WWYD (another preschool question)

I started potty training my DD six weeks ago and with me she's perfect – hasn't had an accident for a while now – but at preschool she's never actually been to the toilet. She goes three mornings a week so today was only her eighth day and apart from two days, when she didn't go at all, has had one or two accidents every time. The lady who runs the preschool has said that they don't mind as long as I don't, but I get the feeling her key worker is losing a little bit of patience.

I'm not convinced it's because she is distracted because she always asks to go during her dance class and even when she's swimming. I think it's because she's used to going with me and doesn't feel comfortable with the preschool staff yet as she can even be a bit funny about DH taking her sometimes. So, as far as I see it, I have three options.

1) Just keep going in the hope that one day they'll catch a wee and from then on she'll be OK and they'll just have to deal with it in the meantime.

2) Put her in a pull-up for preschool but this seems such a backwards step.

3) I attend one of the sessions (if they let me) and wait for her to tell me she needs to go and send her with her key worker.

I'm really at a loss as to what to do as she's so good at telling me she needs to go and I'm worried it's becoming an issue as she's been dry during her daytime sleeps since the day I started potty training but over the last week or so has started weeing.

Thanks if you managed to plough through all that!

Is the pre school staff asking her to go or reminding her?
With ds who has just started pre school, I went in, showed him where the toilets are and spoke to him about trying not to have an accident. It has worked so far.
Have you s[poke to your dd about going while she is there?
Sorry for all the questions smile

They've tried asking her and taking her. I've taken her when we get there so she knows where they are and that they're OK. I think she has some sort of block about going with other people – she was happy for my friend to take her to the toilet but didn't actually go. I think the preschool are going to have to just tough it out for now. I've asked them to try running the tap if they're convinced she needs to go to see if that helps her to go – I'm sure once she's done one she'll be fine.
