Daily Schedule:

In addition to potty training, the PT class provides daily educational activities. You will be advised as to what supplies are needed and are asked to work on potty training with your child at home as well. Working together with consistency will provide positive results. Be patient! Potty training takes time. Your child is considered “potty trained” if he or she can go three consecutive weeks with zero or one accident. Nap time accidents are not considered.

Your child will learn so many new things. Each day, lesson time is devoted to one or two specific areas. These are: letters, numbers 1-10, names of days of the week, colors, shapes, Bible stories and even science, thanks to the Ranger Rick series “Your Big Backyard”. Once a week is review day to reaffirm the information learned throughout the week. You will receive a report each day to let you know what they did that day and how their day went.
