Well just take the advise from the teacher and let him slowly adjust to pre school and by then you won't even know your self, your little men be growing up .Alll the best and he will do fine.Cheers

Thank U Jennifer and Sharlene. I did keep him at the school until 4. they said other than the occasional meltdowns only difficult time was naptime. They suggested its a good idea to try half a day for the rest of the week to get him used to the new surroundings. It was his first time away from anyone else other than family.
We both survived the first day!!!lol

Let him stay. As someone who ran a home daycare for years it is best to establish the routine from the very beginning. He will miss out on afternoon snack, naps and other activities. Also it is can be very difficult to the overall routine of the class when children come late and leave early. I had a rule that all children had to be dropped off by 9:00 a.m. so to keep the children on a routine.
