Brief: Health is not only absence of disease; rather it is also a state of complete physical, mental and social well being. The health of the preschools children should include monitoring of physical growth and also a process of continuous health check-ups through a qualified paediatrician.
Hygiene is another important concept. Children have to be inculcated the values of hand washing, clean uniforms, clean nails, etc.
Vaccination is another preventive measure in healthcare. Eye check up once in the first five years helps to pick up many abnormalities which hamper the performance of the child. De-worming of children has to be done, as it reduces the problem of anaemia in children. The child should not be burdened with writing at an early stage as the hand muscles have yet not developed and it causes permanent handwriting problems.
