I suppose the main issue is --- does the creche have the facilities to help him catch up where he's behind --- or is the school better equipped to do that. And things like counting, shoelaces and buttons --- can't he learn those at home ? Indeed, why didn't he learn those thigns at home ?

Hi CP Mom...
My eldest went to school even tho he could not do his laces and still could not say the afrikaans "R"... but today he is fine... preschool or grade "0" should prepare him for school, i agree...

Why dont you take him for an in depth valuation at a reputable professional, maybe 'arbeids" therapy will benefit him.Sorry I dont know the correct English term for "arbeids terapie".
