any classroom (adults or children). We know that parents work hard to teach handwashing behavior to their children particularly during potty training! In order to be consistent and produce good results achieved through diligent and repetitive efforts at pre-school/daycare we developed the Infection Prevention Tool Kit to lend all of you a hand in your efforts.
The Tool Kit is simple, virtually self-administered, and easy to implement. The cumulative effect of utilizing this Program dramatically reduces seasonal illness, which improves the learning potential for students and increases adult productivity in all aspects of their lives. That’s right! By decreasing infections spread in pre-schools/daycare, economic productivity in the community increases. The result will be a healthier, happier home environment, as well.
*the 4 Principles of Hand Awareness have been endorsed by the AMA and AAFP since 2001.
