Not knowing what you have tried, when working with preschoolers our rule of thumb was every 30-45 mins, you take them to the bathroom. No big deal and no excessive talking, we made sure that we were setting the children up for success and would encourage water drinking. Some needed a digital timer, some wanted a chart to show their parents how well they were doing. They all wore underwear and had many changes of clothes. Now I know that a childcare setting is sounds so much easier, just remember your son gets you one on one.

Wishing you all the luck needed,

Amelia
