When you feel that the time is right to start the process of potty training with your child, it is our aim to work alongside you.
We will encourage your child to go on the potty/toilet at toilet/nappy changing times. Children already in pants will also be encouraged to use these facilities during their play. Staff will be on hand to assist your child and we do reward success on the potty/toilet.
We have found that children are keen to copy their friends, particularly the older Pre-school children. Nursery provides you with the ideal opportunity to reinforce the use of the potty/toilet.
All we ask is that you provide the nursery with ample changes of clothes and a little bit of patience.
