Finding affordable infant day care in Berkeley
I'm currently about 5 months pregnant and our baby is expected mid to late Sept 2019. I expect to go back to work about 4-5 months after the baby is born, so I want to start reaching out to day cares. I guess that means we need day care sometime around Jan or Feb 2020. I work in N. Berkeley near 4th St shops, so something close to work would be ideal. We also are on a budget, so... the more affordable, the better.
I've seen a lot of posts about this topic, but I'm still a bit confused and overwhelmed about where to start. I tried the BANANAS Bunch website and got exactly ZERO results when I tried to search for day cares. I realize I may need to get on a waiting list at some day cares... but I would rather not just rely on Yelp, and many of the day cares I have found don't accept infants. So, I'm just wondering 1) does anyone has specific recommendations for childcare centers and 2) is there any where I could get a list of day cares in Berkeley that accept infants (and are well rated)?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
