Early childhood centers should hang signs that instruct their staff, volunteers, parents, and children how and when to wash their hands properly. All adults should model proper hand washing behaviors so young children can learn (AAP, 2006). Chapter 3 of this text describes proper hand washing procedure in more detail.

A bleach solution is a good way to disinfect surfaces. It is effective against bacteria and viruses, is safe, inexpensive, and easy to get (Thiel, 1999). Every day, mix a fresh batch of solution that is ¼ cup of bleach per gallon of water. This mixture can be used to wipe surfaces that have come in contact with numerous germs, such as feces on changing tables, or it can be used to soak hair combs to kill lice. If a staff person has to clean a surface that has been exposed to blood, latex gloves should be worn and the amount of bleach should be increased to one cup per gallon of water (Aronson, 2002).
