Hiya, I know this post strictly belongs on 'Baby and Toddler' but thought it might get more eyes on here... My little boy is 26 months old and last month, I started him at a pre school for two hours per week (Tues 9-11am). He goes to grandparents during the three days I work (Wed-Fri) and I thought it would be beneficial for him to socialise with other children, get used to a pre school enviroment before nursery, etc. It's been 5 weeks and he still hasn't settled that well. He cries blue murder when I leave him, and cries on and off for me.. His keyworker say that he is improving each week, and he seems to know I'm coming back for him as we talk about it. The pre school manager has suggested putting him in for another morning a week (Fri- when I'm at work- seems like the best option), saying that he should settle better if he is going for another session. As he doesn't strictly need to go there for childcare reasons, I'm wondering if I've done the right thing. I know that taking him out would probably be the wrong thing to do right now, as it may cause more anxiety when he starts nursery for 15 hours next year. But can anyone offer advice, or what your experiences are of this? Not sure what to do next.
