potty trained at nursery but accidents at home?

DD is 2.9 and is doing well with potty training at nursery - no accidents there at all so far. But as soon as she gets home it's a different story - I took her to the toilet twice, she did a small wee the second time (about 30 mins after getting home), and then a huge one on the floor a few minutes later. We try to stay on the case, but all too often she won't go up, or won't go when she gets there...we've been nappy free for about 10 days now. Does anyone have experience of this? Advice?

many thanks

I am by far no expert but Ds was like that at home (would wee on the potty and then all over the floor just after) the only thing that seems to have worked with him is to back off completely and leave it to him to say when he needs to go. We do have a potty downstairs as I don't think he could get all the way upstairs without an accident but he will now ask or just go on the potty. Would you try a potty downstairs? When she is reliably dry you can move it further away until she can get to it in time. A lot of nurserys have set toilet and drink times so it can be easier for her to stay dry in nursery
