Three Year Old Drop Off Drama

My three year old son is starting to cry and scream and run for me when I am leaving his daycare. It seems yesterday and today he is ramping it up and running all the way to the front door of his daycare crying and yelling for me.

The staff say he is fine after a couple of minutes but geesh!! It makes for a rough start to the morning.

This is the same daycare he has been going to since he was 1.5 years old.

I would try doing a reward system. Not sure if day care would allow, but maybe he could get a sticker...or put a sticker on a chart at day care if drop off goes well...explain what behavior gets the sticker and what behavior does not get a sticker. If day care does not allow then maybe a reward at home if the morning went well.
