    I had no troubles with any of my kids going to school. Mine were the kids that don't even want to be walk in to school because they are big kids. Needless to say i did/do walk them in.

    They love school well until gr 5

    Default Anyone with kids who don't/didn't go to daycare...?

    I will be sending DS to pre school at 4, like other pp,s we are lucky enough not to need to send him to day care but he has such a busy social life between play dates, soccer, swimming and lunch dates at times I think he is too social!
    My friend is a kindy teacher and she said you can tell which kids have not been to preschool/day care but after a few weeks there is no difference and they all assimilate very well

    My kids both go to daycare, if we could afford to live the life we want without me working, I wouldn't have bothered until the year before school. I work 2 days, the oldest goes 2 and the youngest goes once, my mum babysits.
    If you are worried about socialisation, playgroup is a great option. My kids go and love it. A friend of mine is a sahm, she has taken all her kids to two playgroups a week instead of childcare. It is much cheaper, and she made heaps of great friends in the area too.

    I wonder how all the previous generations fared without childcare!? All those poor unsocialised, traumatised children (sarcasm )

    Why on earth anyone thinks childcare is more beneficial for a child under 4 than being with their own parent baffles me tbh. I have nothing against childcare per se, but hearing comments like the ones posted on here where mothers have been told that they are doing their child some kind of injustice by not having them in the care of other people is ridiculous

    I agree 100% with this statement. As parents can't we bring them to playgroups, parks etc and be with them rather then feel the need to drop the,m off somewhere so they can play and we can have time to ourselves.

    Our dd does music school and swimming lessons and play dates as i have lots of mummy friends who are also sahm's. We are lucky like that.

    Of course there is always playgroups, library activities etc. The list goes on. Childcare if you must work is one thing but if you have the choice i think a child is better off with a parent handsdown.

    Just my opinion of course

    Nether of mine went to daycare. DS was absolutely fine when he started pre prep at four and a half and still loves school (is in year one now). DD just started pre prep this week (will be 4 in may). Didn't bat an eyelid!
