Potty training and preschool

Some schools require children to be potty ready before preschool. I know that we are one of them. Because of the quality of care that you can provide children, changing diapers all day is a full time job. If you do end up at a school that does change diapers, you need to ask the question: Is there someone on staff that really does this? Obviously, children are going to go to the bathroom at different times and it takes away from the other kids to actually provide the quality care that they need. When we say potty ready, we don't expect the child to never have an accident. I think that's a misconception. We are prepared for the kids to have accidents. In fact, our teachers will teach your child to use the potty correctly, wipe correctly, flush correctly, and wash their hands. It is important for you, as a parent, don't pick them up, put them in the car, and then put the diaper back on because you have done yourself an injustice. You need to be on the same page. The end of the day, the only way to learn is to take the diaper off.

Renae Plant

Preschooler Director

Australian native Renae Plant saved Los Angeles-based Camelot Preschool on February 14, 2008 along with a handful of parents who believed that Camelot should remain a community preschool. Over the years, Camelot has flourished under her leadership as owner/director. Renae improved the campus with eco-friendly bamboo floors, synthetic grass, themed sand castle and play structures. Her biggest accomplishment was turning a run-down shed, in record time, into an eco-friendly, open plan classroom with natural skylights and a special indoor/outdoor feel. Most recently she planned and added a Kindergarten Program to compliment the school and continues to implement new exciting parent involvement programs as well as Music, Spanish, Yoga and Sign Language.  She oversees the day-to-day running of Camelot as well as juggling her hubby Livinio and three kids, Ilan, Mateo and Deklan, (all of whom attended Camelot) and her bump maternity clothing line.
