As any good teacher will be well aware, students do their best learning in clean and tidy environments.
There are a number of reasons for this, including:
1. Clean classrooms prevent the spread of germs
Keeping students safe and healthy is, of course, the responsibility of schools and teachers, and requires them to keep classroom spaces sparkling clean. Indeed, young children spread germs very easily through play and direct contact with their peers. By extension, they can easily leave germs on classroom surfaces and increase the likelihood of other children and adults getting sick.
To prevent this, schools should consider investing in a specialist cleaning firm to ensure that classrooms are germ-free at the end of the day, thereby mitigating the spread of disease. After all, sick days can seriously hinder a child’s intellectual and personal development, as well as causing a headache for busy working parents. Preventing sick days at their source can be hugely beneficial for pupils, teachers, and parents.
2. Tidy classrooms offer fewer distractions
Children are very easily distracted, particularly in today’s world of mobile phones and sleep deprivation. Working in a chaotic and disorganised classroom will only compound these issues, offering up a number of distractions that can make learning almost impossible.
To avoid this, teachers must ensure that their classrooms are clean before every session. As well as being distracting, ramshackle classrooms may cause students to lose respect in their teacher, as it is difficult to remain authoritative if you can’t seem to maintain control over your space.
3. Clean classrooms offer a more pleasant learning experience
Ensuring that learning materials are stored in a clean and orderly fashion will help to make pupils’ learning experiences more fulfilling. As well as saving the time that could be spent looking for crayons, writing materials, or puzzles, an orderly classroom will make children feel calmer and more willing to engage with activities.
4. Keeping clean helps generate good habits
Children are highly impressionable and tend to be creatures of habit; in this way, it is important that teachers are good role models by running organised classrooms. Of course, not every teacher has time to thoroughly clean their classroom, so hiring professional services could be hugely beneficial.
