Oh i misunderstood. I thought she was only sending him for an hour.
I thought that at first too, but I think he isn't coping and she's being called to get him.
I wouldn't keep sending him there if he hasn't gelled with the centre & the staff. For his own sake. I'd look around for occasional care etc, also read "the highly sensitive child". And google "the stepladder approach" for a way of helping with the desperation anxiety
Ah right! I misread it, sorry OP.
It does sound like he's struggling, having insensitive carers is probably not helping the situation. I hope you can find a solution that works for everyone x
Thanks for all your replies. Sorry if there was any confusion, yes its my oldest son who is struggling. Sorry I was in a bad mood when I wrote it so was rushing.
He is only going for a little while because they want him to get used to being left and me returning and then once he's used to that then extend the time left. But he's just not getting used to it at all. I'm thinking about contacting a family daycare and talking to them about it. The only thing I like about a centre is they always have someone to sit with him but then again he's always with different people.
Just a little update. I've decided to send ds for 2 days a week to his cousins daycare. He adores his cousin and they have said if he is very upset they can take him to visit her room to hopefully settle him down. Fingers crossed this helps him settle in!
Good luck with your son, what a stressful situation. I've worked in child care for 9 years and have had a few similar to yours. Moving to his cousins centre is a nice idea. Talking to the staff and if they can accommodate by having you leave him with the same carer each visit would also help. Slowly stretch his day out. For the first little while leave him until just before lunch time then slowly increase the amount of time he is left there by an hour every week or so talk to him about our "mummy will come get you after you have had some lunch at day care" or "today your going to stay for rest time and then mummy will pick you up". You may find having a plan with the staff will ease things over time. He will be upset at first but if you really want this to work out might be worth a try. Good luck!!!
