Throughout the day, children will periodically be taken to use the bathroom facilities. All children develop their toilet training at their own pace. To promote good hygiene children are encouraged to wash their hands at these times as well as before meals. The above does not apply to babies who feed, play and sleep on demand. Children under the age of two, are not expected to necessarily follow the days timetable, but are gently encouraged to do so at their own pace. We request that parents/guardians provide the nursery with a daily routine of their child. For example: sleep and feeding patterns. Wherever possible this will be accommodated.
