Handwashing resources for childcare providers & parents

E.coli is a nasty bacteria which can make children under five seriously ill as their immune systems are not yet strong enough to fight off infection. While the majority of E.coli cases happen at home or within childcare facilities, there were 49 E.coli outbreaks in childcare settings between 2010 and 2016. We’ve created the Rufus handwashing programme to help make learning good handwashing habits fun.
