She is merely going through separation anxiety. It is a temporary phase. You will have to prep her up mentally before taking her to school. But do not discontinue the routine. Your child is at a tender age. she is still impressionable and getting separated from her house, and you for the first time and that could be very hard for the little one, especially in the beginning. A feeling of fear and anxiety is natural. And this anxiety—referred to as separation anxiety—manifests itself as tears, and sometimes loud wailing, and a child would do everything possible to avoid going through it. This can be a very difficult and tedious situation for a parent to deal with. She will overcome it gradually. Time too plays a major role here just like in the other phases of life. It also helps the child get adjusted. Most importantly, persist and be patient, do not give up.
