Default Daycare morning grief

Every morning when I dropp of Siler for daycare he gets very upset. The last 2 weeks have made it worse. He not only cries, but he goes to the door and tries to run out, even when I am still with him in the room.
Today he said "Let me get out of here..."

One of his teachers is pretty good in just taking him and doing playdoo or something else which distracts him quickly. But I am getting concerned that he is so unhappy every morning.

Do you have any suggestions what I could do to help the transition?

I will really be concerned if after three months "the most" he is not happy with staying at the daycare, i will investigate more on why is he not happy there or what makes him not feel comfortable with the place.

took to the teachers to see what they say, or if possible try to spend some time with him at the daycare (if they let you) so you can observe him and find out what is making him so uncomfortable.

good luck, i wish you the best.

I don't have any experience or advice, but I'll be keeping you in my thoughts. I hope that this is just a temporary phase, and that soon Siler will be back to his happy daycare-going self.

I am sorry it's been so hard to drop him off in the morning.

James does resist going to school occasionally by not wanting to get out of the car seat or crying when I drop him off, but it's only once a month or once every 6 weeks so I usually attribute it to him being extra tired or having an off day. I would be a little concerned though if he did that every day. Did something change and could you speak with Siler's teachers to find out why that's happening? I hope you find something that helps with the transition

I see that Brennan goes in stages.... he's good now, but a few weeks ago he would break my heart.

I think at this age they know you are leaving, but also know you are coming back, so keep reminding him, etc--
