Default Potty Training Advice Needed =)

hi =) two concerns regarding potty training at 2 1/2 yr old dc boy is starting potty home, his mom says he does well and tells her when he has to go, and has done this consistently for several weeks now, as i require before starting at dc. he still wears a diaper at night, and comes in one in the morning as he comes really early and goes back to sleep. his mom suggested putting him back in a diaper at naptime, as well... other background information that is important is that i live in a split foyer, with the day care area in the lower level. we do, however, transition upstairs for meals/snacks but the day care bathroom is obviously still downstairs. here are my concerns:

1. mom states that while he will tell her has to go pee, he continues to poo in his pants if she does not notice him trying to go...while it is generally pretty obvious when he's trying to go poo (he usually crouches in a corner or goes off by himself and is really quiet), with 2-4 other kiddos around, 2 of which are under 2, i'm not confident that i will always be able to notice what he is doing before it is too late. and since today he was very resistant to even go near the "big potty" with me, i'm not so sure he would even go in if he was going poo...

2. my second concern is regarding the whole transition to upstairs for meals/snacks...if he is currently resisting even trying to use the potty, and yet the only bathroom for the daycare kiddos is downstairs, how does that work if he suddenly had an accident or needed to go? i've got 2 other kiddos in highchairs during the day, and obviously can't leave them unsupervised to take care of him...

so i guess my question is, given this info, does it sound like he's ready to be potty trained at dc, or should i make his mom work with him more at home and get him more consistent and comfortable with the process there first? or is this all just par for the course in potty training?

thanks for any advice!!
