We recently moved back into the city and hence my son started at a new dayhome. This is his 5th day there today and the past 3 days in the morning he has complained about going there. This morning he freaked out so bad he was screaming, and when I went to unzip his jacket he hit my hands and began kicking when I tried to get his boots off. I ask why he doesn't want to go to the dayhome and he just replies, "cause I want to go home"
I am at my wits end. He has never ever been like this before and has been in dayhomes since 6 months old. He is almost 3 now.
The provider is an amazing woman, level 3 in childcare plus tons of great references. Also this is through an agency. Once we are gone he is fine and picking up it's hard to get him to leave. Please, I am looking for honest opinions on what to do because I don't know how to deal with this.
