We want all families and early years professionals to access reliable information about how to support good toileting.

With a good grounding in the basics of toilet training and an understanding of how to identify common continence problems, families have the best chance to help their child use the toilet independently. It's vital that parents and early years practitioners work together to give children consistent messages.
