Primary caregivers invite children to get their diaper changed and wait for children to respond.  Self-talk is used to describe steps involved in the routine.  Primary caregivers label the items that are used during diapering.  Children are invited to partner by being encouraged to participate in developmentally appropriate diapering tasks.  For example, a child may be offered a wipe to clean his/her own body.  The first diaper of the day is considered the ‘morning meeting’ with the individual child during which the primary caregiver continues the transition to a group care setting away from family members.  


A note to consider:

Information about toilet learning for toddlers and preschool aged children are being currently developed to be added to this section in the near future.
