Washing hands is not only a good habit, it is necessary for good health. Many studies published recently on the subject of health care with children and adults points out that hand washing is the single most important thing we can do to prevent the spread of sickness. The children and Staff at Agape wash hands before and after meals, going to or taking someone else to the bathroom, upon arriving the center, blowing noses, and after diapering etc. Please help us help your child to develop this habit. Please try to keep their fingernails clipped and hands and faces clean. We will try to do the same, except clipping nails.
