There were smiles all ‘round at a north Norfolk school following an award. 

Worstead Preschool has been given a ‘healthy smiles’ accreditation from Norfolk and Waveney Community Dental Services after deciding to teach youngsters about the importance of taking care of their teeth.

Bethany Pilkington, preschool deputy manager, said: "With the limited resources that Norfolk has regarding NHS dentists, we decided that we need to promote and teach our children good oral health. 

“Our children start with us from the age of two so adding this to part of our daily routine is important.

“The children are learning how to keep our teeth healthy by brushing their teeth after snack at preschool then cleaning their brush and putting it away independently.

"We promote to the children good tooth-brushing techniques and the importance of a good, balanced diet.” 

The preschool is based in Queen Elizabeth Hall in Ruin Road, and caters for children aged two to five.
