Q.

What is the right age

Dear Doc
I would like to find out what would be the right age to send my baby to creche. He is a year and seven months now. He stays at home at the moment with a nanny that looks after him. He is happy, healthy and I think everything is going well. I just sometimes feel like he might need to start playing with friends as he really enjoys the company of other kids when we are around other kids.

Thank you

Give him a bit longer at home. As you say he is happy and healthy. He does'nt really need to go to a creche at all, but a playgroup would be a good idea at 2 years.
