My 3 yr old ds has been going to daycare 2 days a week since January. In the last month he is getting increasingly upset about going. The only thing I can put it down to is one of the workers in his class left around the time this started but the 2 others are still there and are both wonderful with him. I have asked them and they say that he settles quickly and enjoys his day and that he doesn't have any problems with other children but where he used to ask to go to "kindy" now he says "no kindy" and starts to get upset when we turn the corner in the car near the centre. He has a severe speech delay so can't tell me why he doesn't like it. It's just such a huge turn around from a couple of months ago.

3 yr old not happy to go to daycare

Just thought I'd bump this for you
My 3.5 year old starts preschool next year and he has a language delay. It's hard when they can't tell you exactly what's wrong, really hard
I hope it's something that's not of any great significance and he starts enjoying kindy again.

Has anything happened to him there? Maybe change in daily routine? I would be sitting down with the caregivers and ask.

DD would go through stages of loving daycare then throwing massive wobblies when we'd get there. Often there was only one carer she would go to, so if it was her late day, it was screams ahoy!
She has always had great language, it didn't make it any easier. She could articulately scream at me that she wanted Cinnnnnndeeeeeeeeeee while thrashing in my arms yet simultaneously cling to me like a leech.
She went through different bonds with different staff over the years but there were a couple who, while she was happy all day with them, she did not want to go to them first thing. The days they were the only one there to take her I just had to let them pry her out of my arms and reassure myself that she would have calmed down before I even pulled out the drive.
It helped that I was then going to work, often teaching 4 year olds, who would do the EXACT thing with me (hysterics until 30 seconds after mum was out of view).
