Safe Food Handling, Toileting, and Handwashing July 29, 2019
Handwashing - Although it sounds like a very simple and basic practice, the importance of handwashing in preventing the spread of illness cannot be overstated. At the end of this training participants will be able to : 1) state the importance of hand washing, 2) describe the steps involved in washing hands thoroughly, 3) list the times when hands must be washed (after toileting, before eating, etc) and 4) explain ways to teach hand-washing skills to children and support children in acquiring these skills. This training is designed for teachers and support staff for Head Start's infant/toddler and preschool classrooms. Toileting - In this training participants will review diapering and toileting procedures in the child care setting. Participants will learn the signs to recognize when children are developmentally ready to begin toilet training and how to support them in this endeavor. Participants will review safe and sanitary toileting procedures. Participants will have resources to share with parents about toilet training so consistent messages will be used both at home and at school. This training is designed for teachers and support staff for Head Start's infant/toddler and preschool classrooms. Food Handling - In this training participants will learn the basic principles of safe food handling: clean (hands and surfaces), separate (raw meats/poultry from produce), cook (to proper internal temperature), and chill (keeping refrigerated foods at the proper storage temperature). We will relate these principles to foods being offered in the classrooms and on outings. This training is designed for teachers and support staff for Head Start's infant/toddler and preschool classrooms.
