5 year old son scared of anything new

Hi I am not sure if this is a great place to put this and I am new to circle of moms . My son just turned five years old in May. He's always been very shy and quiet around new people wear those he has not been around in a while and I'm afraid he gets that trait from me and his dad.

He refuses to try anything new and cries every morning when I drop him off at daycare and will cry often on throughout the day . Some of the workers there he will not talk to if it's one on one he's okay . Is this normal behavior for a five-year-old ? He is our only child . If we take them to the playground and there are several children there he gets nervous and won't play. His pediatrician says that this is normal but in my heart I feel like he's missing out on so much. He is a great kid and carries on normal conversations at home And with other family members. Any advice or input on what we can do to make him more comfortable and get him to try more activities?
