We toured a preschool and I told them my daughter is 100% bathroom independent with the exception of "bad poops". Pee's she needs no assistance, even for hand washing. Most poops are ok but if they're smeary she'll holler for back-up. The teacher was sneering and eye rolling and not at all happy... what are your situations? Daughter is 3... next week will be 3yr 2 months. (PS it's a formal preschool a few days a week 9-1 pm not a daycare)

I use to be a Pre-K teacher. I had a 4 year old in my class who had a really bad accident. He tried to clean it up himself but made matters even worse. There was poop all over him, his clothes, the toilet, the floor, and the wall. You know what I did? I cleaned him up, got him some clean clothes, and then cleaned the toilet, the floor, and the walls. I did my job and that teacher was way out of line for the way she reacted. If she keeps up with this attitude, then I would report her to the director/principal.

My daughter was not completely "self efficient" in the bathroom until she was around 5 or 6. I forget the exact age. I have worked in many different daycares, and I would be pleasantly surprised if a new mom told me that her 3 year old could take care of herself in the bathroom. I, personally, think that is very rare. So good for her!
