Why does my 3 year old say "I don't want to learn new things?"

My 3 1/2 year old boy does not like going to school. He won't tell me why and he says things like " I don't want to learn new things" or when I pick him up from the school bus and ask him what he did in school he will say, "Let's talk about that later, I don't want to talk about that now" I have never heard of a toddler coming right out and saying they don't want to learn new things. What is going on? I have asked the teachers how he interacts at school and they always say he is happy and chatty and playing with friends; however, if I ask him who his friends are at school, he only mentions the older girl he rides the bus with.....she isn't even in his class and one other girl who I know is pretty much nice to everyone. He always seems pretty happy when he gets off the school bus but he usually seems disinterested in talking about school. He also has suddenly become interested in germs. I don't want to call it a phobia, but he is always asking about germs and if there are germs on this or germs on that. I have always made sure my kids wash their hands when they come in from outside or after they use the toilet. I'm not obsessed with germs, but I do make sure my kids know about germs.....Why all of a sudden is he becoming almost obsessed with germs?
