Daycare Center and Family Home Forum>Kids in Underwear That Aren’t Potty Trained

When do you transition kids from pull-ups to regular underwear at the daycare? I have a child thatís 2, and was doing great at potty training, at least for number one. The last 2 months he hasnít wanted to go at all, and very rarely can I get him to go. His mom just sent him in regular underwear with changes of clothes. I told her I donít usually let the kids go in regular underwear until theyíre completely potty trained, and lately he hasnít even wanted to go pee on the potty, and has never gone poop for me.

is this a normal thing that daycares allow? Iím fairly new to running my own, but I canít imagine how much time Iíd spend cleaning if everyone did this.

Two weeks dry AT DAYCARE is a pretty common practice on this forum. I donít care what they do at home, itís a sanitary issue. Yuck.

I require pull-ups and I determine when the child is ready for undies at my house. If the child is dry for two week then I decide on undies...any accidents and we go back to pull-ups.

When can children wear underwear here?

I decide, not the families.

I will tell them (families).

The child must show ALL the signs of readiness to even START potty training here (not @ home... HERE).
Daycare is much different than home and their readiness may show differently in each environment.

After starting PT, the child must go two weeks without an accident (including nap) and be independent in the bathroom before underwear is allowed here.

Thanks everyone for your replies! You guys made me feel much better. I told her this morning I donít generally allow children in underwear until theyíre ready, but I just wanted to make sure I wasnít way out of the norm for this! I know at the center I worked at that it would have never been okay!

What and how they do things at home has NOTHING to do with daycare.

Here, they must be dry and clean for two complete weeks with NO prompting from us to be considered trained.

If they aren't telling me they need to go...they aren't trained.
