My 3.5 year old son started preschool this month (twice a week, 3 hours at a time). I just dropped him off for his 7th class. The first few times he was over the moon to go to school-- no separation anxiety at all; in fact he would literally ask us to leave. The last 3 classes he's been telling us that he doesn't want to go. Today, he freaked out at the door of the school and was nearly crying.
Although he is very verbal, I can't really understand what happened to make him dislike school. He has mentioned that he misses us, and once he told us that he was pushed during clean up time. After today, I spoke with the director who mentioned that he doesn't seem to like the 'work' aspect of school (cleaning up etc). That being said, when ever I peek in at him during school, I've never seen him look happy or excited.
I am biased-- I hated daycare as a child, and it just breaks my heart to send him if he doesn't want to go. I just don't know if I can trust my instincts on this-- Should I pull him out of school?
