Default Toothbrushes/Toothpaste Storing

Hello!

I was wondering if you have the kids brush their teeth at your schools? If so, how do you store their supplies?

Thanks!!

I store them in pencil boxes in their own cubby, labeled with their names.

do you supply the pencil box or ask the parents?
Do you find that they get moldy though with them being wet or do you dry them off each time after use?

I rinse them in hot water and dry on separate paper towels during naptime, returning to boxes and cubbies before afternoon restroom breaks. I also provide both the boxes and the brushes so I can replace (1st of each month, and after illness) and maintain as I choose (bleach rinse boxes before putting in the replacemet brush). I buy in bulk, $14 for 144. https://www.bettymills.com/shop/toot...NONTBJRrelated

Pencil cases from the $1 store. They do sell online, too. https://www.dollartree.com/printed-t...x2x1-in/279823

I provide everything but a spare set of street clothes, here, as I only keep 6 kids, total. I find it easier to include in my tuition rate everything that effects my day.

Those see through divided plastic tackle boxes. Each kid get a section. You drill a few holes in each section to facilitate drying. Also works well cause these are dishwasher safe, so we throw them in a soap free (set on hot) load once a week for a quick bath!

I use the Brother P-Touch labeling machine . I haven't had any problem with the labels their waterproof I even use them to label plates, cups, bottles, spoon etc. the toothbrushes have the dates the brushes are replaced for new ones and kids initials. I do use disposable cups for rinsing , the toothpaste parents supply both brushes and toothpaste which are labeled as well. the toothbrush hold I got on Amazon a little $$ but worth and durable and fits just right in my whole set up . its more expensive now then when I bought it, but ill attach an alternate more frugal version her for only 10$
