DS started going to preschool when he was 2. He went to the same school for two summers and two school years. He had a rough day here or there but no big deal. This year he started at what will be his school for Pre-K until 8th grade. So far he is miserable. He's been crying every day at school and he's starting to cry in the morning before school. When we ask him why he doesn't like school he says it's because he doesn't like nap time. They have a mandatory 1 hour "quiet time." DS is very energetic and stopped napping when he was 2. So far there doesn't seem to be an alternative to laying down and being quiet.
I sent a note to his teacher this morning asking her opinion on the situation.
If this was your child, how long would you wait for him to try and adjust? Would you meet with the school for other options? Should we be worried that he's having so much trouble?
