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?

No. - Oct 25, 2013
There is one decent preschool, French speaking only. It was hard to conform to their limited schedule. You must have a car to get there. - Mar 4, 2008
There are excellent preschools but taking advantage of them is at your own risk because the security sitation is so unpredictable. I did not enroll my children for that reason. - Mar 3, 2008
I had my child with me until the 11 December bombings when I decided to take him home. Prior to that I had a full time nanny who was reasonably priced. She was not trained as a nanny but she loved my kid, so it worked out. A family here had their child attend a local preschool and they seemed satisfied, though they also took their children home after the bombings. - Feb 25, 2008
