A: Children arrive at WOOTH with different levels of development in the area of self-care. If it becomes necessary for us to help a child in the washroom , whenever possible we talk through the steps, and then offer physical assistance where needed. Our support and encouragement is given at all times in a gentle, calm, and reassuring manner. Readiness is often determined by the child being able to announce that he/she needs to use the washroom. If your child is experiencing anxiety with a particular aspect in the washroom, please let us know so we can be as supportive as possible. Our diapering procedure follows all the licensing guidelines to ensure emotional and physical safety standards.
