My 3 year is having accidents in playschool but not many at home help!(6 Posts)
Hey everyone I need some advice! My 3 year old daughter seems to be having a lot of accidents lately she's being trained since June with a few problems along the way bit I'm sure that's normal , but lately when I collect her from playschool there telling me she's having 3-4 accidents per day, but isn't like this at home I have being rewarding her for not having accidents with stars and lititle treats also I'm just at a loss any advice on what I should do would be great full!!
Sounds like she's getting distracted at play school and forgetting to go. The teachers should be reminding and taking her more often. Can you ask them?
Yeah I have being asking them and they said they have being bringing her in every half hour I don't understand it at all because at hone she just goes straight into the toilet on her own she's being in this playschool for nearly 2 years now
Does she have to ask before she goes? Does she sometimes have to queue? Is she worried that someone else will take the toy she's playing with? Maybe there's a member of staff she can ask to hold her toy while she goes to the toilet. Can she tell you what the problem is.
There could be many reasons. Taking her every half hour actually seems too often though?
Children do go though a regression phase quite often
It's that point where they learn to recognise that they need to go
If she is being taken every half hour then she isn't learning to recognise the signs and instead is relying on the adults to take her
Ii would ask them to stop taking her at all and to let her work it out. She is capable of doing it, as she does it at home
Yes, this can be frustrating but it is normal. I've had a couple of mine be like this at nursery when still being totally reliable at home. They get so distracted with all the activities going on at nursery that they just forget until they are literally bursting and cant get there quickly enough.
The staff asking her to go so often is probably not helping. When it was my dc, the staff would ask the whole group to use the toilet before starting the day and at snack time (they only did morning sessions) it really helped all the children establish toileting as part of the nursery routine.
