Breastfeeding Friendly

Carlibar nursery is an accredited Breastfeeding Friendly Nursery, we welcome any mums/carers/relatives dropping off or picking up children, wishing to feed their baby on the premises.



Childsmile is a national programme designed to improve the oral health of children in Scotland and reduce inequalities both in dental health and access dental services. Good oral health in childhood means healthy teeth and gums throughout life. Childsmile is working to ensure all children, regardless of income or background, have the best possible start.  Young children need help with tooth-brushing on a daily basis, with research showing us we need to brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.

For more information :

Carlibar Nursery continues to participate in the Child Smile programme. As part of this initiative your child (with your permission) will brush their teeth during their nursery session. Over and above this however it is requested by our Oral Health Adviser Debbie Wilson that the following key messages and expectations are shared with all parents:

  • Twice daily brushing for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste
  • Reduce and restrict sugary foods and drinks to mealtimes
  • Regular dental visits including fluoride varnish application
