Four year old unhappy in creche

Hi, just a quick ask for advice, son was 4 back in July, he is full time in creche for one final year before going to school and he is now quite upset after seeing most of his friends there leaving for school, in his words ´there is nobody´ and ´same old toys´. He was never like this before. I think he is bored and needs to be engaged at a different level but I am not sure what options we have...is there any specific recommendations for little kids like him that could be ready for school but must wait another year?

Thank you in advance

Is he not on the ecce year? Kids that age need activities they can get their teeth into not just playing. Did you mention it to creche and they can shake up his routine.

Could you change the creche?!
Maybe go to a childminder who can give more attention and a bit more freedom so may be able to head out!??
