Potty and Toilet Training for Young Children

Toilet Training

Potty training is an exciting time for you and your child. We have found throughout our experience, that if your child is ready to master potty training, it will take less time. If it takes longer, they may not be ready and we may want to try it again a little later. We want this to be a successful time in your child’s life, not a frustrating one for all. We know that in order for this to be successful we need to partner together for your child’s best interest.

The following are a few of the signs we see when your child may be ready to potty train:

  • Shows an interest in the toilet
  • Can recognize when their diaper is wet or soiled.
  • Stays dry for a long period of time
  • Can undress and pull up his/her own pants
  • Wants to be independent
  • Can use consistent words or gestures to communicate.
  • Can try to wipe themselves.


Once your child stays dry for several hours and uses the toilet on their request, it’s time to start!

If the child feels too much anxiety or stress, it may be better to wait and try again at a later time. During training, it is very important to dress your child in suitable clothing and provide several clothing changes just in case!
Wonderland Montessori of Anaheim Montessori Classroom Bathroom for potty training.

Our child friendly restrooms are specifically designed for your children 2 years to 6 years. Toilets and sinks are child sized and height. Why is that important:

  • Feet rest comfortably on the floor. This makes sitting and standing up easy. 
  • Smaller bowl help alleviate the fear of falling into the toilet.
  • Toilet paper is within hand reach and can be quickly accessed while sitting down.
  • Sinks are lower to help messy spills and easy access to the faucet and soap.
  • Bathrooms are kept clean and in good working condition.
  • Each bathroom has only one toilet to give your child privacy but still allowing teachers to monitor and assist.

Jennifer S (Yelp Buena Park, CA) - Our son just began at the Star Bright Montessori School this week.  He has been in a home daycare since he was 3 months old, but we felt he was ready for more of a school setting.  As new parents to taking our son to school we were extremely nervous for him and how well he would adjust to the new environment. I can say, without a doubt, we are so relieved by his excitement to attend the school.  He came home his first day extremely excited about his teachers, classmates and his day in general.  On his 2nd day, he couldn't wait to go back and he continues to look forward to it each day.  The group of teachers and support staff that the school has is incredible.  All of the children seem to get along and play extremely well together and are all very well behaved.  The curriculum and approach that the Montessori school provides has been a very positive experience and we thank the staff for being such a great support for our growing children.

Monique D (Yelp Murrieta, CA) - My husband and I did a lot of research on schools in our area and when I walked into Star Bright I automatically had a sense of ease and knew we had found our daughters school.  The equipment, furniture and supplies appear new, clean and well taken care of and the children are happy, excited, BUSY and yet calm.  The school has plenty of natural night, giving it SUCH good vibes.  The teacher is kind, patient, knowledgeable, confident and most importantly, very obviously enjoying her time with the children.  I can literally go on and on about how much I think this school is perfect for my child.  (Oh!  AND they have brought in a professional dance company for the kiddos once a week!).  We are fairly new to Star Bright and already we feel so very pleased with our decision to allow this school to have the honor to begin our daughters path into her education 😉

Cr W (Yelp Cypress, CA) - This is probably the best Montessori school in Anaheim. Both my children attend the school and we love it. Ms. Elizabeth does a great job managing the school. The staff is wonderful and they are great teachers for the little ones. My oldest starts Kindergarten this summer and he already know how to read and write. I am really happy my kids attend this school, I would give six stars if I can 🙂

Rachel P (Yelp Anaheim, CA) - My daughter has attended Star Bright for almost 3 years now. She will be leaving soon for kindergarten. I am so thankful for this school. They have development my daughter in a loving and caring environment. The teachers are patient, kind and always available for parents. They push an academic curriculum, they just don't "watch" your child. It will be tough transition for my daughter as she has grown to love her teachers and friends alike. I wish all schools could operate as well as Star Bright does. Thanks you Ms. Kanthi, Ms. Elizabeth, Ms. Jessica and Ms. Jae for all you do!
