Getting Ready to use the Toilet

Getting ready to use the toilet

A child's awareness of the toileting process develops gradually over time. These are some signs to look for:

  • · they can acknowledge they have a wet nappy.

  • · they can identify that wees is coming.

  • · they can recognize the need to wee before it occurs.

  • · They’re able to take their own pants off/on with relative ease.

We find learning to use the toilet has the best outcome by working with 2-3 children at a time who play together. Please talk with us if you think your child might be ready to use the toilet so we can plan for smooth success.
