Ready or not? Toilet Training Workshop
Toileting is a challenging milestone for children and parents alike. More than simply learning a routine, toilet training involves a complex set of skills. That is why toilet training is even more challenging for many children who have difficulties acquiring developmental skills. For many families, delays in toilet training can be a stumbling block in accessing other services. To help parents with practical strategies to make your child’s toilet training experience easier, EarlyEd offers the Ready or not? Toilet Training Workshop for Parents and Carers.
Toilet training and development
Whatever your child’s developmental stage, you can support their learning and toileting skills.
EarlyEd can support you to identify your child’s current developmental skills, and decide what they are ready for next. We can help you develop strategies to take your child from one stage of toileting to the next. Our early interventionists have the knowledge and experience to work with you on issues relating to your child’s physical development, behaviour, and learning.
Tailored training options
We can help your family in the way that works for you. This might mean individual sessions with your key worker or a discipline-specific specialist to work out what your child is struggling with, and what skills are needed. Whichever option you decide to use will equip you with the knowledge and strategies you need to approach toilet training with confidence.

Toilet Training Workshops
Are you thinking about toilet training but aren’t sure if your child is ready or where to start? Have you tried but it’s not going well? Toilet training is an important milestone in a young child’s development. While it may seem simple, toilet training can be a complex process that requires time and patience. The key to success is understanding your child’s readiness. EarlyEd offers workshops for both parents/carers and childcare professionals which cover:
- Understanding the signs of readiness
- Skills needed for toilet training
- Tips for making learning easier
These workshops will help answer any questions you may have about toilet training and how to make your child’s toilet training experience easier.
