Child won't go into school

My grandson is age 5, hasn't had any pre school, he refuses to get off the car at the school. I've been taking him every day, the teacher can't get him to go into the school either. His sister attends the same school, I had no problems with her, she is age 6.

Try taking him into the school when there are no children there so he can see and become familiar with the school and his classroom. Many children have school anxiety and it may be fear of the unknown that is causing your grandson to be unwilling to go into the school. My daughter was also very reticent about going to school, the teacher made this suggestion which helped a lot. It was still sometimes a struggle to get her to go, but within a few weeks, she had begun to adjust. Hope this helps.
