    For a week pls spend sometime in the daycare with the child to ensure security. Let him build a bond with a single adult first so the child prefers that adult over you in daycare. Pls monitor how long the child is crying after you leave. Is he able to get diverted to other activities? This is quite common, dont worry just check whether the period of crying is reducing with days.
