Large motor development and outdoor play is a wonderful part of our day, parents are responsible to provide appropriate attire for all weather conditions.

You will notice that, just like home, diapering and washroom breaks are not "scheduled" for hourly visits. Diapers are changed frequently, dry or wet, while "soiled" diapers are changed immediately after the task is completed.

Potty trainers are watched for cues and provided regular opportunities for washroom visits, with suggested reminders during playtime activities that can make it difficult to remember.

Hygiene practice ~ performed before/after meals and after all washroom visits/diaper changes.
