TEAL Patents’ Kiddiwash Clean Hands competition, exclusive to nurseries across the UK, has announced its winner and runners-up with each set to receive a portable hand washing unit from TEAL’s Kiddiwash range.
In first place and winning the Kiddiwash Clean Hands competition 2017, Skylarks Nursery has won a Kiddisynk – a freestanding unit which can be wheeled into position to provide a warm water hand wash, wherever and whenever needed.
South Normanton Nursery School and Jigsaw Curzon House Day Nursery were named as runners-up and will each receive a Kiddiwash Xtra - a portable, warm water, hand washing basin which requires no access to mains water or drainage.
Nurseries across the UK tasked their pupils with drawing their idea of a sparkling, clean hand for a chance to win a child-friendly handwashing unit for their nursery.
Creativity was key with each of the winning entries using coloured pens and pencils,paint, crayons, gems and glitter to creatively decorate their perfectly clean hands.
Designed to raise awareness of the importance of good hand hygiene and provide a helping hand to nurseries in the UK, TEAL received over 100 creative entries to the Kiddiwash Clean Hands competition each depicting their own idea of a clean hand.
Manty Stanley, managing director at TEAL Patents, says: “We’re overwhelmed by the response we’ve had to our Kiddiwash Clean Hands competition and by the high standard of entries we’ve seen from nursery-aged pupils as young as three.
“As well as being educational, our Kiddiwash competition was a fun way to raise awareness about the importance of good hygiene – both to nursery pupils and staff.
“Learning about handwashing at a young age is a lesson that will stay with someone for life. The Kiddiwash range provides an enjoyable experience for children and it really gets them excited about washing their hands which, over time, will encourage along-term handwashing habit.”
The Kiddiwash units will be delivered to the respective nurseries.
