hai my son when he was 1yr and 11 months i starts taking him to the play area ... slowly made hi familiar to the staff and when he strtd familiarizing i put him n the play school.... though he took sometime to adjust bt he starts communicating more... the play school s a place where kids get motivated to talk more... aachi deen of similar age mingle... dey will be silent spectators fr sometime and slowly get over... the difference they make at home is also positive they start responding to simple statements and commands... dis makes handling them at home simple to an extent. we can also notice that when we take them out in the evening they strt to mingle with si. ilr kids who they see outside... toilet control, communication, gross motor and fine motor skills develop very easily.... particularly fr children between 2 to 2. 6 yrs of age.

But my baby,is not speaking good , can't speak much.. I took him in playschool at his 20 months , thought he would mix up well ..But he doesn't not want to mix up with other children. Initialy ,he used to cry a lot.. Now adjusted.. Language is a big big issue for him.. At the same time ,I m depressed whether He is autistic .. Don't no.. But he doesn't not want anybody except me,now not even his father.. I take care him alone.. My husband tries a lot for him.. Please please help..

@anisha- i meant if your child is already able to then its a good time. normally 22- 26 months is when most children start wth preschool.

@anisha - i would advice you to wait till your child is able to speak a little at least starts to ask for water, or any other help.

Hi akanksha and sandhya, even if your child has not started speaking, and you think that you are unable to give him time, then you must send your child to nearby school, where he can learn to speak. ans also always get in touch with the teachers and attendants of the play school and take daily weekly feedback.

@Jyoti yes the toddlers may not be able to remember but you may pin up the address and the phone number on your toddler's pocket.

Age is not a criteria at all. As long as it is safe and trusted it is fine. Also these days schools are more like fun and entertaining with learning. Kids are not forced to learn anything. So if your child is enjoying go ahead!!!!

Proximity factor is very important to keep in mind while sending your child to playschool. Play school near to your home or workplcce, should be preferred. so that you can pick and drop, and if you too busy for that even, at least in case of any emergency, you can reach or school authorities can get in touch with you in no time. Sop for me atleast a descent hygienic playschool near to my home or my working place is the first choice.

I Understand that it is difficult for a 2 year child to remember the address and phone number, but you can put a slip in his pocket, in his bag of all the details required.

Hi tried to feed my son with milk before going to school. but he does't feel like using washrooms in his school, and feel very uncomfortable, so i prefer to keep him light in the morning. I give him 5 dipped almonds, raisins, walnut.

Sending toddler to a playschool has increasingly become a need based choice. In that scenario, pointers as mentioned in the article maynot be applicable because the toddler is too small to remember the address and phone numbers by heart. I would still look forward for the inputs from our wise parents and experiences to be shared with bunch of us in dilemma.
