Hello,
   As most four year olds are happy at their daycare/pre-school, its something to pay attention to when a child is experiencing this much stress at daycare. Your son sounds like he is in need of some help both at school and home. The symptoms you describe are worth discussing with a professional. I would recommend you ask your pediatrican for a referral to a child psychologist. Some children exhibit these types of behaviors when they have a disability or delay (such as trouble understanding language, a sensory processing disorder or even ADHD). A psychologist can determine if your child should be assessed (you can read my article on early childhood assessments for more information) or if he would benefit most from a course of psychotherapy to learn new social skills. This does not sound like a phase that he is likely to outgrow without some support.

Best Wishes
