Dimensions: 250mm (W) X 200mm (H)

To ensure a child's rights to  privacy while using the bathroom adults should be encouraged to wait outside the bathroom. 

This is a vinyl sticker for the wall or window of the bathroom and will act as a gently reminder for parents and visitors. You can leave the backing sheet on and use as a poster if you prefer.

This resource supports your child safety policy EYLF outcome 1 & 3, Quality Area 2.

  1. Privacy and Dignity: Children, especially at a young age, may feel uncomfortable or vulnerable using the bathroom with adults present. Respecting their privacy fosters a sense of dignity and helps them develop healthy bathroom habits.

  2. Safety and Supervision: Maintaining a clear boundary between adults and children in the bathroom helps ensure the safety and well-being of all children. It allows teachers and staff to monitor and supervise bathroom use effectively, reducing the risk of accidents or inappropriate behavior.

  3. Prevention of Abuse or Misconduct: Establishing clear guidelines for adult access to the bathroom helps prevent potential instances of abuse, misconduct, or misunderstandings. It creates a protective barrier and reduces the likelihood of inappropriate interactions between adults and children.

  4. Promotion of Independence: Allowing children to use the bathroom independently, without the presence of adults, encourages self-sufficiency and autonomy. It helps build their confidence and teaches them important life skills in a safe and supportive environment.

  5. Respect for Boundaries: Respecting the boundary of the children's bathroom reinforces the idea that certain spaces are designated for specific purposes and certain activities are private. This understanding contributes to the development of healthy boundaries and social norms.

Overall, maintaining a policy of adults remaining outside the children's bathroom in early education settings supports the physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of children while promoting a safe and respectful learning environment.
