My son is 4 and will be starting school January next year.
I am having a hard time trying to get him into a preschool. Some of the centres have no vacancies at all or have long waiting lists and others have told me that the earliest I can get in is November which is really no good to me.
Anyway, is it really that important that I need to get him in before school???
Both my kids are extremely well socialised with kids older, younger and the same ages as themselves. They interact and play well with other kids and I leave them in a creche with qualified carers for (I know it's not long) 1-2 hours 5 days a week. He knows a couple of kids that will be going to the same school as him from creche.
He did attend pre school up until a year ago one day a week and I never had a problem with him going or leaving him, we took him out for financial reasons but we can now afford to send him again.
Now I'm in 2 minds as to whether to pursue sending him or just keep him home with me until school.
