How to Potty Train

This informal workshop is aimed at parents and carers and looks at when to start potty training, getting poo in the potty and what to do when things go wrong. You'll learn how to keep children's bladders and bowels healthy and will come away with plenty of imaginative tips and advice.

  • a copy of the award-winning 'How to Potty Train' book written by authors Jude and Di, designed to break training down into manageable stages. It also includes two read together stories to help your child understand what is expected, and stickers to motivate them to try their best
  • a sticker reward chart
