DS2 - who will be 3 in about 2m comes home every day with skid marks ( bad ones ) on his pants. He is toilet trained but I guess I just assumed that they would still help 2 year olds with wiping, he practically falls in the toilet as it let alone trying to work that out just yet. Anyway, I've read that apparently some childcares have a no wipe policy? How common is this? I'm sure my other two were older then this before independently dealing with that. What does your childcare do.

Does your childcare have a 'no wipe' policy?

We don't have this. I have never heard of it. I've worked in a few centres and have never heard of it.

Maybe he is just taking himself off to the toilet and they aren't being diligent with checking his wipe skills. It happened to my son when we changed centres. He would just go off to the loo and he was asked if he needed help and replied that he could do it all. I just had to mention to them that he did in fact need help with wiping and they made sure that he was clean

I am usually a pretty easy going parent but it's the combination of issues you are raising- using (glitter!) nail polish without checking, fairy bread for arfternoon tea, and now having a dirty bottom all the time.... this would seriously cause me to be concerned about the quality of care here.

Oh dear...I've never heard of this, in fact quite the opposite - I was shocked with my DS when he hopped off the toilet one day and bent over to touch his toes so I could wipe lol. They'd taught him that to make it easier to cleanup properly!

Yep, the daycare my girls used to go to had a no wipe rule if the child was toilet trained. If they had an accident they weren't allowed to clean it either so they would bag the poop and undies in a little bag. I flipped my lid so they knew to never ever send me home a poop in a bag again. (My girls would very rarily have an accident either which the CC knew).
