My four year old is going from part time preschool to full time with extended care. It is a great school, but the problem is that most if the kids in his class are not in extended care so my son sees "all the other mommies" come get their kids. Todat is day 3 of leaving him in tears - not because he doesnt like it, but because i "take too long to come get him". Its breaking my heart, but i know this is the best & healthiest option for him. Any offers of suggestions on how i can make this easier for my little guy?

Keep reassuring him that you will be back to get him. say something like " mommy knows you are having a fun time so I pick you up later so you have more time to play with your friends" . give it some time. he will eventually be ok with it
