Welcome to 2B!
Hello and welcome to 2B! Here at Learning Edge Childcare & Preschool, 2B is considered one of the Transitional rooms because the children are only here for about six months or until they reach 3 and are potty trained. Potty training is one of our biggest goals here in 2B, we have also included a potty training section in this packet!
Using our daily schedule we help the children build a routine structure for the classroom. For our curriculum we use the alphabet as a guideline for our themes. Each week we introduce a new letter to the children and work our themes around the letter. The children are asked to bring in something that starts with this letter. We also do seasons, shapes, and other fun themes each month. We incorporate songs and finger plays relating to the themes.
Remember at anytime you are welcome to come to us with questions, concerns or just to chat!
Please make sure you have:
Please label everything with your child's name or initials!!
On some occasions Art Time will be switched w/ Learning Centers in the A.M.
Some guidelines to consider on deciding to start training:
If your child coincides with most or all of the guidelines it could be a good time to start! A good way of introducing the potty would be to spend some time in the bathroom with your child and show them how to use the potty, and then introduce them to cloth underwear. Using larger clothes that are easy to change such as sweat pants and large T-shirts help as well. Excluding onesies, overalls, and jumpers. We feel using pull-ups during this time would have less benefit to the child because they feel like diapers, are more expensive, and harder to change.
Try training for a weekend and consider how it went. Having just a few accidents a day or less is great! Then you can bring in extra changes of clothes, remember that socks and shoes can also get wet. We will try this with your child for about a week, and it is important to that you are doing the same at home! If the week goes well we will keep it up, but if it does not we will stop and try again in a week or so.
Remember that this can be a very stressful time and we all need to keep in mind that it is harder for the children because they are learning something new. So let's stay as patient as we possibly can! We hope that this handout will benefit you and your child throughout the potty training process! Any questions or concerns please see us!
