Oh k fair enough.
Different types of kids educational learning activities are available in preschool to increase the physical as well as mental knowledge for your child. Psychological development is primary object for all preschool. So in my Opinion Preschool is better than daycare
We dont have a preschool within a reasonable distance so my kids have all gone to daycare instead.
The care they go to run a preschool type program in the bigger kids rooms.
Daycare your child can go all day every day if need be. There's other children and babies (in separate rooms usually) of different ages (around 3 months to 5/6 years).
Preschool is usually only 2-3 days a week at set times. Only the same age group (usually 3-5 year olds).
I work so we need the hours that day care provides. They have a room for kindy kids who are 3.5 ish to school age. This year, my ds is doing 4 yo kindy and there are two other 4 year olds in his room. The three of them usually do "proper" kindy stuff, like letter and number recognition etc while the 3 year olds do more play based stuff.
I'd advise to check the qualifications of the teachers. Are they university trained with a bachelor of education (ECE)
In WA childcare workers do not need university qualifications, however kindergarten teachers in schools do
