It is normal for them to develop separation anxiety at this age, even if they never had a problem with it before.

I take care of my grandson about every other day. My DIL works and my son is a student. My grandson is fine when my son leaves. Sometimes he acts clingy or a little fussy when his mom leaves but by the time she is out of the driveway he is fine. After they leave we keep waving and I say "later" and we start doing someting. Usually I get him a drink and snack.
There may come a time when your child is a toddler and she won't want to come home. That's happened with my grandson. We were lucky it was my son picking him up and he was understanding. My DIL would have been UPSET. I used to do home daycare and it's normal.
