Toileting and Diapering Image

There are a wide variety of bathrooms in group care settings; some are located in the classroom itself while others are located down the hall outside of the classroom. Some of the restrooms have child-sized toilets and others do not. One thing that all bathrooms have in common is that they have many germs located on the variety of surfaces and we all want to do our best to keep the spread of germs to a minimum.

ECERS All Stars ensure that children can use the bathroom when the need arises, and even prompt children so everyone gets adequate opportunities.

Key Points:
Keep the bathrooms as clean and safe as possible by properly disinfecting
Provide adequate supervision at all times

Monitor the flushing of the toilet
Clean messes right away
Check to make sure children wash hands adequately
