Worming is an ongoing regime throughout the dogs life, so it would be beneficial to teach your children good hygiene.
If the breeder has wormed regularily throughout the puppies life, then the risk should be minimal. Make sure your children dont put their hands in their mouths, that they wash them after handling the puppy, and of course keep them away from any feces.
It may be an idea to keep the puppy away from the childrens toys and belongings, just to be on the safe side.
Recently read an article about this and the statistics that are put our are quite wrong
whilst it is a risk and you certainly should worm your dog to prevent it I believe the incidence of actual infections is in single figures in this country per year.
Having said that I still would encourage your children to wash hands and not rub eyes etc.
wish I could remember where I read about it
practising good hygiene by handwashing,cleaning poo up in garden immediatly will help
