I'd remind them of what my policy is on PT.
It's all in their handbook, so it shouldn't be a surprise.

If the child is not ready for PT at daycare, I'd tell them he needs to be in diapers until all the signs of readiness are present.

Do you have anything in your policies about it?

I just had the opposite. Dcg was in panties for 5 weeks at daycare. Usually one accident on Mondays. Hmmm, wonder why?

Shes now back in pull-ups and hasn't used the potty in weeks.

Frustrating.

Reminder parent about my policy and then put child into diapers for day. I'm only cleaning the puddles up from my own.

Why not at least tell the OP what your policies are rather than just brag about the existence of them? 🤦🏻*♀️

Two weeks completely dry and clean with NO prompting from an adult is considered potty trained. Until then....pull-ups.

I don't care how they do at home. I am only interested in how they do here.

How about enforcing a policy OP should have had in place? Or better yet, You didn't offer one up so don't rag on others that didn't offer theirs

Is it that difficult to say "At my place I don't allow kids to attend in regular underclothes until they've gone 2 weeks with no pull-up accidents. This is what I'd discuss with parents at drop off."? We all know you have plenty of policies, this is stated endlessly. I would just find that as an answer frustrating and I know Core from another board.

OP didn't ask what other people's policies were....
She asked what others would do. If she wanted to know what specific policies everyone has/had...she'd more than likely have asked.

Curious, what does knowing OP from another board have to do with anything? Many of us "know" each other in other social worlds.

OP has been a member here for over two years, she knows my policy among many others.

I went through two terrible ordeals with parents who told me their child was "not allowed to wear diapers or pullups at daycare" because they wanted them PT'd. But parents regularly brought them in diapers and insisted they be put in diapers before going home. Made no effort at home.

Nope.

Now my contract says parents must potty train. Children may only wear underwear at daycare if they have gone 1 week at home without accidents. Child goes back into diapers at daycare if there are accidents. I encourage parents to take a week off or a long weekend to potty-train. And if it does't happen, then child isn't ready.

I had a parent do this to me last year. Boy came Monday morning dad informed me they started potty training and he was doing "well" in him underwear. I reminded him of my policies and said that until he was staying dry for at least a couple of weeks for sanitary reasons he needed to be in pull ups. He said ok but I think he didn't like it, I asked if he had pooped in the potty yet and he said no we haven't got that far, I said that's another issue, changing poopy underwear is a mess.I think they were hoping but we did pullups and what do you know, he wasn't ready at all, and mom actually said he was having accidents at home, I think they realized that he wasn't ready, about 6 months later, it clicked and he potty trained piece of cake.
