Preschool Two Days a Week: I've been really happy with Hope Preschool in El Sobrante (from I-80, take the San Pablo Dam Road exit). Although it is called a ''preschool,'' they take children as young as 4 months, which is when my son (now 14 months) started there.
It's on May Road (near San Pablo Dam Road), and the number is (510) 222-9222. You can drop by any time -- no appt. needed. I know it's a bit out of your area, but at least you'd have the reverse commute going for you.
The caregiver-to-child ratio seems pretty good. It's about 3 to 1 in the infant room and 4 to 1 in the toddler room. But even for the over-2 kids, the group seems small.
You have to bring your child's lunch and breakfast, but they have Cheerios and stuff like that for snacks. Also, your child can attend only two days a week (no need to go full-time). I don't think the not-potty-trained thing would be an issue. I have seen some pretty big kids there still wearing diapers.
Good luck! Jennifer
