Children in Powys are going to have to wait up to a year longer to start school.
From next September there won't be any more nursery classes available as the council tries to save millions of pounds.
Instead it's planning on offering two and a half hours extra pre-school provision a week.
For him I think it might be a bit better because he'll be more mature and he'll have more understanding of what's going on .
But for me as a working parent it's not going to be great because it means forking out for another year of childcare.

Education Secretary Kirsty Williams has launched new learning materials, including online videos, aimed at getting more parents involved in their children’s maths homework.
She says the new resources, which have been developed with input from three Welsh numeracy experts, aim to make it less stressful for parents or carers helping out with their children’s maths homework.
Booklets have been produced, and published online today, and include four maths calculations, at a level appropriate to each age group. Accompanyingvideos have also been produced, and filmed in a homework scenario, to demonstrate to parents and carers how best to help with each calculation.
We recognise the importance of parental engagement being the vital link between school and the home and have been speaking to parents and carers about how they can help.
One recurring concern seems to be a fear of maths and how they can support their child at home. Our new learning resource has been produced to encourage them to engage with their children and support them with their maths homework and it comes just in time for the start of a new school year.
