    Default Suddenly crying at daycare drop off

    Hi ladies

    MY DS has just turned 2 and for the past few weeks has been hysterically crying at daycare drop off. He has been going since he was 6 months old and has been fine mostly. Is this a 2 year old thing? He's fine when I pick him up. I have noticed he's been more clingy with me in general lately.

    Maybe he's being abused there. Look into it. If my kids were crying hysterically in daycare (though i would never put mine in to begin with) I wouldn't hesitate to take them out. And yes I do realise not everyone has a choice.

    Has DS changed from the baby room to the toddler room recently? It could be something to do with that as they change carers and friends.

    Talk to his carers. I'm up to my third child in care and they've all gone through stages at about this age. It could be a stage but it's also possible that there have been staff changes in the room or a favourite friend has left.

    Or maybe he is just 2.

    OP my DS goes through phases. It is worse if there has been a change (new baby/routine/house move etc etc).

    Have a chat to the carers. If he settles quickly then that is good.

    my lo went through this phase a couple of months ago (turning 2 this week) of crying not wanting me to leave. Ask the educators - with my lo one it was literally a phase she went through (was like it at home too i wasn't allowed to leave the room) but they said she calmed doen after I left and had fun. I hung around out of her sight one morning and saw it was true :-) She's fine now again. Can you do that to check and ease your mind?

    Are you able to hang around out of sight to see what he does after you leave? He may stop crying straight away. My DD does this sometimes (although she's only 15 months old) and she stops crying straight after I go.
