Toilet Training

11th November 2021

We strive very hard to meet all of the individual needs of our children. Just a reminder that we will support parents in all aspects of toilet training. The best time to do this is when the child is ready, which is usually round about the toddler stage. We would like to aim that all children are toilet trained by the time they reach our Wellie Beans and Jellies rooms. This is good for their own self-esteem and in preparing them for their transition to school. We are more than happy to support parents with this crucial stage in development, whilst recognising that all children are different.
