If the daycare people and teachers are not letting him use the potty because they think that he is to young i would definatly find a new place to put him in daycare.

i must say, I definately agree! New daycare. And good luck. I have a friend who has a 5 y/o daughter, she's half potty trained. She'll go #1, but everytime she has to go #2, she DEMANDS a diaper. If you don't give her a diaper she will hold it in and hold it in and make herself constipated.

That sounds like it's something mental or emotional, there's a reason he's doing that, I think you need to sit him down and speak to him, talk to him about what he's feeling. Something is surely troubling him. Maybe he needs more attention. You can also speak to your pediatrician about it.
