I'm so overwhelmed! We are contemplating a move to be closer to DW's mom in order to help her out more, and I'm trying to figure out if we could even possibly afford to live in that area with the cost of childcare. Coming from a rural area with few options, I'm super overwhelmed even knowing where to start doing research to see what is available, what subsidies might be available (I'll still be in my masters program if we move in the next year), what public preschool's might be an option for O, and how to find a solution for N.

Not sure what I'm looking for. Maybe tips on what to look for, where to start? If anyone is from the north Bay Area in CA, maybe specific advice or recommendations?
