How do I make my 4 year old to like Pre-K?

He hates it and it is a struggle everyday! He asks me to take him anywhere but to school. I am getting calls almost every week because he is bad behaving in school. He does not behave like this at home at all, what do I do?? I feel like a terible mother and it breaks my heart that the teacher tells me that he is doing bad things at school. Any advice will be appreaciated!

Talk to him everyday when you pick him up...ask him how his day was and when he says bad ask him why? what made him feel that way? It could be he misses you and isn't use to school, it could be another kid at school, or it could be his teacher.

My son really disliked kindergarden, but when he went into Grade 1 he loved it.

My son needs structure and kindergarden isn't as structured as the grade level classes, also I think he bonded with his Grade 1 teacher ALOT better then his kindergarden teacher, and this can make a huge difference.
