Our son (2 years & 9 months old) is starting creche, we've had some "introduction days" where we drop him in for a few hours each day to become accustomed to the change.
Normally he's an energetic - but NOT hyperactive - child, he rarely sits for long, always on the go. We do lots of activities together, he especially enjoys the messy parts of baking and loves to eat the food he helped prepare.
However for the last few days he's come home from creche absolutely hyper, bouncing off the walls, and today completely sabotaged a cooking task we were doing. After creche he no longer seems able to listen, constantly grabs anything & everything he can reach.
It's exhausting, and worrying.
He's been dropped in over the last four working days, lengthening the stay each time. This new behavior is more pronounced the longer he stays.
Has anyone experienced anything like this?
I'm fairly sure this is a temporary change until he settles into his new routine, but obviously the fear is this won't go away.
So, should I worry, is it a watch and wait sort of thing, or will this just go away and we'll get our well behaved little boy back soon?
Update It took 2 - 3 weeks but he settled down :)
