Toilet Training Process for Toddlers

Toilet Learning

The “terrible two’s”… perhaps you have experienced the oppositional behaviour that has given toddlers this reputation!

At Dearcroft we love this age, and view it as a prime opportunity for learning. There is perhaps no other time where learning care of oneself is so critical. This is a great age to have children learning to dress themselves, brush their teeth, and yes… toilet train! The process can be far easier if the learning begins before 18 months.

This video provides a great explanation of how Montessori Toddler rooms view the toilet training process.
