Fighting Flu Season

Posted on 01-19-2016 | Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies of West Friso & Legacy West

We’re in the middle of the storm known as flu season. Every year, parents all across the nation dread those four little words, “I don’t feel good.” Children and the elderly are particularly susceptible to contracting the flu so it’s important to have a game plan in place for staying healthy.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the flu is most effectively spread from person to person contact. While it is still very important to wash your hands with warm soap and water, it’s most important to stay away from sick people or stay home when you are sick. Cleaning off shared surfaces is also important to prohibit the spread of germs.

At home you can take simple steps to prevent the flu from spreading under your own roof. Teach your children at an early age how to properly wash their hands. It may be a tedious (and messy!) endeavor but the results of keeping a germ-free house are worth it. If you have an infant or toddler at home be sure to keep away anything that could be contaminated off of the floor and out of your baby’s reach. Finally, if your child does get sick please do not go to your childcare or preschool. It can be very difficult caring for a sick child but creating more sick children will only make the problem worse.

At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies of West Frisco & Legacy West, your child’s safety is our number one priority. This means not only do we keep our facility secure but we also utilize tools such as the ZONO sanitizing machine on a daily basis. The ZONO disinfects all the toys and furniture used by the children to ensure the health of everyone in our Learning Academy.Contact us for more information about how we keep your child safe!
