How can The Children's Hand Hygiene Company help your teachers to support proper handwashing and care in your classrooms and beyond?

How can The Children’s Hand Hygiene Company help your teachers to support proper handwashing and care in your school?

For many children, visiting the washroom is a stressful experience as fear of the noise and power of high-speed hand dryers leaves many children unable or unwilling to wash and dry their hands properly. Puff the Magic Dryer and his friends give your pupils a washroom experience that isn’t intimidating or scary.

How can Puff improve hygiene in my classroom?

Establishing proper handwashing in schools benefits everybody. Cross-contamination and infection control is a concern for educators everywhere, as illness can quickly spread through your class or school when not properly controlled. Puff and his friends help control this by:

  • improving the school handwashing experience for your pupils
  • promoting a hygienic classroom environment
  • reducing infection
  • educating pupils on good hand hygiene to instil proper processes they’ll practice for life

Creating a positive handwashing process demonstrates your investment in children’s welfare and promotes a hygienic environment that benefits all visitors to your classroom. Teachers in schools and nurseries with a Puff dryer actually report their pupils look forward to the going to the washroom for their own handwashing ‘adventure’!

Why do children respond to Puff and his friends?

Puff the Magic Dryer is the world’s quietest fast-dry hand dryer designed specifically with children in mind. Children respond to Puff and his friends because:

  • noise levels and dry time are reduced compared to standard dryers. This provides a soft introduction to hand dryers that is the very opposite of the noisy and unpredictable dryers children find in most public washrooms
  • even children with heightened sensitivity, sensory processing disorder, autism, and other additional support needs find Puff and Friends friendly, accessible and easy to use, reducing the need for washroom supervision and fostering independence in every child
  • Puff, his friends, and their stories have been created to appeal to children as a reward for washing their hands properly.
  • When you make proper handwashing friendly and appealing, children quickly forget their fears and look forward to having their wet hands dried by their favourite dragon! Our educational resources help you tell these stories in a way that engages children, fosters independence in handwashing, and establishes proper hand hygiene practices for life
