I have used this provider for less than 6 months

I'm concerned about finding so many incident reports but what made me look for reviews is that my child cries every time I drop him off, even when we get to the building, when they take him to the classroom he bawls and pushes himself away wanting to come back to me. I'm a little concerned he may not be treated the way he should be, his last daycare he loved and usually was just shy.
