Daycare for Albany/Berkeley area

My family is moving to the area next February and my kids are 2yo and 6mo. I feel like I need to find a place ASAP. Had no idea there were year-long waitlists? And there's preschools with different schedules? It feels so crazy coming from living in a place where I call the best looking place and they just ask when did you want to start.

Please help with recommendations and advice! Thanks!

Hello! I would highly recommend Greenhouse Childcare, it is in Berkeley blocks away from Albany. My son attends and is super happy. 
This would be for your eldest, I think most people with young babies have nannies, we arrived when my son was older so I did not search for a daycare for a baby. 
good luck!

Hi, my kids and many of my neighborhood kids went to/go to Little Bears, in Albany at Marin/ Evelyn.  The caregivers are wonderful, warm professionals who care for babies to toddlers, and we will always be grateful to them.  :)
