How to go about actually finding a preschool/daycare.

So my son's daycare/preschool is not working out any more, and while I'm trying to work with the staff there, it is really time to start exploring our other options. He is 3 now (born June), and in a preschool program, though ideally I'd like a school that has care for younger kids so that he and his brother (6 month old) could go to the same place. The other issue is we do need full time care, so half day or 3 day a week programs wouldn't work.
Previously (when the trouble at his current school started), I tried just searching on the internet for daycares or preschools and trying to contact them, but I didn't feel like I got a full list of the schools/daycare places around. Is there a better place to look? A better site to visit? Is the information on accredited programs in a region around somewhere? If it helps, we live and work around Boston (but we can't afford in Boston tuition costs). I know this seems like a simple thing to do, but I dont' get a sense that the online presence for preschools/daycares is actually very good.
