Brief Answer:
He will get used to it soon. Don't hurry.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

It is very common for children to cry and throw tantrums when they are starting school or something new. As its been only 2 weeks, give him ample amount of time to to get used to and don't hurry him into anything or force him. Starting school with just 1.5 hrs a day is good. Slowly increase it to 3 hrs a day so that he will have enough time to get along with the care takers there and make friends.

You can encourage him to go to school by rewarding him with something when he comes back home or send a small toy he likes along with him to school. You can request the teachers/caretakers there to spend a little more time on him till he gets used to.

Also check if the number of kids are more, lesser the kids more better, as they get more attention. Atleast in preschool years.

I hope this answered your query. Kindly follow up with further queries if any.
