It is a time of adjustment for you both. Praise his good behavior when he does something right and implement some consequences for when he does not. He is old enough to understand that much. Also at his age he still does not have the vocabulary to tell you how this makes him feel. Also talk to his teachers at the day care and let them know that this is his first time in the care of others so they can work at helping him adjust.
