Yes he will get used to it. He'll learn that you do come back and that all is well. He'll also discover that he has a great time at nursery. It's really normal to worry, but really, he'll be ok.

Poor you. Give it a few more sessions. Chances are that he'll reserve his crying for you anyway. How was he there today?

Most parents feel like this, i have had parents crying on my shoulder but it is 100% normal. you child will get use to it and as soon as he is doing an activity and used to the new faces will be absolutely fine. I have seen so many children that after a yr at nursery still cry when their parents leave because al children want their mummy n daddy more than anyone else and the moment their parents leave they stop crying,for children it is a big guilt ip on mummy and daddy. try not to worry this is all normal and he will be fine, the staff are use to it and if you say goodbye and leave swiftly the staff prefer it as by hanging around it prolongs it for the child.

It will get better. It will take a bit of time and you will feel really guilty but in a couple of weeks he'll be loving it. DS has been going now for about 5 months and we still have the odd morning where he cries when I drop him off but it's stopped before I'm out of the door. He really loves it there, they do really interesting interactive stuff and he likes playing with the other kids.
