What is your toilet training policy?
Go-Go Preschool programs that accommodate a 2-year-old class, will be equipped with diapering facilities on-site, and will work with families when the child is ready for toilet training. Please send at least a week’s worth of diapering supplies (diapers, wipes, creams, etc.) in a labelled bag to keep on-site for your child.
We ask that children in our 3 and 4-year-old program either be toilet trained prior to joining our programs, or are working successfully on this developmental stage. We understand that accidents will happen occasionally, and we will encourage and instruct your child through the necessary steps to ensure that they are comfortable and clean. We request that extra sets of clothing be kept in your child’s backpack in the event of a bathroom accident.
