Baby clinging to nursery staff

For the last fortnight or so my little girl has been clinging to nursery staff on collection. Literally squirming away from me.
Once in the car she's asleep soon.
She's not quite 18 months.
Please give me some reassurance

Have you had any bonding issues?

Do you feel aside from this you have a good 'attachment'?

It's a phase a lot of them go through. I think they're happy with either cater, but they just don't like the handover bit. Some kids really don't like saying goodbye. Does she cling to you when you drop her off?

No bonding issues. Until recently very clingy at drop off but now happy to be there

My dd went through a phase of running away as fast as she could as soon as she saw me when I came to pick her up! I literally had to chase her around the room.

I wouldn't worry about it if you've no other concerns. It's nice that your daughter is bonding with nursery staff and better that than she be in tears by the door desperately waiting for you (we also had that for a few days...was far worse).
