Potty Training

Sometime during this year, your child will start showing signs of being ready to be potty trained! If you see the signs or want to begin the process, please let us know! This is a team effort, and we need to be on the same page and do the same thing! Our theory on potty training is quite simple; it should not be started until the child shows signs of readiness, all parties are committed, and we are diligent.


Once your child is ready, please bring in plenty of clothes for changing. We are not big on pull-ups, but we will use them if you prefer. However, we suggest that you go straight to underwear at a certain point. We make a big deal about our “potty friends” and wearing “big boys” (underwear) or "big girls” (panties)!


We will take them to the bathroom every 15-20 minutes. If they are dry or use the potty, we will reward them with a sticker or stamp. If they have an accident, we will encourage them to stay dry or use the potty next time. We will never scold or punish a child for an accident. We are always doing laundry at school; if you want us to put the soiled or wet clothes in the washer/dryer here, just let us know.


If you would prefer to launder them at home, we will put them in a plastic bag to be sent home. Potty training can be a fun and rewarding experience. We are looking forward to this journey with you and your child! 

Important Notes

Our two-year-olds will participate in weekly extracurricular activities including Spanish, and KidFit. These classes are taught by local professionals who have all licensing requirements such as background checks. The teachers participate in these classes so that they can reinforce and incorporate what the children are learning into the daily activities and curriculum.


As always, assessments are done twice a year and are gone over in depth with parents during parent/teacher conferences. Don’t hesitate to ask to see your child's portfolio at any time.
