Just about all of calculus is based on differential and integral calculus, including Calculus 1! However, Calculus 1 is more likely to cover differential calculus, with integral calculus soon after. So there really isn't a right answer for this question.

People often divide Calculus into integral and differential calculus. In introductory calculus classes, differential calculus usually involves learning about derivatives, rates of change, max and min and optimization problems and many other topics that use differentiation. Integral calculus deals with antiderivatives or integrals. There are definite and indefinite integrals. These are used in calculating areas under or between curves. They are also used for volumes and length of curves and many other things that involve sums or integrals. There are thousands and thousand of applications of both integral and differential calculus.

The foundation, in both cases, is the concept of limits. Calculus may be said to be the "study of limits". You can apply a lot of calculus in practice without worrying too much about limits; but then we would be talking about practical applications, not about the foundation.

Integral calculus was invented in the 17th century with the independent discovery of the fundamental theorem of calculus by Newton and Leibniz.

Analysis is a broader term for Calculus and the theorems behind it. It is studied both with real and complex numbers as real and complex analysis. Usually calculus just deals with the basic problems of differential calculus and integral calculus.

You must have a strong basis in Algebra, Algebra II, Geometry and Trigonometry. Usually high schools offer a pre-Calculus course which is somewhat of a conglomeration of the aforementioned courses. Then you would move into differential calculus, integral calculus, vector (multi-variable) calculus, and finally differential equations, which is considered to be at the top of the hierarchy of the calculus courses. So take Algebra, Algebra II, Geometry and Trigonometry to get your strong foundation before begining the calculus sequence.
