Fwiw, my kid is in babies, so I get to take him in for drop off. Sometimes as I'm walking into the room, another parent is walking out. I've seen some of the other babies (12-18 mos) cry when mom walks out of the room. And they ALWAYS stop crying within ~15-30 seconds (prob as soon as mom walks out of the building). A little snuggle from teacher, and they're ready to start playing.

My son is 19 mo. I walk him to his door every day, and every day he cries for a few minutes after I leave. I don’t think it has to do with how far you can go into the building but just going to daycare in general. Oddly we used to only be able to go in the vestibule and do a handoff and he cried much less/usually not at all those times. So I think it’s just the stage they are in. It’s tough to watch though, hang in there mama.

It’s tough, but that is very normal. Even before COVID, my daughter went through times of crying excessively at drop off. My guess is that it’s just a developmental stage they go through. It wasn’t short for my daughter either. But she really does enjoy daycare and the other kids. Her teacher was wonderful. They would also say that she would be fine very shortly after I left and she was always happy at pick up time. The teachers would say that any lingering always made it worse. It draws out the process and they get more upset. I talked with her every day on they way there about how drop off would go and how I’d be back later in the day.

I called to check in on her this morning and she was fine. Like she walked into the room and started playing 🙄

DD only cries when she knows I’m around. Lingering doesn’t help me or her or the daycare teachers. So I always made it short and sweet and she was always happy (the baby room used to have a little window - as soon as I turned the corner she would stop crying and I could see her playing contentedly). Now she doesn’t cry at all. I’m lucky to even get a “bye!” before she starts playing with her friends.

Totally normal! It was actually probably worse when my son was that age, pre-covid. He would not let me put him down and it made drop off so much harder. He still has a meltdown (he's 4) every once in awhile, but it does get much better with time! Hang in there... I know it can be so heartbreaking!

Yup normal. My 2 year old cried every morning and by all accounts had an amazing time as soon as a I left lol. She looked happy at pick up and speaks positively about school and her teachers I think they are just emo about leaving mama 🥰

It just worries me because last week she went no problem. She actually walked to her room without saying good bye to me a couple times and this week it’s the exact opposite. She’s crying and doesn’t want to be there. I feel so bad but I know it’s good for her to be there

Something may have happened. It may be worth finding a new daycare
