Guidance on Toilet Training

It is best to plan for toilet training when there is a quiet time at home and you are able to manage this in your day. It should only take three to four days to achieve and is not difficult. Some children respond well to using the toilet or potty at a very young age whilst for others this does not happen until they are older. Achieving toilet training easily is all about getting the timing right for your child. We do not recommend persevering with training if your child shows little or no interest in using the toilet or potty.

Your child first needs to learn how to use the toilet and potty at home and be a little confident with this before coming to the nursery without a nappy. We recommend at least 3 dry days at home first. It does sometimes take a little longer for a child to be dry when not at home and so accidents will of course happen in the first weeks. For this reason we take great care to toilet all children regularly throughout the day giving special attention to those newly toilet trained with reminders and lots of opportunities to go the toilet.

To help with toilet training please make sure your child has loose, elasticated waist or similar non-fussy clothing which is easy to pull up and down. Children will often be in a hurry and clothing they can manage themselves also aids the development of independence. We will need plenty of spare clothing each day along with nappies or pull ups also as these may be needed on some days.

One week after you child starts to attend without wearing a nappy we may ask to review your child’s progress if there are many accidents.

Your Health Visitor will be able to give you more information and advice about toilet training.
