Nappy and Toilet Training Policy

I am happy to accept children in nappies. I will need you to provide me with the following:

  • Nappies

  • Cream that you use on your child

  • Baby wipes

  • Nappy sacks

I will provide a changing mat, which will be wipes over with disinfectant between each use. I will always use plastic gloves when changing your child’s nappy to reduce risk. If your child is allergic to these please let me know.

I will change your child regularly and immediately if they have soiled a nappy. I believe that changing a nappy should provide lots of opportunity to communicate with your child and as their understanding grows provide time to discuss basic hygiene issues, preparing them for potty training.

When your child starts to show signs that they are becoming aware of their bodily functions I will arrange a convenient time to meet with you and discuss your plans on potty/toilet training your child.

It is very important that I work together with you to potty train your child and pick a suitable time to do so.

If I start training and your child is not ready then I can stop and start again when they are. Some children take to potty training overnight and for some it is a longer process, the most important thing is that I work together with you to give your child support and reassurance they need during this period. I will provide you with feedback on how your child is progressing.
