help with toileting

We are aware that many parents want help with potty training or getting their young child to use the toilet independently. 

All children are different and they may all be ready at different times. You can speak to your child's key person or look at the resources below to help you identify when your child is ready. 

Once they are ready it is time to try. Speak to your child's key person so we can use the same routines at school as you are at home. This will give it the best chance of working. 

Don't be worried if it doesn't work, they may need more time to try or they may not be ready. Keep talking to us and we can work on it together.
