How do I make daycare better for my kid

I recently just got a job at a daycare and I was a stay at home mom before. My 2 year old is really having a hard time adjusting and is an emotional wreck all day, refusing to eat anything at home before we leave and at daycare until we get home around 4ish...

    It takes time. They’ll find a teacher they bond with and get used to the routine. I found keeping the same food/sleep schedule on weekends really helped too.

    Are they in the same room with you? I recommend you ask to be in a part of the daycare where they can't see you, like can't see you from a window, won't have you walking through. If that's not possible then ask to be in their room. If they can see you and can't get to you they may never settle. I've worked in a day care with my kid there since 15 months, around 2 he went through a stage where he had to cling to me the whole time, he's grown out of it but there are still days where he wants me close.
