We moved from Oakland to Lafayette when our son was the same age and the childcare was definitely one of the biggest challenges. We had a nanny he loved in Oakland that we were all so sad to leave behind. We had planned to get a nanny in Lafayette, but had a surprisingly hard time. They are certainly out there, just not as many as I would see advertised in the Oakland area. I suggest joining Lamorinda Families on Facebook, Lamorinda Moms and Nextdoor as a way to see nanny postings (and on BPN of course).
We ended up putting our son at Lamorinda Montessori in Moraga and have been quite happy. Drop offs are still hard (just the fact that mama is leaving is tough), but I think doing something totally different rather than kind of similar to before has actually been helpful. And I think it has been a good time frame to transition to day care for him. Many of the preschools in the area don't start until age 2, so that will be your biggest challenge, but I would definitely recommend checking out Lamorinda Montessori for their toddler program. We also tried for the Firehouse School and LVMS and they didn't have any spots. There are also some in-home day cares in the area, but spots can be hard to come by.
Feel free to let me know if you have any other specific questions!
