Angry Daycare Child Crying All The Time

I have a 3 year old boy in my daycare who has been here for about 2 months. Initially he did pretty well transitioning into a new place. But it has all gone down hill from there. He has hit, bit, pushed, kicked & punched other kids in the daycare. Most incidents were unprovoked but some were typical 3 year old behavior. It seems like each week we have gone through a phase related to his behavior. The past 2 weeks his behavior issue has been crying. He cries over everything! If he is mean to someone & I tell him to apologize he cries. If he asks me if his mommy has called and I tell him no, he cries. It's constant and the crying can last as long as an hour at a time. So I came up with what I thought might be a solution I created a crying corner where he can go to be alone & cry. He knows it's not punishment and he can get out at anytime, I don't ask him to stop when he is there and he gets no attention or toys to play with. The crying corner does not deter him and only makes it so the kids don't want to play near where he is. Another thing that he does as I've already mentioned a little is he askes about his mom all day long. I reassure him that mommy always comes to get him and that she will be here after snack but he continues to ask. He follows me around the house asking my or telling me anything and everything about his mommy and that he wants to go home. At times he will play with the other kids but mainly plays by himself or cries or follows me around. I am at a loss with what to do with this little boy. Can anyone offer up some advise????

He's zappping my energy in Olympia!~
