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, but we haven't used them. I don't think they are very expensive. We have an in-home babysitter / nanny, and pay 900 leva/month for about 40 hours per week (about US$520). - May 17, 2016
Yes but no experience. You may hear otherwise but it is possible to find daycare for children starting at 1 years old. - Dec 18, 2014
Yes, around US$400. - Nov 23, 2014
My favorite is Montessori School in Studentskigrad. That is the only daycare that provides your choice of organic food for kids. Others are very typical, just famous by being in major housing areas. I would not recommend them as most of them have only 20-25 m2 rooms for 10 kids to play ALL DAY. And they serve cakes and cookies as snacks, I thinks that tells a lot. - Aug 16, 2014
There are a few English speaking daycare centers, but I'm not too sure about their quality. - Jun 3, 2011
Yes, it's available. I think Wonder World is pretty good I have heard. - Oct 30, 2009
Plenty of daycare options available at very good rates. - Feb 9, 2008
