The Infection is oral-fecal way. In the body of the child, the pathogen can enter with dirty hands, if the kid was playing in the ground outside. The virus can be found in drinking water or food.

However, the main ways of infection remain airborne and household, especially if there is patients. The child can "catch" of the virus during a conversation with him, when you kiss, after sneezing or coughing.
