What is the difference between daycare and preschool? And which is better?

I’m looking for childcare for my 2-year-old and am getting frustrated. I can’t swing the cost of many and others have laughable waitlists. Plus, everyone tells me something different about what to pick. What’s the difference between preschool and daycare? Which is better?

How does part-time daycare work?

I’m a SAHM and I work remotely from home part-time. Now that my daughter is a toddler and very mobile, it’s hard to set aside uninterrupted work time. I also worry that she’s not getting enough social interaction with other kids. Should I consider part-time daycare? A nanny? I feel torn (and a bit guilty), but need to find a solution.

What questions should I ask during daycare/preschool interviews?

My husband and I just started the process of picking a preschool for our daughter. We’ve toured a few and we’re having a hard time deciding - what questions should we be asking the teachers to help narrow down the best option?

How wide of an age range is too wide?

We're trying to decide whether we want our daughter in a preschool or a home daycare - i just don't know whether she'll learn anything if most of the other kids are younger than her?

How do I teach my daughter to ride a bike?

Hi! We live in an apartment in the Inglewood area and my daughter has started wanting to learn how to ride a bike! Are there any good parks with bike paths in the area that we could visit to teach her how? It can get pretty busy on the streets here, so I’d rather her learn on a bike path/area than on the neighborhood streets. Thx Inglewood mamas.

How do I choose the right Mommy & Me Class?

I think my little one is big enough now for a Mommy & Me class! I’m so excited to be able to get out and meet more moms! I’m totally new to this though and have a few questions. How do I find Mommy & Me classes, do I have to pay for them, and are there any that you are/have been a part of in the Irvine area that I should look into? TIA!
