Young children in childcare centers are exposed to germs everyday and are more vulnerable to diseases being in a group care setting. Children from migrant families with little formal education might be more vulnerable because parents may have little knowledge about the importance of hygiene for their children, or they may not have time to reinforce healthy habits due to long working hours. To help address the lack of healthy habits among preschool children aged 3 to 5 years, I am providing a three-day lesson about how germs are spread and the importance of washing hands to prevent diseases at the Little Angel’s Migrant Head start in King City, California.
