Try also posting this query on the parenting forum. Separation Anxietuy ( if you do a Google search on this term, you'll find loads of material ) is common at this age, One's sense of time is poorly developed at that age, so being left for even an hour can feel like forever and ever. But also discuss it with those running the school, who should be very experienced with such problems. Tell him you understand that he's angry, but he will find the school can be nice and an interesting place to play, and that you will ALWAYS come back to fetch him, because you love him so much. Presumably he was less bothered about being left with the day mother, because he was at home with his own things. He will adjust, though the route to that may be turbulent for a while yet.
How have other moms among our readers coped with such situations ?
