DS going backwards in nursery

Shall I ask again for him to go into the next class up?
Picked DS up this evening from nursery and they had changed his clothes as made a bit of a mess at dinnertime. It was soup! I just made a comment that he seems to not want to use his spoon/fork of late and the teacher told me " that's probably because most of the other children are much younger"

He was supposed to go up into next class in Sept, but when I spoke to manager a couple of months ago, she said they are trying to change the age groups in the classes. I think she was saying they are staying in that class until 2 1/2. He is now the oldest in the class, just turned 2
I just don't want him to be disadvantaged. i would rather he learnt from the older kids rather than the younger kids
Am I being silly?

No I don't think your being silly at all, if your ds is ready for the next group then he should be with them. But from a Nursery pov staff ratios may be an issue as under 2's are 1:3 and over 1:4, so may simply be a case of waiting until someone turns 3 when ratio is 1:8 and frees a space in the next group, I would ask if this is the case at least then you will have a timescale and an action plan.
