Is this something new or a recent development? Speak with your child's teacher. Does your child appear stressed at school? Does he/she participate? Does he/she have friends? Think about your child's overall day. Is he/she getting enough exercise, sleep, time with you?
My response to, "I don't want to go to school" would vary depending on the age of the child, but in general I would keep it short and simple. "Boys and girls have to go to school. When you come home I'll take you to the park." Give your child a family photo to take to school and tell him/her to look at it when he/she needs a hug.
It's important that children learn early on that going to school is not a choice. www.filedby.com/author/linda_griffin/1127154/
