PHBS education in early childhood is very important. The children’s brains are growing
rapidly at that time so that it will be easy to obtain PHBS education materials. However,
materials specifically for PHBS early childhood education are not yet available. The purpose
of this program was to provide education and skills to Early Childhood Education (ECD)
teachers in presenting the material of PHBS for children in early childhood. This activity was
conducted in July 2015 at the District Office Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta with 53 ECD
teachers from districts Jagakarsa and Kebayoran Baru as participants. The material on
education for early childhood PHBS include 8 themes, those are: washing hands with soap and
water flow, put garbage in the trash, exercise regularly, cutting the nails of hands and feet,
brushing teeth after meals and before going to sleep, eating vegetables and fruit every day,
choose clean and healthy snacks, and the using of sanitary latrines. The materials were gotten
from brainstorming with ECD teachers on educational material needs PHBs early childhood.
Continuous and well-planned effort to increase knowledge of early childhood health for ECD
teachers must be made in the form of regular training activities as promotion and prevention
