There are very few preschool teachers who still want to be changing diapers — if any.
By four, your child should have some autonomy when it comes to the potty, and if they don't, there aren't really many teachers out there who will be too psyched about it. Before day one of preschool:
- Make sure your child has been potty trained.
- Encourage them to not wait until the last minute to prevent accidents.
- For boys, make aiming a priority when training.
- Teach them how to wipe (though if they need extra help, make sure they know to ask, rather than walk around with . . . remnants — and on that note, make sure they're coming to school clean, no matter how hard they beg you to skip their bath).
