Post subject: Pre school!
Please can anyone offer me any advice?
I have a gorgeous little boy who will be 4 in october, he started pre school in september last year and I have never had a problem leaving him, not even on the first day, however today has been a different story, he was absoloutely hysterical and would not let go of me and was insisting he was coming home with me, I left him cuddling one of the teachers and have since spoke to the them and thay say he has settled, I left there an absolute wreck, it feels so wrong to leave them there when they are crying.
Any tips to help would be brilliant

Hi hun he had enjoyed himself but was very quiet
I think he may be getting the flu though.
I had a 24 hour thing on saturday and when we got home he didn't want any lunch and just went to sleep on my knee (not like him) he woke up after an hour on fire, he was so hot bless him, I rang the docs but they didn't have a doctor available, so he has had some calpol (I was giving him an hour then taking him to the hospital). The calpol has helped and he now wants some tea so am just making him a bit of soup.
Thanks for asking, sorry for the long post, are you ok?

this wont help any but there is hope...
when my son used to go to nursery he was ok till the doors opened then he would cry and one of the helpers used to take him. Every day for a fortnight he threw up on her, i could not apologise to her enough but she said once id gone hed run off and play and was laughing when i went to pick him up. Then all of a sudden he just stopped and even wanted to go on weekends, to this day i dont know why he was like it and the nursery staff said he wasnt the first and wont be the last. i just felt bad for the one he was always sick on

Hi Huntermac, probably me more than him, just hate seeing him so upset it felt very wrong leaving him crying with someone else xx
I was mainly asking because I will be facing the same thing soon with day care and like you I think I will feel guilty leaving if he is crying We are just big softies a I bet he enjoyed that special cuddle and nap with you after you picked him up, mums the best medicine when they not feeling well, that always makes me feel special. Hopefully things will turn out good like it did for Bromley, then they wont be able to get away from us fast enough Hope he is feeling better and have courage for the next pre school day!!!!

You are completely right about mums being the best medicine, he became quite poorly in the afternoon, we went to a&e and he was running a temp of 40 but thankfully this came down and with lots of cuddles (and some nurofen and calpol) he his feeling a lot better).
You will be fine when the time comes for your little one to go to pre school, you probably will shed a few tears and he might when you first leave him but he will love it, lots of new toys to play with and other children just like him.
