Not just a day care, but even that versus home until; kindergarten. I have heard many say that children who do not go to some sort of pre schooling are both educationally and socially behind sometimes.
I think its a greqat social experience for them but not sure i agree with them being educationally stunted if they wait until kindergarten.
(I am really hoping we can have a good debate ont his, versus personal attacks and rudeness)

I think some children could definitely benefit from some type of preschool before kindergarten, while other children are academically ready for kindergarten just by the parent working with them at home. My big thing is that I think a child should be exposed to other children BEFORE kindergarten. Don't have the first day of kindergarten be the child's first time away from mom and the first time really getting to play with other children. That is just setting the child up for one bad day (and possibly a few bad weeks until he/she adjusts). Children don't have to attend preschool to get socialization either. Playgroups, parks, family outings will suffice.
