Are preschools available? Day care? Are these expensive? What has been your experience with them, if any? Do the schools provide before- and/or after-school care?

Yes, they are available and not very expensive compared to US preschools. - Aug 2020

Not to Western standards, from our research. - May 2016

We hired an extremely competent and caring fulltime housekeeper who became a part-time nanny once our son was born and I went back to work part-time. We offered a couple of raises and bonuses throughout her time with us. By the end, we were paying her roughly US$225/month, which I believe was on the higher side. But she earned it. - Aug 2015

There are some preschools available, including a program at the American School. Most people seem to use nannies (widely available and not too expensive) instead of daycare. - Jun 2010

We have a nanny who is fantastic. The AISL offers pre-school for children aged 3 or more and runs from 8-12:30pm daily. - Mar 2009
