Bathroom Independent

Please remember that all students need to be bathroom independent.  They need to be able to verbalize that they need to use the bathroom, get their garments up and down, and wipe themselves after they have gone to the bathroom.  Staff can give the children verbal cues and reminders but we cannot assist in the use of the bathroom.  Staff will frequently ask the students throughout the day if anyone needs to use the bathroom.  We will also build this time into the classroom schedule especially in the beginning of the school year.  We will encourage the children to use the bathroom during snack, lunch, before going outside and before going down for rest time.  The children cannot wear pull ups during the school day, not even at rest time.  We ask that you continue to work with your child at home to use the bathroom without needing assistance so that they can do the same at school!!
