Generally speaking, I wouldn't worry too much, they just might not be ready yet. Every child learns at their own pace, and when they are ready, they will get it. By the time they start kindergarten, they can walk, talk, and are potty trained. Every child goes at their own pace, and that's OK. If they seem hesitant or afraid of using the potty, maybe try to find out what they are afraid of. If they seem completely oblivious and unable to have any sort of bowel or bladder control, that may be time to speak with their pediatrician about it.
