attachment behavior
i have a 22months old daughter who is very attached to me, i put her in a day care nursery but she only feels secure if and only if someone of the instructors held her hand or hugged her during all day period. she fears her dady as well. (me and my husband are seperated before she was born) and when i try to drop her at my mom's after nursery, she does the same thing that she does when i drop her at ther nursery in the morning, crying and shouting.. this behaviour is new, she wasnt that attached to me 2months ago.. what should i do?

This is super normal for a child to go through.  My son is almost 3 and goes through these periods every now and then.  Lots of reasurrance is important an of course extra attention.  When I get home from work, I make sure my son has my undivided attention until bed time.  I usually prepare next nights dinner after he goes to bed and that's when I tidy up, do dishes, whatever as well.  For him that seems to work - they just need us and unfortunately we do also need to pay the bills.  It's finding the balance - you will.
