Our new exciting crowdfunding campaign is up and running! We have eight weeks to get the funding needed to provide Potty Tabs for nurseries. More children aged 4 and up nowadays start schools whilst still using nappies or pull-ups. The survey of education staff in state-funded schools in England carried out by ERIC, The Children's Bowel & Bladder Charity, in 2016 revealed that 70% of teachers reported more children starting school in their nappies and 100% of teachers claim this for children aged 3 to 5. Increasing pressure on pre-school and primary school teachers to deal with potty training is a rising issue that needs to be addressed.
Our aim is to raise £5,000 to be able to provide 5 packs of Potty Tabs (sufficient amount to cover up to three weeks of toilet training for a group of 10 children) for 183 Nurseries across the country and help thousands of children to become nappy free before they start their reception year. 5% of the raised money will be shared with ERIC, The Children’s Bowel & Bladder Charity to support their free helpline service for families and their new exciting campaign - Let’s Go Potty, providing families, nurseries and schools with potty training guidelines and help. We would also love to support free libraries and walk-in clinic sessions for potty training provided by PottyTunity.
