Little Smiles is a dental health resource package that aims to reduce tooth decay in children aged 0-5 years. The package focuses on assisting childcare professionals to encourage young children to establish good dental and nutrition habits from an early age, which can maintain the health of their teeth and gums for life.
Little Smiles consists of a set of resources that can influence three components of learning:
- facility policies and routines
- childcare programs and curriculum
- childcare staff and parents/carers
Tooth and Nale is a storybook which complements this resource package.
