Our 4 year old started school this September (Reception, we live in the UK). Initially everything was very good, but then she started complaining that she is afraid to leave her parents when she enters school. This got worse over the last couple of weeks, and today the school staff had to carry her into the classroom, and she was crying all the time.
Once inside the classroom, she seems to be doing rather well. The teacher is happy with her, apart from the morning tantrums of course.
Previously she was attending a nursery. Initial 2 months were also really difficult, but then she adapted really well and complained that she couldn't go there every day. We are trying to talk to her, explain, try to find out what she is really afraid of, but so far we failed. What can we do to help her adapt to the school?
