Oral Health

At Sherwood Green Nursery, we believe that good oral health is an important aspect of overall well-being, and we are committed to promoting healthy teeth and gums through a variety of strategies.
Promoting good oral health in children is essential for establishing healthy habits that will last a lifetime

Educating Children on Oral Health

One of the most important aspects of promoting good oral health is educating children on the importance of taking care of their teeth and gums. Our nursery provides a variety of resources and activities to help children understand the importance of good oral health, including:


We use storytelling to help children learn about the importance of brushing their teeth and how to do it effectively.

Interactive Play:

Interactive play is an excellent way to teach children about the importance of oral health. We provide a variety of toys and games that encourage children to practice brushing their teeth, and we make it fun and engaging.

Visual Aids:

We use posters and visual aids to help children learn about the importance of good oralhealth and how to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Encouraging Healthy Eating Habits.

Good oral health is closely linked to healthy eating habits. At our nursery, we provide nutritious and balanced meals that are designed to promote good oral health. Our menus are carefully planned to
ensure that children receive the vitamins and minerals they need to support healthy teeth and gums.
We use an app called Blossom Parent to record our menus, along with nutritional information, to help parents understand the nutritional value of the meals we provide. This helps parents make informed decisions about their child’s diet and ensures that children receive a balanced and healthy diet that promotes good oral health.

Promoting Good Oral Hygiene Practices

At our nursery, we teach children the importance of good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing, and we encourage them to practice these habits regularly. Our staff members work with children individually to ensure that they are brushing and flossing effectively, and we provide
hands-on support to help them develop good habits.
We also provide regular reminders to children about the importance of good oral hygiene practices.This helps to reinforce the importance of these habits and encourages children to take responsibility for their own oral health.

Partnering with Parents

At our nursery, we believe that partnering with parents is critical to promoting good oral health in children. We use the Blossom Parent app to share information about our oral health practices and menus, as well as updates on children’s progress in developing good oral hygiene habits.
We also provide parents with tips and resources to help them promote good oral health at home, including information on healthy eating habits and the importance of regular dental check-ups.

Promoting good oral health in children is an essential part of overall well-being. At our nursery, we are committed to providing children with the tools they need to develop healthy teeth and gums that will last a lifetime. Through education, healthy eating habits, and good oral hygiene practices, we are helping children develop good habits that will benefit them for years to come.
By partnering with parents and using innovative tools like the Blossom Parent app, we are able to provide a comprehensive approach to promoting good oral health that helps children develop the habits they need to maintain healthy teeth and gums throughout their lives. We believe that this approach is critical to promoting overall health and well-being, and we are committed to providing the highest quality of care to children in our nursery
