Q.

best age to start creche

Good day,
My son is 2 years old, he is still staying at home with a nanny. I tried creche whe he turned 1, but he did not cope, he got sick all the time, looked unhappy @ creche, so i took him out, then i tried again at 1 year, 6 months, first day at creche - he caught a flu. I decided to keep him home a bit more longer. Now he is 2 years, 4 months, seems really eager to learn, play with other kids, but i am not sure if he would cope at creche this time around. What is the best age for kids to start day care?

Children of 2 or slightly older are usually ready to go to creche. It will also be a good idea to start him while it is still summer.Give him Creche Guard every day once he is at the creche.
