The trouble can be that if instead of re-assuring her that she won't be left, if one puts in place too many precautions, one risks confirming her fears, and the message that, but for the precautions she has asked for, she would indeed be deserted. She needs to learn --- as do all youngsters, that even when you go to creche, mom is still mom and is still there, even when mom isn't in sight. Mona's sugestions about checking out a creche sound excellent, too.
And it's interesing that you comment " the way I was kept ( away from the world)" --- it may be that your unaware discomfort with the separation could be communicating themselves to her. Maybe you can, ( unless you choose to enlist the help of a child psychologist ) try to help her get used to your absences, by arranging for more,, but minor, and gradually lengthening absences, so she can learn that mom goes and comes back !
Good luck in the creche hunt !
