Help from the hive please!

To keep this short, DS is 2 yrs 9 months and we’ve never gotten negative feedback at daycare. He switched to a new room 2 weeks ago and is the youngest of 18 kids. He only knows 2 of them. We’ve been hearing everyday about what he can’t do - can’t pull his pants down, doesn’t want to sit on the potty, can’t take his shoes off and put them on, and more generally, doesn’t listen or follow directions.

I’m trying not to freak.out. that he’s going to get labeled a challenging child or something but today at pick up another kid said: “[DS] never listens!” My wife thinks a kid woildnt just say that if he didn’t hear it ... from the teacher?

The teacher is not warm. She’s all business and no nonsense which I wouldn't mind on it’s own, but coupled with the negative feedback for two solid weeks I don’t know what to do.

He’s an angel at home.

What should I do? I’ve already mentioned my concerns to the teacher and the director and talk to him every evening about following directions in school
