Moving and in need of Toddler Daycare/Preschool in Concord/Walnut Creek/Pleasant HIll

Hi all! We are moving to Concord at the end of October and need to find a daycare/preschool nearby for our son who will be 17 months at the time.  We are having trouble finding a place with any availability and feel like our only option is to get on waitlists and wait and see.  Does anyone have any tips/recommendations/advice?  We would love to place him somewhere with spanish immersion but can compromise on that if need be. 

Concord/Walnut Creek would be ideal but Pleasant Hill and even Lafayette could potentially work.

Thank you in advance for your guidance!

Get on those waitlists! Usually sign ups are around January for the fall session for preschools. I have friends whose kids go to Kid Time in Walnut Creek (it's on the Concord border) and they love it. Maybe start there? 

If you can get spot, I recommend the Love and Care Learning Center.  My son was there from age 4 months until age 3.5 when we moved away from Walnut Creek. .  We loved it there!

My friends had great things to say about Springfield Montessori.

I have heard that there are many in-home daycare providers so you may also want to explore that route.

Good luck!
